Blowing you a kiss...

Hello, hello! 

Day two of MerMay seemed like the perfect opportunity to finally color up this retired Moonlight Whispers mermaid that was originally sold at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. I've had Marina sitting in that pile on my desk for a few years now and I really didn't want to let another summer pass without getting her on a card. I'm such a huge fan of Annie's mermaids and now that she isn't really making new stamps or digis, I'm extra grateful to still have my collection of her older images. It's a lot of fun whenever I get a chance to pull them out and get inky, which I did yesterday when I wanted to add a few extra background images to go with Marina. All the little sea creatures, shells and coral accessory stamps were added yesterday and they really completed the scene. The sentiment is from a small My Favorite Things set and it was too perfect not to pair with her cute little kissy lips. I'm sure that Marina is just as happy as I am now that she has made a home on a card of her own.  :)
