Have a Merwee Christmas...


Hello friends!

Our final digital stamp release for 2023 at Sweet November Stamps has been a much requested theme and we are finally celebrating the holidays under the sea with the Merwee Christmas collection. There are seven festive Merwees and their aquatic friends all full of joy and good cheer; Lucy's Sandman, McCallister and Kate, Calvin and Eve, Ralphie and Tasha, Griswold and Bethany, Merri's Sleigh Ride and Angelina and her Seaweed Christmas Tree.

For my first card I paired Tasha and her little otter friend, Ralphie, with the fish that come with Tide Mayfin and some seaweed from the Deep Sea Friends: Ocean Background Builder set as well as one of the sentiments from the Christmas sentiment pack. I had fun playing up the candy cane theme by giving the fish a red and white striped patterning for an extra festive look.

Next, I have Calvin and Eve paired with the Mermaid Rock and some bubbles and gifts that come with the Seaweed Christmas Tree. Calvin is a very special Angler Fish who uses his mistletoe lure to angle for a Christmas kiss or two.

Finally for today, I've made a long slimline card using Merri's Sleigh Ride and some more bubbles from the Seaweed Christmas Tree. Merri has hitched up her magical sea horses to her seashell sleigh in order to help out Santa and deliver gifts to all of the Merwees in the sea.  :)

Now be sure to check out the Friends of Sweet November Stamps group on Facebook for even more Merwee Christmas fun from Caitlin, Lisa, Allison and Amanda, as well as our awesome digital team!
