The Little Mermaid

Good morning all!

Finally I got to spend some time in my craft room over the weekend... it's been a while since I had a good crafting session... I can tell by my DT card I made for Cupcake, I went all out on the embellishments and stuck on anything and everything! Our theme this week at Cupcake Craft Challenge, chosen by our lovely cupcake mummy Faye, is ALL AT SEA! We'd like to see something to do with water; the seaside, fishing, nautical colours etc.

For my card I used a stamp that I've had for like, forever, and have never used! Shock horror! How many of us are guilty of that one? This little mermaid is of course from Kraftin' Kimmie, and to be honest I really don't know why I haven't inked her up before. I enjoyed colouring her and creating this little underwater scene. And I definately didn't skimp on the sparkle! I embossed the background paper just to give it a little more texture and interest.

We are kindly sponsored by Marianne Design who are giving away this super bundle of goodies to our lucky, random winner...
Hope you can play along with us this week... happy crafting!

Tu sais, moi aussi j'ai des tampons que je n'ai encore jamais utilisés, les journées ne sont pas assez longues pour pouvoir utiliser tout notre matériel hihi !
Bisous encore frisquets, mais le soleil fait son apparition !
