Sparklin' Mermaid!!!.....and wanna hang out with me??


Time for another Magnolia??? I think so! Here is one that I've been dying to play with since I got her! I orginally bought the trio of Fishies to go with Edwin Fishing and you may have seen them on this card that I did before. But when I got Mermaid Tilda, I knew they would be perfect with her too!!!

I stamped them all in Black Stazon ink on Stamper's Select white cardstock by Papertrey and coloured them in using my Copic markers. I cut out the fish separately. The patterned paper I used is by Crate Paper and the cardstock is Certainly Celery. I distressed the dp with my Heidi Swapp distressing tool and added some white taffeta ribbon and a tiny piece of ric rac.

Last weekend was Virtual Stamping weekend on SCS and I had to work most of it, but I did get a chance to do a couple of the challenges. One was to create a card with some sparkling bling on it, so I thought these images would fill the bill! I covered the fishies' scales and Tilda's tail with lots of Stardust Stickles to make them all purty!!! Then I added a ghost heart by Heidi Swapp, attached it with a glitter brad and pop dotted those fish!! Very simple layout too. Hope ya like it!!

Okay, so this coming Friday (January 25th), I'm planning a trip to Petrolia to my favourite stamp and scrapbook store, The Town Scrapper....PROVIDING that the weather is okay for driving! It is about an hour and fifteen minutes from where I live, so the roads have to be okay for me to set out. But I'm planning to meet Phebe in Petrolia and have lunch at a fabulous restaurant there, called Actors. You may remember me mentioning my last trip to P-town and the fabulous meal I had there. So we'll be meeting up for a nice lunch around noon and then we'll be going back to the store for some stamp shoppin'!! If you live in the Southwestern Ontario area and would like to join us, I'd love to meet ya!!! Just zip me off a quick email so I know how many to make reservations for at Actors and we'll see you there!!! It's gonna be lots of fun!!

Oh girl I wish I could be there with you to hang out and (ofcourse) shop! But it would take me for days to arrive over there *lol*;-)))

Your sparkly mermaid card is so gorgous, I don't own that stamp but it's on my (huge) wishlist.

Have fun and take care!

XO, Inge
