Pretty little mermaids

Hello! I woke up early this morning, enjoyed my coffee in the company of Shadow and Nester, and thought I really need to be productive today... We have, once again, started remodeling/renovating projects on our house and while DH is outside busy digging holes for the handrail posts to finish our smaller set of steps, I need to be sorting through boxes in the garage. You see how well I motivated myself to do that job... ha!  Actually, I wanted to quickly post a sweet birthday card I made earlier for one of my great-nieces.  I thought the cute mermaids would make a nice card and added a bit of bling because um... it's a little girl's mermaid birthday card... and shouldn't mermaids want sparkly things too?!

This was a very easy card to put together. The most difficult part was placing the teeny tiny rhinestones on three of the mermaids ponytails.  The banner was already created from an older SU card kit that I vaguely remember buying long ago.

Well, that garage is not going to empty itself. I know, I tried waiting to see if maybe by chance we bought an enchanted house that would such luck...  So I am off to dig through some boxes and totes and see what forgotten treasures I can find.  Wish me luck!

I hope you have a fabulous day and thanks so much for stopping by!
