Mermaid Wishes!

Today I made a card using some already watercolored pre-embossed papers that I acquired some time ago and this paper was in a Prima Marketing Watercolor Pad. I had watercolored it several months ago and then decided I did not like it. But today I thought it might work with this cute little mermaid I got from the Mini Mermaid digital set from Tiddly Inks. So together with some dies and card stock I proceeded to create this birthday card which I think my granddaughter will like. As long as it is mermaids or unicorns she is happy!

I colored the little mermaid with my Copic Markers and then fussy cut it out. The sentiment was computer generated. I tried to make her hair look more like the colors of the rainbow. I am not sure I was too successful but at least I tried.

I am entering this card in the Double D's Challenge-Rainbows, Unicorns and Mermaids. I chose to use the mermaid part of the inspiration photo for my card. 

We are still getting a nice slow rain. We have around 4 inches now and I know this is going to be a big boost to any crops that are already planted and those which will be planted later on. We were so dry so this is very welcomed. Only down side for me is my aches and pains in my old bones is a tad worse. Oh, well! I can cope with it for awhile.

Take care and thanks for visiting!

God bless, Verna

Rainbow hair mermaid it is then. Adorable. Aches and pains like this are a good thing. I over did it yesterday changing some landscaping and now I feel your pain, but feel it is worth it.
