Mermaids Make Memories (say that fast three times)

This "under the sea" theme cried out - put a mermaid on it!!!

A center-step card using Miss Melissa Mermaid (colored her with alcohol markers), some punched out butterflies, a few water-colored flowers, a sentiment of "thinking of you", and a bit of glitz shows off a nice card to send to a shut-in. (Pardon my studio table, but you can see where I create)

This mermaid, Mae, is a digi stamp that I colored and fussy cut for a bulletin board project at Vacation Bible School.

I added a fancy container with flowers as a background for her.  I used a regular coloring book page for the background and dressed it up with some sparkle and shine.  Mae is an articulated paper doll (meaning her arms can move) which adds interest to the project.

BTW - August 2 is National Adult Coloring Day - many libraries and other venues are encouraging adults to color to resolve stress issues.  It's fun and it's relaxing!!!
