I want to be . . .


part of your world. Everytime I see or hear of a mermaid, Ariel comes to mind and that sweet little song. For some of us who have had daughters that have played out their Disney's "The Little Mermaid" VCR tape or DVD, it might not sound so sweet. My Nichole is still the biggest Ariel fan around. As much as I love Tink, she loves Ariel. But who wouldn't want to be young, beautiful and thin and be able to swim around in the ocean and feel the warm sun on you as you relax on a rock. Oh, yes, while we're expecting more snow, I'm so wanting to be part of Ariel's world right now!

Tilda Mermaid is a stamp that's very special to me. You can pick her up from Summer at Roses on Paper. Two people who I dearly love sent her to me and I've held on to her because I wanted to find just the right paper for her. When I saw these pastel bubbles at Joann's and found this beautiful underwater scene in the Fantasy pack of Dovecraft paper from Susana, who is the only person in the US that carries this lucious paper, I knew it was time to stamp her up!

Speaking of twos, what I love best about what I'm doing for Summer and Susana is that I get to work with two really great, talented design teams, do cards using the greatest products from two of the greatest online stores of two of the greatest ladies around! I love that they don't mind when I combine their products for a great card!

Hey Don't forget the Promo Susana has going on right now!!! If you purchase any 4 regular Lockhart Stamps (any combination) from either the New or Previous collection (NOT including Itty Bittys) you will get to select a free IB from the selection that she has available at the time at her store. You do not need to buy all 4 at once. She has a punch card system and will let you know when you hit the 4 regular
Lockharts!!! Shop here!

And take a look at The Greeting Farm stamps that Summer is going to be carrying. They are just too cute and she's got a pre-order going on.

Wouldn't it be nice to have such a carefree and whimsical life? I could take it for about a lifetime! Have a great day!

Recipe: Tilda Mermaid from Magnolias at Roses on Paper, copics, Shimmerz in Pink Poinsettia and Opal, Crystal Stickles, nestabilities, Fantasy Paper from Dovecraft, DCWV glitter paper, ribbon, sea shells, SU pastels.
