Mermaid Anya


I can't help it, I just love mermaids! I see them everywhere now! When I saw Mermaid Anya in Summer's store at Roses on Paper, I had to have her! I love The Greeting Farm and this is on the top of my favorites list!

I always talk about Nichole and her love for "The Little Mermaid", but I'm so excited to be able to share that sweet movie with my two grandbabies - Allie and Emma. Gosh, the time is going by so fast and they're growing so much every day. Pretty soon they'll be coming over to Nana's to watch Ariel and swim in the bathtub, singing at the top of their lungs! Oh, how I miss those days.

Mermaid Anya is colored with distressed inks and is highlighted with Shimmerz and Stickles. I added the shells for effec and I love the fish charms! I used my Devine Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder to give some texture to the water! Most of the products can be purchased from Summer. Stop by her store and have a look around. She's got some beautiful things!

I hope you enjoy her as much as I did presenting her.

Card Ingredients: Mermaid Anya by The Greeting Farm, Shimmerz, Stickles, Dew Drops, Pearls.
