Mermaid Greetings for HSS296!


Happy Weekend!

Thank you for Peeking in for Today’s Card!


Today’s Card is for a Color Challenge from

Hand Stamped Sentiments #296



Here is the Challenge!

HSS 296


Here is my Card!


I did use Ivory and Soft Sea Foam for her ‘skin’ and the shell she is holding!

Perusing Amazon for ‘Animal Stamps’…I feel upon this Stamp Set!

I am not a Mermaid person…but, I found out this past Spring, my

friend Joan, up in MA, loves Mermaids! So I had to get one!

It was only $.99!!! Shipping was $3…just my price!

So Cute!


Here is the inside of my Card!


It was hard to stick to just the 3 colors but, I did it!

Though I did use the 2 other colors on the front.

Just a smidge!

Here is my Card again!


I am starting to envision another card with this already!

It will involve a lot of fussy cutting with the mermaid…such is the cost,

when it’s a labor of Love!

Loving labors and Blessings to you ALL!
