Sugar Nellie Sneak Week - day two

It's day two of the Sugar Nellie blog hop, and I think today's reveal might be my favourite of these lovely mermaid stamps... of course, I might have changed my mind again by tomorrow!


If you arrived here from Anita's blog, then you're on the right track... if not, do pop over to the Sugar Nellie blog so you don't miss anyone's gorgeous creations for today.




Mermaids can carry off the pink hair look, right?  Lol... I just had the urge to colour her hair pink and couldn't resist!  This little lovely is called Ocean's Gift and she'll be available from Funky Kits along with her mermaid friends, on Friday 3rd August.

I've coloured her with promarkers and flexmarkers, and added my little Viva pearl dots around her.  The papers are Raspberry Rd's Let Them Eat Cake, printed onto linen card.  The leaves were cut with a Stampin' Up die, sentiment is also Stampin' Up.  The flower is the Memory Box cherry blossom die (again!) with a silver spacer and black pearl from my stash.

Your next stop on the hop is the lovely Vicky - go and see her fabulous card, and don't forget to leave comments along the way as there's hidden candy to be won!

Today we're off to meet up with Morgan's 'girlfriend' Katie and her mum... well, the pair of them can't possibly be parted for the whole 6wks holidays!  So if I don't get chance to catch up with you this morning, I'll be around to see you in the evening instead.  Hope you all have a lovely day :o)
