Aqua Marina - Sugar Nellie DT

Hello everyone :o)

It's my day to post on the Sugar Nellie blog today, and I thought I'd use one of the lovely mermaids from the Under The Sea collection, as I've not used one for a while.

I'm not at all happy with my colouring - I was at the shivering stage of this rotten cold, and it was a bit difficult to control the pens lol!  And I had the most disastrous day's crafting - I even put one of my dies through the Ebosser the wrong way round and cut a hole in the magnetic shim... sob!
