The Little Mermaid~

No not the Disney film, my latest card.

Mind you my daughter and I LOVE "The Little Mermaid" film, (and the songs, like "Under the Sea" and "Part of your World")!
Actually my daughter loves ALL the Disney films, not surprising for a girl I hear you say.....Well no it isn't, but she is 20 years old now, but that does not stop her!! LOL

I have been wanting to use this lovely Tilda Mermaid stamp for a while now, she has only been stamped once and I have had her ages! Naughty me!
All the other stamps used such as the Seahorse, Seaweed and bubbles are also Magnolia, but my friend Angie bought me these to go with her, and they do, they are so sweet. The sentiment is a Crafty Individual Stamp, I picked this up at Port Sunlight recently for £2, what a bargain!!

I have use a swirly "water" type paper which came this morning in My Scrapbook Magazine, It goes perfect as water once the swirls are cut into. The doily that the image is stamped onto is a Marianne die, I don't use it very often, it is very large. This card is 6x6 and it almost fills the whole frame, but I thought it worked ok with all the different stamps I was using. Image is coloured with Pro-Markers, and I have highlighted with some Stardust stickles, mock stitching & Hobbyhouse pearls.

On a non-craft subject the amazing Roger Federer is out of Wimbledon, boo hoo, but my second favorite Rafa Nadal, is thankfully still on track. I am not a Murray fan, but I do think he is playing brilliantly, but cannot see anyone beating Rafa if he is having a good day, lets just hope he is!!!

Great card - that stamp is so sweet. I bet you'll be glued to the TV tomorrow! I couldn't believe Federer went out either - I really thought he would get to the final at least.

Enjoy it!
