A Cute Little Merman

Hello, and happy Wednesday!  I have a quick post for you today.  Whew!!  The week is half over, and can you believe that January is almost gone?   So it's January, but I'm already thinking summer!!  Well, I was when I created this card with this free digi from The Greeting Farm.   I had fun bringing a little warmth of summer into my craft space while I was putting Mr. Ian Merman together.

I colored this image with my SU inks and an aquapainter/blender pen.  The DP is a find from a LSS.  I used a two way glue pen and some Dazzling Diamonds on his tail, and finished off the card with the ribbon, a shell, and the metal edge tag with the happy birthday sentiment.   Pretty fast and easy for me, and I like that once in a while. :-)

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a blessed day, happy stamping!

Love ya,
