Crafty Gals Corner #97- Use a Sentiment; Mermaid Brithday Card using Lacy Sunshine- Rory Just a Lil Mer

This week the challenge is Use a Sentiment !

Our sponsors this week are:

Lacy Sunshine
Prize: 3 Digital Images

Here's a bit about our sponsor: 
"Heather Valentin  is  creative ,  award winning,  modern-day  fantasy and  whimsical  artist who has displayed a dynamic and vibrant energy while painting professionally for over 18 years.
She  began to express herself creatively through movement at a very young age. 
For many years she studied dance, being drawn to forms that allowed creative self expression, all the while feeling this constant urge to create with her hands. The canvas is now her dance floor where color, beauty and drama are expressed through her every pencil sketch and  brush stroke. Her  subjects vary from fairies, fantasy, mermaids, vampires, dragons, wildlife, abstract and more. She is one who is inspired in a single moment. Her  dreams, moods and the the unfolding beauty of the world around her is what charts her dance for the day. She is most alive when sketching and painting, creating timeless pieces that reflect her heart and soul. Drawing breathes life into her soul- it enables her to reach out and touch lives. This gives her a place in the world one character and painting at a time.

Heather's  artist portfolio  has  expanded to include such  clients  as   Pepsi, Outback Steakhouse, Nabisco, Zephryhils  and can now be found  at Laguna Art, Third Stone Art Gallery and Sausalito Art Galleries, along with commercial and private collections across 

the globe. "

I love this adorable little mermaid!! She is beyond sweet and a real treat to color!! My "neice" is celebrating her 3rd Birthday in a few weeks and I thought this would be the perfect image to create a little card for her!

I colored Rory Just a Lil Mer from Lacy Sunshine up with my copics using a few of my classes over at Kit and Clowder. Then I used the Disney Princess Dreams Come True cartridge to cut the clam shell and my Cricut even wrote the sentiment for me!! I added some CTMH Blue Glitter enamel dots and coated a Recollections Seahorse in purple liquid pearls just to finish her off. 

I hope you like my little mermaid of the day!! I can't wait to see all the different sentiments everyone uses this week!! Ta-Ta for now!!
