A little mermaid for a little girl

Hi all,

I'm sorry I haven't been around since Monday, but I'm trying to make a start on sorting things out and I also have lots of DT cards to do so that I am two months ahead for when I don't have my stuff. For those who asked in my previous post what I thought about moving back, well, I'm in two minds. It will be lovely to see our family and friends and for them to see Martha (my parents haven't seen her yet), but we have such a wonderful outdoor lifestyle here, I love my job and we have loads of friends that we will miss. Daisy has done a lot of her growing up here and also has a lot of friends, so she will also find it tough. At least she will be going to school in September so she will meet a lot of new potential friends. It will be hard at first, but we'll just have to make an effort to fit back into life. At least we have a house there already, although I'm not sure what state it will be in.

Well, enough of the waffling and onto my card. Daisy's best friend from kindy is 4 at the start of May and loves fairies, princesses and mermaids. I have used a cute image from Stamp Fairy and matched her with papers by Panda bear designs. I coloured some strips of acetate with a green sakura pen and put it over the image for seaweed (I think they can just be seen on the photo). The sentiment is a freebie from Netty - thank you!

While I was making this, Daisy decided she wanted to make one for her friends as well. She has coloured the image and once she has made her card I will post it up here.
I would like to enter this into the Stamp Fairy challenge - for girls, with a sentiment.
