Mermaid on a Monday

Yeah, I know it isn't Monday, but I mailed this card out on a Monday. It was for my on-line stamp group.  We have this thing where you mail a card to your partner every Monday all month long.

When I'm not trying to use up kits I have plenty of other random things around for me to try to use up. Apparently I am very good at starting projects but not so good at finishing them.  That leads to lots and lots of piles of UFOs.

UFO = UnFinished Object.
I had several stamped images, cards with papers, and random card parts on my desk for an embarrassingly long time. So for my Monday Mailers in July every card I sent was made by finishing off those undone cards.

This card was one of them. The colored image and the designer paper were paired up with a white card base. I decided to change that to a shimmery blue and add a wave die cut, twine and eyelets. That was so easy I don't know why it took me *mumble*mumble* years to do.

The Fine Print: Stamp by ERA Graphics, wave die by Taylored Expressions, shimmer paper and twine by A Muse and other stuff from my stash.

I WAS going to be impressed you used eyelets, but those are brads, unless they're special "I look like a brad" eyelets. I might have some of those in a special box.

And look at you using up your kits. I'm so happy for you. Are you reclaiming space? DO NOT FILL IT WITH NEW THINGS! *ahem*

You are doing VERY WELL at finishing off your UFO's and your kits. I am SOOO impressed.

Great mermaid card.

Hugs, Sarn xxx

it always feels good to get those piles cleaned off and i enjoy the challenge of seeing what i can make with the left overs. This is a very kewl kard and i could use some beach time myself. it rarely happens.

Great colors, coloring and waves too! I'm digging that cool designer paper for the background, it's very cool looking!
