By The Sea, By The Sea...

Hello, Happy Wednesday! The weather here in New England is so beautiful right now. A perfect day to work outside amongst the flowers. This is my last week of summer school then it is a few weeks off before school starts up and I am back to work again.

I thought I would post this card I made before the summer and a beautiful day a the beach is gone.
I just loved this Wee Mermaid and thought she would look pretty surrounded in ocean colors. It is hard to see but there is alot of glitter and sparkle on this card. I hope you like it and it brings some fond memories of your times at the seashore.
