It's a Mermaid Boy!!!

Howdy! Yea, I know I said I was taking a bit of a break 'til Tuesday...
but who can not resist coloring in this cutie :)

First, I'd like to thank everyone who commented on my mini-Guest Designer, Nicky's, post!
He LOVED all of the responses that was received! and loved even more learning about where y'all come from! He grabbed the Atlas and couldn't belive that so many people in the world can see his stuff :) Too cute!

Thank you sooo very much for making my boy smile from ear to ear for days :)

"It's a Mermaid Boy!!!" - that's what my boys screamed when they saw Mer Ian, lol! They never knew or thought that a boy could be a mermaid too :)  and what a coincidence it was to watch a special Dora movie all Dora saving the mermaids kingdom - boys and girls! It was a fun afternoon!

So here's my lil Mer Ian for The Greeting Farm's CHA Relay Contest! I usually don't make cards everyday, I always try to do a few at a time, but like I said, who can resist anything that comes from the Greeting Farm ;)

Once I printed Mer Ian, I pulled out my Matey Set, thinking I would be using Pirate Anya...
I decided to go with just the sentiment and handsome blue papers with a bit of distressing -
Ian deserves the spotlight :)
Look closely (or click on pic) - see my boy sparkle for me!

Margie this is way toooo cute!! I love what you did with him, and your card is super cute!!!!

I sent you an email, hope you get it, if not send me one here at I know what you are talking about with the needle, so I sent you a link, let me know if this helps, I was thinking of having hubby help me do one on the needle, and re-setting the settings, its super easy!!!

Enjoy your day!
