The Little Mermaid

Apr 22, 2009 Author: mytime | Filed under: Home decor/3-D items, Pink Cat Studio

Are you ready to screech from your computer screen?

If you have a girl you will need this set! If you have boys you will be beggin your husband for a baby girl! LOL!

I have another peek from Pink Cat Studio-Lily at the Beach!


OH MY HEAVENS! Isn’t she fabulous?!


Amber-elle (Instead of Ariel-My daughter Amber called her that! LOL! She said its her name as a Mermaid. We always say Lily is a cartoon version of Amber :D)

 Is this not the cutest Mermaid you ever did see?

 I’m in LOVE people!


I altered this little plastic tomato container for this project. Nifty eh?

Jay was getting ready to throw it out, when Noah said “NO! Dad! WAIT! You better ask mommy first if she wants it for her stamping stuff!” What a good boy!! Great thinking Noah. HAHAHAHAHA Isn’t that hilarious! I didn’t even think to keep it till he said that! Then I praised him for his good thinking.


Makes a super cute gift, don’t you think? Thank goodness for purple Easter Grass!

Amber has inherited this, as we speak. She claimed it before it was even finished. She is funny- she likes to carry around LITTLE weird items. Ever since she was a baby, she would find these little (choking hazards) and hold them, or put them in her little pocketbooks and carry them around ALL day. She even hides them under her pillow. Her pediatrician would yell at me that they were choking hazards, but she NEVER, EVER put stuff in her mouth. She just loved holding them. Anyway-she is 4 now and still finds weird little things to carry in weird places. She loves little containers. Lord only knows what will end up in here!


I made the sea shell myself! A total AH! HA! moment!

I used the SU! Scallop punch to cut the 2 sides at a curve, then dry embossed it for the shell! I then sponged on some shimmery pastel chalks-to finish the look! LOVED IT!

I hope you like it too 😀

Well I have TONS to do! You are all ROCKING your design team samples for my design team. SO HARD to pick. I think Im extending to 12! LOL! I don’t know-you are KILLING me with your creativity. Im still working on looking-but think Im mainly waiting till the END of the week to get it done all at once.

Thanks for the great efforts and submissions-you all blow me away!!

Don’t forget to add my NEW Blinkie to your site! I have a FAB challenge ready for Saturday! Im actually SUPER excited about it.

    A month or so ago I was asked by Danni from Danni’s Dreams- to participate in her blog challenge called Flutter By Wednesday’s. She features a guest, so I figured-why not?

    Danni-knowing my LOVE for Butterflies/Fairies, was totally asking the right person! How could I say NO?

    I had fun taking time out of my INSANE schedule of events to “play”! We all need that. This is what its all about. I have been purchasing some Greeting Farm images (which I am just in complete LOVE with), and sadly they sit un-used. Waiting to be inked. So I knew NOW was the time to finally ink one up!

    So I used my Eva Fairy (I have a few more on the way! YEAH!)

    I like to call this Bliss


    She looks so happy, calm, and at ease. Like she took a deep breath of the fragrant flowers, and is enjoying her day. I’m am joining her! :D)

    I’m in love with the colors-ripe avocado, spring moss, teal, aqua, and melon berry-with some orangey color-that I don’t know the mane of but am loving too.

    I used my  Sketch 28 for this design, which really helped make things so much quicker. Sketches are always a great starting point. Happy I finally used my own sketch! LOL!!!

    Here is the my close-up


    I totally LOVE making images pop out of their little “box”. I think she looks like she’s flying right towards us.

    I’m happy with my coloring on this too. You can’t mess her up, she is SO cute!

    So that is all for this post.

    Thanks for stopping by!
