Under The Sea

Good morning! I hope you are having a wonderful start to your day. I know I am, and you want to know why? I told you yesterday there was something I couldn't tell you, but I can tell you now! Today I am turning in my two weeks notice at my job! I have found another job that is a much better fit for me. I am excited to start and SO happy to be leaving where I am now. I feel like I can breathe again, although I do have butterflies thinking about telling them I'm leaving. Think good thoughts for me!

I told you I'd be back with a card to share today, and I have one that I made for this week's Squigglefly Blog challenge where the theme is WATERWORKS! You will probably recognize the image from yesterday's video - it's Sea You Later by Suzanne Urban.

(click to enlarge)

I figure you find fish and mermaids in the water, so this qualifies! I love this mermaid! Suzanne puts so much character into her images don't you agree? I sparkled up her mermaid tail with stickles and painted the shell with some iridescent medium.

The corners were actually punched with a border punch from EK Success, and then I added some little square gems. The sentiment was computer generated on to the designer paper - I know it's a little corny, but I couldn't come up with anything better.

Don't forget about my blog candy, and thanks for looking!
