New Releases, a new challenge - all at A Day for Daisies!

Coffee of the Day - Caramel Pecan

Today begins a new challenge and wonderful new releases over at A Day for Daisies! but before I get to all of that, I do hope that each of you here in the States had a most wonderful Thanksgiving! I didn't even go onto the compy yesterday for one itty bitty moment. We had the most glorious day..... and I am so thankful for so many people, things, gosh, the list is miles long. and know that YOU are on it!!! :)

Tammy has drawn more of her adorable little mermaid friends to bring smiles to our faces. Our new challenge is to use colors from this beautiful photo.

I used this ADORABLE mermaid in a jar image. oh gosh, she makes me smile when I look at her! :) papers are Basic Grey Sweet Threads. the little extras are from Making Memories. the jar lid was cut with a PTI die & fern leaves, which I thought resembles seaweed, with a MS punch. there is so much sparkle irl on here that just doesn't show in the scan. her tail was painted with 4 shades of ink and then covered with sparkle shimmer spray. her hair was painted similar to the sand and then highlighted with the same sparkle spray. the sand was painted with 3 shades of ink and then stipped with dark brown ink, highlighted with white craft.
