Jasmine Becket-Griffith, "Pearls Swirl Mermaid

OMGOSH!!!! My Jasmine Becket-Griffith stamps from Crafts and Me finally came in Friday. WHOO HOO!!! I have be patiently awaiting for there arrival. Don't laugh but I have been working overtime this week and I had my Mom come by my house and check my mail on Wednesday, Thursday and then on Friday she called me to say the card was in the mail to let me know they were at the post office. So you know what that mean't she went to the post office and got them for me as I get off way too late to make it to the post office in time. Isn't my Mom just the BEST Mom ever??? With these coming from the UK they do take longer to reach me here in the US but so worth the wait.
SO now onto my card. I used "Pearls Swirl Mermaid" by Jasmine Becket-Griffith at Crafts and Me. As soon as I saw that Teresa, owner of Crafts and Me UK was going to be carrying her artwork as stamps I was beyond excited!!! hee,hee. I am a big fan if her artwork and I always hoped she would turn some of her artwork into stamps so I could color and create with them.

This is the first of many more to come and I hope you love it as much as I do. I really don't think I can part with this card. I am working on more so I should have alot more to show you this week. I am also working on some Sweet Pea Cards also and trying to get caught up from not being able to create this week due to all the hours I have been working at work.

I really wish you could see this card in real life and these pictures just don't do it justice at all.
Here is a list of my supplies I used this card.
