More Fun in the Craft Room

One more post before I call it a day… how about another adorable mermaid (a freebie from 
I had fun using a bottle of Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops that my sweet hubby gave me as a "just because" gift. (I had them on my Amazon wishlist!) I  need a bit more practice making droplets, but I love the added bit of realism. (And, adding them allows me to enter the card into this week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge "Spots and Dots".)

Another entry into a few Back to School challenges that is kinda of creative. Instead of basic cards, I made a Coloring Card for the daughter of our church's youth pastor. She is excited to be going to Pre-K this month. (The mermaid image is a freebie from sliekje.blogspot.com/) And, if I give this to 4-year-old Lucy, I know that her 2-year-old brother, Ollie, will feel bad if he doesn't get a treat, too. So I used a dinosaur digi from Bugaboo to make a Coloring Card for him. The crayons came from a favorite restaurant that provides them to keep kiddos occupied while waiting for food. After I explained what I was going to do with them, the hostess happily gave me two little packets of them. (And they are the kind that don't roll!)
