You Make Me Happy!

Hello Friends and Happy Friday!  School is out and I'm ready to get back into a somewhat regular stamping schedule.  I'm starting today with this week's Blogger's Challenge.  To play along, please visit Lisa Somerville's Blog here.  This week's challenge is a sketch. 

My sweet friend Linda made a resolution at the beginning of the year to buy some stamps from some of the other wonderful companies out there.  I teamed up with her last month and we placed an order from Your Next Stamp.  This delightful little mermaid and the sentiment are from their Happy Days set.  She is colored up with Copic Markers (E000, E00, E01, E23, E25, Y21, YR30, and YR31) and then I fussy cut her out.  I also added lots of Star Dust Stickles for some sparkle.  All of the papers are from the Gertie collection from My Mind's Eye.  I added some machine stitching to the main panel and then I added a black button from Papertrey Ink with some Baker's Twine. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and visit with me.  Have a wonderful weekend!  I'll be back very soon!  Until then...Toodles!
