ADFD Blog Hop

**Please see my Flourishes post below**
It's the first Friday of the month and that means we're showing off a brand new A Day For Daisies Club Kit!  These kits are amazing, folks.  Today I am using this sweet image called Oceans Little Girl.

I colored up this sweetie with Copic markers and shaded around the image with Prismacolor pencils and oms.  I painted the tail and fin with Shimmerz Angel Wings to give it lots of shimmer which you can see in the close up below.

I also used the Shimmerz to make random sparkly dots around the image.  I used a scrap of Heidi Grace paper with an undersea theme that also shimmers!

This is Leprechaun Cutie and she’s colored with Copic markers and shaded with Prismacolor pencils.  Into my scraps again, I found this great polka dot paper from Bo Bunny.

Your little mermaid is so precious, Danielle! Love her red hair! The Little girl (red-headed!) sitting on the shamrock is so darn cute! Love how you colored her and that sentiment is too cool!

It's genuinely very difficult in this full of activity life to listen news on TV, so I simply use internet for that purpose, and get the most recent information.
