You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends

I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.  
What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:

B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14
(Background and her Eyes)
E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35  
(Skin and Sand).
RV02, 04, 21, 23
(Water Background)
V01, 05, 06, 09 
(Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed)
YG21, 23, 25  
(Water Background)
YR21, 23, 25

I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop:
Here's the link to the Color It!  Create It! Show It Off Challenge!
The theme is "By The Sea/Anything Goes

I hope you will take a few moments and check out the creatons by the rest of the Design Team.

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…
