Especially for you Mermaid card (Crafts and Me/Hannah Lynn image)

Hi everyone,

Sorry I've been missing in action a little this week, what with my new office job and we had a stall at a craft show this weekend, I've not been able to find much time to scrap, poor me sob sob haha, I hope you've found more time than me!

This card is created with a Crafts & Me (Hannah Lynn) mermaid image, isn't she gorgeous? The dusty pink flower and pearls I've dotted around the image are from Flourish with a Bling, most of the other embellishments come from Live & Love Crafts online store.

Flourish with a Bling have a 50% off sale all throughout May, the only items not discounted are the already amazingingly priced value packs, everything else is half off!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide. Please email if you would like rough estimates of shipping, if we can send it as a large letter we will or perhaps get your friends to all buy too and share the postage! If you're order is over $200AUD we will pay half the shipping (international orders).
