Did any of you see recently where Ellen Hutson asked what crafty trend do you dislike that most people seem to love? It was a great topic of discussion on Facebook and Instagram; I loved joining that conversation! I'm the one that never joined the mermaid wave (HA), pineapple palooza, or unicorn unites! Not my thing, but they are the thing of many others and they make amazing creations with them!
I had a friend ask for a mermaid card for a friend's birthday; she specifically wanted it to say: "I hope your birthday is like a shimmering mermaid"; then she sent me this link: Cottonelle Shimmering Mermaid. That's just funny peeps! So I had used a mermaid previously from Ladybug Crafts Ink (no longer in business) and knew it would be perfect to use again. So I set about making my card.
