I'm really a mermaid!

Hi everyone, hope you are well. I still can't hear properly and have a permanently sore throat, not bad enough to trouble the doctor but annoying enough to leave me feeling grumpy!

To cheer myself up I decided to get out some washi tape (I'm washi crazy at the moment) and make a card. I took some inspiration from an article by Sue Hughes in Quick Cards magazine for this one.

I picked this fab mermaid washi tape in Hobbycraft- some is their own brand with the two foiled tapes and starfish made by Dovecraft. The stamp was a freebie from a magazine and the mirri card is Hunkydory. I finished off with a few sequins.

If you watched Mary Portas on Channel 4 recently, she predicted that mermaids will replace unicorns as the big trend in shops. To be honest they seem to have been popular for a while in craft but I like them so that's ok!

Today is a day off and it's a day of treating myself- I have a haircut booked and am starting the day with a "feel-good" session held by a life coach. My friend has been going for a while and has totally chaged her outlook on life, losing 4 stone on the way, so I'm hoping for great things from the session. Have a great weekend. Cathy x
