It's an Underwater Circus!

Uugh, Water...I don't really even want to think about water right now! I just discovered that the pilot light for my water heater went out sometime earlier today and now when we light it, it won't stay lit. So, we have called a plumber (the one recommended to us!) and they have yet to return our call! (I am setting this to auto post so this is all going on Thursday night!) Well, at least this little Mermaid Sweety is enjoying her water adventures!

The Details:
Stamps: Mermaid Anya, Fish from Down by the Pond, Hat from Showtime - all The Greeting Farm
Paper: My Minds Eye, Taken With Teal, Old Olive, PTI White
Copics:
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Hair:BG11,BG32,BG34,BG72,BG75,BG78
Tail and hat: YG95,YG97,YG99
Fish:Y17,YR15,YR16,YR18
Misc: Liquid Pearls, Clear Dew Drops, Clear Microbeads on the tail, the seaweed is a Martha Stewart leaf punch.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Absolutely gorgeous, Traci! Sorry about your water heater issues :( Hope they get resolved asap! I have to laugh because the word verification on your blog right now is the word "revive" and it made me think of a cold shower, LOL! That's not funny I'm sure right now, but maybe it will be when the prob is fixed :D Smiles and hugs to you, my friend!

Hi Traci
Hope you were able to get the pilot light to stay lit. That's no fun. Cold showers on a Friday morning are no fun.

Your card is super cute. Her little hat and sparkly fin is super cute and I like that you have the fish going through the hoop. Very inventive.

Traci!!! I LOVE every detail of this card!!! Amazing!!
I especially love that you used microbeads on her tail!! It looks so incredible!! I have a boat load of those beads somewhere....

Sorry bout the water heater! We had water heater issues not to long ago. if it's 7-10 years old. Just replace it. They only last 10 years. They just don't make things like they used to.
Good luck!
