Happy Tuesday, my "sugar" lovin' friends!! Wasn't yesterday's "mini" Blog Hop such fun?! And have you already fallen in love with Sugar Nellie's little "Under the Sea" stamp? I know I have!! Well, get ready 'cuz today is Day TWO of Sugar Nellie's "Under the Sea" Mini Blog Hop. Remember, we're also having mini blog hops tomorrow (Wednesday) and Friday this week!!

Okey dokey . . . let's get a move on, shall we? If you've arrived here from my lovely and incredibly talented Design Team "sistah," Michele, then you are definitely right where you're supposed to be!!

Pat (that's me . . . and you are here! hehe!) 

Now . . . are ya ready to see my version of "Ocean's Gift"? Well, wait no more, my lovelies!!
I decided to keep this card pretty simple . . . because I wanted to really showcase this gorgeous little mermaid and her seahorse friend!! I must thank my sweet friend and DT sister, Astrid, for giving me the idea to use a real pearl (well, a real "faux" pearl) for the image's pearl! Thanks Astrid! I totally stole this brilliant idea from you...and I will definitely steal it again! You ROCK, girlfriend! hugs!!
These papers are delicious, don't you agree? So soft and muted. I love 'em!! Here's another side view . . .
