Mermaid Birthday Card

Created the Mermaid using Pirates & Mermaids Cricut cartridge. There are 2 very teeny tiny pieces: one for the eye & one for a strand of hair (at least I think that is what the 2nd piece is since it is a side view of the Mermaid 2 eyes would not be seen and there is a cut near the shoulder for placement). Used a sketch you can see below. Added a wobble to back of Mermaid.

Wobble action:

    1. The Pirates & Mermaids is a Cricut Lite cartridge and hubby got it for me at WalMart. Noticed that WalMart is clearancing Cricut stuff. One WalMart no longer has any Cricut stuff. Other one had clearance prices on the cartridges. I bought Children Around the World Cricut Lite reg $39.99 on clearance for $29.99.
