This is a little bio from Ann Marie:-

I live on Eastern Long Island, NY and teach high school English.  My husband and I are married 24 years and have a two children. My mother taught me to knit, crochet and quilt when I was a young girl and it continues to bring me great joy. She also introduced me to quilting.  My interest in papercrafts began about 7 years ago when I took a rubber stamp class at my local library. From that moment on, I became completely and totally addicted to cardmaking and rubber stamping. My craftroom is truly my sanctuary! I am very blessed to have such a supportive family, inspiring teachers, and wonderful friends with whom I share my love and creative expression.  My blog has afforded me the opportunity to meet and learn from some of the most talented and inspiring women all over the world.

For my post this week, I colored up a rubber stamp, Robin Pushay's "Just a Little Love."   I am a lover of all things mermaid and under the sea, so this was fitting for me to choose.  This little mermaid is colored with copic markers and spica pens. The image is colored using the "feather blending" technique. I have added pearls, die cuts and lowers to embellish the image.
For more details on this card, you can see them on my blog, My Eclectic Spirit, here.   Thank you for the warm welcome.  Why not join our new challenge happening right now on the Crafts and Me Challenge blog, "Charmed, I'm Sure (Add a Charm)."  Have a great day!
