Mermaid and robots???

That title sounds like a really bizarre combination but that's what this post is about!!!

I was contacted by another Etsy seller the other day with the offer of a free digi if I would make a card with it - well, how could I refuse???   I was even more pleased when I visited the shop here and saw the digis available :)
             I couldn't make up my mind so asked the artist to pick one for me and here she is -
I do hope I've done her justice - she was a real pleasure to colour and I'm thinking I may use her again for a spot of paper piecing on her tail.

I would like to enter her for the following -

Now my other card was done as a sample for Lily, the owner of The Octopode Factory.  She sent out some new artwork to the DT and I came up with this creation!  I do love that little robot - he seems to have a retro feel to him (retro sci-fi, is that even possible?).

I would like to put "Hank" in for this masculine challenge -

Thanks so much for stopping by - hope your day is as sunny as mine is today :)

Darn it! I lost my comment... Anyway, I have an adorable MayzyArt digi on my blog today, too! They are fab! And your mermaid and her scene look amazing!
I really like how you have an echo? of your robot behind him! The coloring looks great!

She does look like she'd be fun to color. m :-) And who better to do it. Just look at that gorgeous red hair! I'm not much of a robot girl but this little guy is kinda cute and I definitely get the sci-fi vibe from him too. Maybe a bit of Dr. Who? LOL Hugs! Dawn!

Both cards are wonderful, Dawn! The mermaid is sooo pretty! And the robot is cute as all get out! Love the papers you put with him, too!
Big hugs,

Your title made me hope for a robot mermaid, but these are both fabulous.

I love, Love, LOVE that Octopode robot. He's very 50's sci-fi retro.

Great cards. Great coloring.
