A Day at the Beach

Hello - I hope you had a wonderful weekend - once again we had mostly rain all weekend long - the long range forecast is for a very hot July so I guess it is good that we are getting lots of rain now so we shouldn't run into a water shortage as we have in many summers past.  I made this card over the weekend using adorable Tilda from Magnolia.  I forgot that I had bought the cute seagull last year again from Magnolia and I knew he would fit perfectly for this card.  I colored the image with my copic markers and made the background and colored it in with my copic markers as well.  The paper is from Little Yellow Bicycle - Splash - 6 x 6 paper pad - I loved the blue flowery paper that I used for the background - I basically built the card around that paper as I liked it that much.  I added a border on the top of the image and a punched out flower on the upper left side.  The orange flags are from Memory Box.  The Sentiment is from C.C. Designs.  Thanks for stopping by for a visit and I hope you have a wonderful week.

My Favorite Pastime

Hello - my how time flys by it has been a while since my last post I noticed.  We have been having so much rain that I decided to make a sunshiney type card and maybe the sun would start to shine - so far no luck - lol!!  This card did cheer me up though - I love the bright fun colors in the paper which is from Bo Bunny Hello Sunshine Collection 6 x 6 paper pad (love those 6 x 6 paper pads -perfect for card making).  My favorite pastime is taking my dog for a nice long walk so when I saw this stamp by Your Next Stamp I knew I had to have this one as well.  I colored her with copic markers and paper pieced her clothing.  The fence is a Magnolia die cut, the grass is Fiskars die cut and the clouds are from Memory Box.  I added a few flowers along the fence line also from Memory Box.  I added a bit of bling and that pretty much finished off the card.
I hope you have a wonderful day whereever you may be and thanks for stopping by to visit my blog.

Mermaid Tilda

Hello everyone - it has been a while since my last post - we were away last weekend to visit our daughter and whenever I am away for a weekend it really sets me behind with all my housework - finally today I was able to get caught up and spend time in my craftroom.  I made this card using the new adorable Tilda mermaid from Magnolia's latest release.  All the paper I used is from Echo Park Paper Co. called Paradise Beach.  I wasn't too sure about the color combination but it seemed to turn out okay.  I colored Tilda with my copic markers but didn't keep track of the colors once again.  I used my Sizzix die to cut out the frame around the main image and my Sizzix Sizzlit die for the brown branches.  I added a few pearl colored flowerettes to the branches.  I used sand on the bottom part of the card and added some sparkle to the mermaid fin and used gold and orange spica pens for parts of the seahorse. I added the wave she is sitting on by cutting it out of another Magnolia image. The sentiment is cut out from the design paper.  I really enjoyed making this card and thanks for stopping by for a visit.  We had a whole week of pretty much continuous rain and my poor tomatoe plants did not survive - I will have to replace all of them except for one plant which I think will make it - the rest of my garden seems to be okay, thankfully - today was our first day of sunshine in almost a week.  I hope you have a sunshiny week whereever you may be.
