Hey Sweet Thing

Happy Happy Saturday everyone!  We are having some wonderful weather this week/weekend with beautiful sunshine and hot temperatures.  Of course this translates into yard work, but I figure I have to get some vitamin D and I'll take hot weather any day over cold and snow!
I took a few moments this past week to sit and color just for the heck of it after the house was finally quiet...in the summer this translates into 12am, but it least quiet finally came.
This ever so sweet thing is called Watermelon Girl from Mo Manning and the sentiment from Flourishes.  Gotta love the bright cheery papers from Doodlebug.
She's been colored with primarily copics, but I tossed in a few Shinhans and some colored pencils.


Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Fussy and Fancy:  All about the girls
Sister Act:  Anything Goes
Crafty Girls:  Anything Goes
Time Out:  Fun in the Sun
Fab 'n' Funky:  Feels like Summer

Flowers for You

Oh happy happy weekend everyone!  We are having just a gorgeous sunny and warm day here in southern Colorado, and I hope wherever you are the weather is just as perfect.
Whimsy Stamps' June release is out and available!  You can find all of the wonderful new stamps and dies HERE at the Whimsy Store.  I had to contain myself and not buy all of them, but I got me some to use in a few of my upcoming classes!!!
Finally the summer flowers are beginning to bloom and bringing a little bit of color to the garden.  I thought this adorable stamp from Whimsy would be perfect!

This sweet girl is called Fistful of Flowers by Crissy Armstrong.  The sentiment and die cut are also from Whimsy from the SC clear stamp collection called Sweet as Candy
She's been colored up using some alcohol markers and colored pencils.

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you have a wonderful rest of the weekend.

CC Designs June Review

Shoot, nothing like being a day late and a dollar short! Yesterday, the CC Designs DT reviewed the too cute of stamps from Pollycraft.

Of course I'm a little biased with this stamp as she is called Shelby:)  I paired her up with Make it Crafty The Beach.  The new cutter from this release is so cool! It creates a bag and a tag all in one.  I created the open front (filled in with the finished image) by placing the tag in the center, and re-cut just the tag portion to create the separate tag.

Thanks for stopping by today and hope the rest of your week is wonderful.
