Is there such a thing as summer blah's??? I think I have them. Either that, or I am still exhausted from grandchildren! I did this easel card to fit as many challenges as I could, how lazy is that? One bright spot, I got to use my new Cheery Lynn die, but are they ever intricate! For movie buffs out there, I saw "The Help" and I have one word, OUTSTANDING! Definitely Oscar worthy performances. I also went to a play this week, so maybe I'm just tired from socializing, hahaha! So here is my little Maggie, and she is being entered into the following:

Almost there~~~~

Ahhh, Wednesday, middle of the week! When I was a working "girrrrrl" I used to love it, because I only had two more days, and then.....the weekend! Now that I'm retired, every day is a Friday! Hmmm, enough of that~~This is my "LOTV" entry for their challenge (roses). Who made up that silly rule of pink/red clashing? I love them together actually! It's colored in copics on Cryogen, and the DP was from my stash, which is growing soooo big! I used flowers from Michael's, and stickles plus embossing w/cuttlebug folder to finish it off.
Hope you all have a great week, FL is in the rainy season (yes, believe it or not!) and so I'm taking full advantage of it!

Good morning! I hope everyone is having a relaxing Sunday! I am!!!! I colored this image up and it just made me giggle! I love Ai stamps, so of course I am submitting this in their monthly challenge. The theme is hot, and what's hotter than these gorgeous girlies! I made a "Z" fold card, and then turned it on it's side~~great idea, but I won't be finding an envelope that fits anytime soon!

Vacation's over!

Well, I'm back! I am going to say I was on vacation, but I've been w/four grandchildren ages 17-3, so some might question my sanity calling it that! I loved every moment of it! I did not color though, and boy I am ready to get back into the swing of things! Today I am using a stamp by Impression/Obsession. (#H1741) It's pretty detailed, but no matter how many pictures I took, it did not do it justice. I colored it w/copics, some stickles and a Sizzix die cut. The fold is from SCS, called "recessed window." When I finally stopped being a dunce and actually got the measurements right it was fairly easy. I took it a step further and made it into a tent card....just a suggestion. The tag is from HOTP~~Hope you're having a great weekend, I am ready to start another for LOTV challenge, gotta catch up!
