Just Hanging around with my friend Rex….

Just haning around with my dog Rex

Memories, Oh how this brings back so many memories! Can you believe summer is almost over? The kids go back to school next week, already. That is what the theme is for this fortnightly challenge at “Cards for Men” is Long Summer days and the sponsor is Phindy’s Place digi stamps. Phindy's Place digi stamps

This is one of her images and I just love it, it is called “Just hanging”, please stop by and check out some of her images she has some wonderful one to choose from. You can click right here. The challenge starts August 30, 2010 and ends September 12, 2010. DO NOT forget to download your card to “Cards for Men Blog”. So you have a chance to win some of Phindy’s images.Just hanging around with my dog copic markers

These are the copic I used to color my image. I really did not do a lot to the card, added some doggie embellishments and green ribbon. Layered by card stock and that is about it. Her images was so easy to work with.

Phindy was a really sweet person and she sent up several images, I like then so much I did another one.

Me and My Dad

Me and my Dad

What can I say, I just love it. I’m sure if you come by my blog you know I love doing images like this one, so what can I say. That little boy looks so happy and proud of his Dad for spending the time with him. Do you think so? Me and my Dad left

I added a bottle of sunscreen and a couple soda’s so they would have something to drink. I think that is the mom in me. The bird is a sticker, thought he would be fun. My clouds I made out of felt. You can get felt with sticky on the back so I cut some out that look like clouds and placed then in the sky. What you think, do they look ok?Me and my Dad right

On this side you can see the stickers better, the fish and I think they are star fish are foam stickers. On the bottom is some anchors in different colors, they were buttons. The little boat was a button also.Me and my dad markers

These of course are the copic markers I used to color, Me and my Dad. Remember both of these images are from Phindy’s Place so if you would like to see more stop by and check out her images.

As always I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I was not feeling to well but doing ok now. As always I wish you to have a wonderful week that will bring you all kinds of inspiration in creating new and wonderful cards.

I had a person email me and ask me “How do I come up with so many different creations? She had spent some time looking at my cards and could not believe all the different kinds of cards I have done. I tell you that was one of the hardest question I had to try and answer, I told her and I’m sure it was no help at all… I sit down with my images or stamp and I take a good look at it and I start to get out my colors, as I’m coloring ideas start to come into my head and I start thinking about paper, embellishments, thing I have that will work with what I’m doing. This is really hard, I can say I have NOT put to many cards in the garbage because I could not get them to work. I really have no idea. Just let you creative juices flow!

Happy Creating Everyone!!!!
