Summer Fun

Summer Fun 2012

First I want to say I’m so sorry I have been gone for awhile. I have had computer problems so I have not been able to do much but everything is all fixed now so I’m all good to go now. I sure have missed everyone. I do have a lot of emails to try and get caught up on. So I have missed last weeks challenge at The Outlawz’s Twisted Thursday but I have my card done and I will share it with you after I share this weeks challenge with you. So the twisted for this week is all about BOATS, SAILBOATS AND CANOES. The challenge starts today and ends on Wednesday August 21, 2012.

The stamps I used is from Northwood's stamps and the sentiment is from Hero Arts. Used X-Press it blending card stock. Used Memento Tuxedo black ink to stamp everything. Twine colors are orange, green and lemondrop. I found a couple of stickers for the inside and front, flip flops and the inter tube (ok help me, can’t think of what they are called)!!!

Summer Fun markers


These are the copic’s markers used to color my image. I also used Diamond glaze from Judi Kins, liquid Applique from Marvy Uchida and Glamour dust from deco art. Here is the close up and I hope you can see all the different affects.

So last week our challenge at the Outlawz was all about ribbon or lace and a birthday sentiment. This is what I created. The sentiment is a little bit of a joke around here and the images is from Squigglefly called doubled kissed. The card shape is from Spellbinders grand labels 23.

Cup of cake 2012 I sponged around with distressed ink dried marigold. Added a charm. Was some lace I already had and added some pearl in front of the lace.

As you can tell I also add just a little more pearls (ya right!) with the pearl pen color salmon.

I do hope you enjoyed my cards, it sure feels like forever since I added a card to my blog. Have a wonderful week end everyone.

Fantastic cards, Patricia. Your sailing card is awesome with that dimensional rolling sea. Very creative and that cute couple image is so sweet. I love how you colored her dress and put pearls on it. Just Fabulous! I sure did miss you, thought you went on vacation or something. So good to know your PC is back in business.

These are both gorgeous, Patricia. I love the foaming waves and the cool embellishments on the boat card. The pearls are so pretty on the 2nd card and that image is so funny. It looks like she is winding up to give the boy a good wallup.
Blessing hugs,

Great summer card for the first one. Love how you've done the waves and the flip flops and life preserver are a perfect touch. The shaped card is awesome and love the color palette you've used.
Glad you got your computer sorted!
