Happy Friday, peeps! I am finally back to blogging...at least for today, anyway! I was so excited when Bonnie & Loll from CAS Watercolour told me this card had won their April challenge and asked me to be their guest designer for June! You betcha!
Their theme is "summer" and I knew just which stamp I wanted to use! Here we go:
This sweet little row of beach babies is from 100 Proof Press; not sure if it's still available or not. I stamped it in Stazon on SU's watercolor paper and colored it in with an aquapainter and inks. I added a couple little seagulls with a Sahara Sand marker and a sentiment from Impression Obsession. Aren't they cute:
I love their wee little sunburned cheeks! I mounted the completed image on a Soft Sky card base and will save it for someone's special occasion....just haven't decided which one yet! I hope that you'll share your summery CAS watercolour creations with us at CAS Watercolour too!
Here is what we have accomplished on the kitchen reno so far!!! This is looking into my new kitchen....sliding glass door on the right (you'll have to use your imagination!). The original outside wall was stripped of its drywall, a new beam put in, and the old studs cut out. That's my BIL, Jimmy! He and his son Timmy are awesome carpenters!
Now if you do a 180 degree turn, this is the living room...we did the same thing to that wall, putting up a new beam and pulling out the old wall. John spent the whole weekend taking down the drywall...and every item in my house is covered with dust, LOL! But now we have one big room!! Still lots and lots and lots of work to do. I went shopping for kitchen cabinets on Wednesday---totally overwhelming.
I helped dispose of the drywall and fiberglas insulation...I look like I am ready for surgery...and you can see Dr John behind me, operating on the drywall before it all came down!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
