Today I have another card that I made using Paper Smooches Botanicals 2. 
I tried to color some white embossing. 
I die cut the "Hello" sentiment from another embossing effort that was going in the trash.
I am entering this card into the Paper Smooches challenge.

Sand Sunburn It's Over

I am not ready to go back to school tomorrow!
If fact I have not really felt that sand between my toes at the beach!
However, I do love this darling image F552 Beachy Penguins.
I paired it with the E800 Happiness Is...
I used some dies to made a notched card.

I finally got to make a card based on the inspiration I had at Stretch Your Stamps 2, an online card class.  
For this card I masked the botanical flowers from Paper Smooches. I had a couple of boo boos that I threw in the trash. 
Then I said, hey, wait a minute I spent a lot of time goofing up on those, so I dug them out of the trash. 
I used one for the "thanks" die cut. 
I must say I am very pleased with the final project!

Hello Friend

I was in the mood to do a little copic coloring so I stamped this adorable MFT PI Back to School stamp. 
I think I also have going back to school on my mind! 
Oh well. 
I had some new paper Fine and Dandy and thought I would give everything a whirl! 
I followed the weekly sketch 189 below:

Sensational Sunday

Last Sunday was my daughter's baby shower. 
I actually wanted to use this set last week, but somehow time got away from me. 
I stamped the elephant from MFT Beautiful Baby with sno cone blue ink. 
I used the coordinating die
Then I also created the background with the Square Grid Cover Up die.  
I followed the MFT weekly sketch below:

Happy Birthday

Absolutely love this month's release from Great Impressions.
I had so much fun coloring this G504 Birthday bike with copics.
I used some glossy accents for the balloons.
Then I added the B240 Sweet Happy Birthday sentiment in red ink.
