"You're So Sweet" - Lazy Summer Days Collection 2009

I am actually in time for a couple of challenges with this card....The Fabulous "sketch" at Friday Sketchers and the fun theme being "at the sea" at Stamp with Fun.

The stamps I have used for this card are "LZ09 Bathing Ring" - "LZ09 Beach Tilda" - "LZ09 Post Strawberry" all from Magnolia's Lazy Summers Day Collection 2009

Again I've I colored the image with copics for base, prismacolor pencils and h20's to deepen the shade and add a little sparkle. *(Please remember.....do not use copics over prismacolor pencils or the wax from the pencils will ruin your copic tips!)*

Tilda has been masked off so she could sit on the bathing ring. To create the sentiment...I also masked off the adjoining works on the You're So Sweet stamp so I could stamp them out separately...then just tore around them and inked the edges with SU Creamy Caramel ink. I used nesties for the circle and scalloped layer and attached the image circle with foam pop ups onto the scalloped layer. There is shimmerz (Angel wings) brushed on the flowers along the bottom of the image.

Ink - memento black, bashful blue, creamy caramel. Paper - GP white, basic grey "Euphoria", Michael's, bazill cs. Accessories - flowers, lace, glitter brads, shimmerz, ribbon, nesties, stitching, acrylic paint for detail dots.

Exciting News!!...Magnolia is coming out with their very own Magazine called "Magnolia Ink"!!...the first issue should be out within a few months....So keep an eye out for it!!!

Today my dear hubby and I are celebrating our Anniversary. We have been married for 36 Wonderful years!! ....So..I'm off for now....maybe for a little wine...and dine.......

Have a Lovely Day Everyone!!......and Thank you so much for all your Wonderful Comments!!
