Friends and Wine

These three characters were so much fun to color, the images from Bugaboo are some of my favorites.
In the photo the card looks a little wonky, hope it's just the way I have it on the stand!  I don't think it is quite that crooked.  Colored the images with copics,  adding Glossy Accents to the wine glasses, and the bottles.  The DP is from My Momenta.  The sentiment is from Bugaboo.
My golfing group is having a party tomorrow for one of the group, Ann.  When we go out for dinner, there are usually three or more of the girls that share a liter of wine, and Ann is one of them, so this card seemed to be just right for the occasion.
I won't be at the party, my hubbys last fall left him very unsteady, even with his walker.  He will be going to physio 3 times a week for the next couple of weeks, so I will be home a lot until he improves.  Maybe I will have time to make more cards!

Hot Hot Days of Summer

These wonderful images are from Digi Stamps 4 Joy, by Jen Lee.  This card is for challenge #46, all about the weather where we live!  We have had extremely hot weather for a month or more, with no rain.  The last few days the temperature was more moderate, but to-day was extremely hot again.  We finally got a downpour of rain to-day,  but it is still hot!  The images were colored with copics, the one on the left is Bikini Becky, and the other is Barbecue Barbz; you can buy them both in the Digi Stamps for Joy Store.  The sentiment and the large sun are from my stash.  I colored the sand with copics, and the sky I used a brush and Ranger Distress Ink, tumbled glass.

This is rather last minute as I had company all week and my husband fell again, but this time no broken bones, but I did have to take him to the hospital emerge to be checked out.  Hopefully he will be feeling better in a few days.

TLC Happy Anniversary

This very pretty Happy Anniversary image is from TLC Creations.  I used copics to color the image.  The DP is from Paper Boutique for Scrapbooking.  I stamped small butterflies at the top, the stamp was from Stampin Up.  Added the cover to an off white card.  - A pretty image to color!

Have grandchildren here again this week, so just pop in and out on my computer when I can get a few minutes.  I really do enjoy them, they grow up so fast and then you don't see them as often, but when they stay for a weeks visit you get to know them pretty well.

Alone TIme

This digital image is from Bugaboo!  I made the card for one of my cardplaying girlfriends 75th birthday.  I hosted cards at my house on Thursday, I had made this card on Wednesday.  Anyway, she really loved the card as it reminded her of her grandmother.  When my friend was little her grandmother used to tell her she had dish diahrea, because everytime dishes were being done she had to go to the bathroom.   The image was colored with copics, added some silver pen to the faucet and the silverware and some Glossy Accents to the soap bubbles.  The DP was from My Minds Eye and I added some black Peel Offs around the DP.  The sentiment was also from Bugaboo!

Flowers In Her Hair

This digital image was designed by Jen Lee for Digi Stamps 4 Joy.  Challenge #45 at Digi Stamps 4 Joy is to use Black and white + one other color.  Usually, when making this type of card, I choose red, but just to be different this time - I went for orange!  I think she is so sweet!  Colored her with copics.  Added a Card stock circle of orange, cs scalloped circle which I edged in black, so that it would show up.  Added some black gems from Jolee's.  Used a corner punch on black paper (the punch has no name on it) and then mounted the card behind the corner pieces.

Charlotte Sassy

This very pretty image is from Sassy Studio, it was a free image to celebrate 700 members on Paper Craft Plantet and to start a Progressive relay of four images.  You had to use each image before you got the next one.  My intentions were good but with all my husbands appointments since he returned home, I did not have time to make a card.  So the first chance I got was for my daughter-in- laws birthday.  I colored her with copics, cut out her dress, added silver glitter to a piece of transparency and sealed the glitter between the layers.  The designer paper is from K&Company, the flowers and embellishments from my stash and the sentiment from Peel Offs. (The glare is from the transparency.)
