Yum! Makes me want to go swimming and eat a big piece of watermelon in the pool!! I had just seen some MME papers that reminded me of this background, so I went to work making this simple card:
This features the Cardabilities sketch #77:
I used several SU DPs for my banners, and the stamped one is from Modern Mosaic. The little bird is from Everything Eleanor, the sentiment is from Papertrey, and the watermelon is from Unity.
There are lots of fun possibilities with these bright summery colors! Can’t wait to see what you do with these shades! Share them with us at the ColourQ blog, and check out what the other designers came up with as well!
Wonder what she’s thinking?
I whipped this up in a jiffy:
Some pretty MME Lost & Found Christmas papers and my favorite Crafty Secrets Santa made an easy-peasy card!
The sentiment was already printed on the paper, and I found a little piece of double-sided satin ribbon that matched perfectly! Another card for my stash! I hope you’ll play along too so you can add another card to your stash! Check out what the other designers created with this sketch at Lesley’s blog, Always Playing with Paper! You’ll be glad you did!
Cassidy walked in the yard after it was just cut, and wanted her feet washed off, so I had a watering can with some water in and I told her I would sprinkle her feet. “I do it myself”, she said:
She finally got it!!!
And then, of course, she had to walk in the puddle!!!! So much for clean feet!
Hey peeps! Another quick post as I wanted to get this card in for the beautiful Play Date Café challenge:
My sweet friend Athena is celebrating a birthday this week, so this is for her:
Check out the sparkle:
And truer words were never spoken about her!!!
Now off to see my dad for Father’s Day---any questions, pop me an email!
Woohoo! Anyone who knows Anne Marie knows she likes BLING! I have had these square-cut gems in my bling thing drawer forEVER! I was so excited that I would have a chance to use them:
I first chose my colors of Pink Passion, Pink Pirouette, Pool Party and Soft Sky to match my gems. I stamped a mosaic from Mosaic Madness in each color and then tried to figure out how to achieve a pleasing layout. Nothing was appealing to me, so I decided to emboss what I call the “snowflake” border from the Delicate Designs set, and what do you know…the mosaics fit perfectly! Usually I do white for CAS designs, but I thought the Soft Sky cardstock really looked pretty with these jewel tones!
I added a simple sentiment from Fabulous Phrases and my CAS creation was done! I hope you’ll take a few minutes to play with the Paper Players this week and share your clean and simple blingy creation! Can’t wait to see it! And while you’re there, be sure to check out what gorgeous creations the other designers have made as well!
At different times both John & I noticed a young catbird that hopped around our yard and did not fly away when we got near. We finally determined that it has a damaged wing! Cassidy loves to try to “catch” birds, so this one was about her speed:
She actually managed to get pretty close to it, then it scooted under some bushes!
Try as we might, it was pretty well hidden and we couldn’t find it!
