Summer Longing!

Happy Thursday everyone! Oh how I'm longing for the warmth of summer--my bones are chilled and I'm not liking it, lol! Every year I just despise the cold more and more--I wish I could tolerate it better but I can't! So in lieu of warmer weather I decided to make some NON-HOLIDAY, cheery-colored cards! Don't get me wrong--I love the holiday cards but needed a break,lol!


So I decided to pull out a couple of my Whiff of Joy stamps that I hadn't inked up yet--GASP, I know can ya believe it!! This one here is little "Oakley in Bathtub" w/ his rubber duckie, what a cutie. (Remember if you're in the US you can order these stamps from All That Scraps now) I made this card for a friend of mine who just adopted a toddler boy after many years of trying--so I'm very happy for her! I thought this was just the perfect lil' image for her card. The sentiment is a rub-on from SU's "Chit Chat". This ultra yummy dp is from My Mind's Eye "Laundry Line"--gosh I love this paper! The ribbon is from PTI and its their new color "Ocean Tides"--lovin' this color! I added diamond glaze & stickles to the the bubbly water & of course he's colored w/ Copics.


This second card uses WOJ's Guardian Angel "Melinda Helping Angel"--isn't she a lil' beauty? I knew I wanted to use her to make thankyou/gratitude card with her. This dp is from My Mind's Eye "DayDream"--they make the best dp :) She's colored w/ Copics and I added a few stickles to her wings for sparkle. The sentiment is another rub-on from SU's "Chit Chat" set that I put on my nestability tag and threaded with twill from Taylored Expressions. Final touches are layered Primas with MM brads in the center. Whatcha' think? I likee them, but I'll be back tomorrow with some more holiday stuff for ya, hee hee!

Don't forget to visit my WOJ DT sistah Rach's blog if you haven't already. She's giving away some yummy WOJ blog candy this week. I'll see ya back here tomorrow...
