Anchors Away!

Hi everyone--hope your week is going great for ya!  Still enjoying the wonderful, warm weather--hope to get outside for a jog today.  Gotta get my bum in gear and get back into working out regularly and eating right.  While I was getting these businesses/websites up off the ground I really let everything sllllllllllllide, ya know!  Well summer means less clothes so I gotta get the flab off, hee hee, especially before I leave for our summer vacation at the end of June.  We've rented a house for 2 weeks at Hilton Head again this year--I'm counting down the days and ready for some summer sun and fun!  Are you all ready for summer--if so what plans do YOU have for summertime?!!

In that same breath, I've got some summer fun projects to share with you!

PS--winner of my Blog Candy to be announced tomorrow, sorry I forgot, lol!


*****************************************************
Anchors Away, 2 Ways!!

I've had these couple of fun Magnolia stamps from Magnolia-licious for awhile now & they were still in their packaging (gasp)!  I had to pull them out & get them inky cuz' they're sooo cute!  This one is called "Boat Tilda" and she's sittin' on a Magnolia pier fence although I couldn't find it at the store (but I'm sure if you email Diana she can get some in)--I believe it's from the Lazy Summer Days Collection as well. 

I wanted to create a patriotic summertime feel so I pulled out some of my scrap paper that I had (not sure who by?) and cut it into strips and attached it to my white cardstock.  Ran my white cs thru the Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" folder for some extra texture.  The star punches are from SU and then I attached some little glass stars I had in my stash.  That fun sentiment (perfect 'eh) is from the PTI set "Out to Sea"--great set to have I tell ya!  Fun for any special lil' sailor in your life!



The images are colored with Copics and then I've added some Diamond Glaze onto the lifesaver floatie and her lil' white shoes for some shine.  The sea and her shirt got some stardust stickles for some bling!

So I had so much fun with the first, I decided to just use the background stamp for a separate card!  This time I didn't use any dp, just the same colored cs for this card.  The navy cs got embossed with a CB folder from the "asian collection" folders which I LOVE!  The I added some twine, buttons and SU corner punches to create some nautical fun (the white dots are with my Sharpie Poster Paint pen)!  The sentiment is from the same PTI set that I used above.  This card would be great for anyone in your life--equally feminine & masculine!

That's all for me today--see ya back here tomorrow!
