Hello & a very Happy Tuesday to all my friends out there! Oh, boy the weather here in the VA area has been glorious since last week--I'm enjoying it so much. Unfortunately, my son is not so much--the pollen is high and his asthma is not good right now. He had a really bad attack on Easter evening--but I won't elaborate cuz' he hates any "health reports" about him on my blog, LOL--but I'm hoping his meds kick in and help more! I hope you all had a wonderful celebration of Easter/Spring too! Tonight I took a late evening walk with hubby & the dogs and it's just so enjoyable to be outside, warm but no humidity--doesn't get better than that! We had a lovely Easter with my side of the family, although I forgot to take any pics--can you believe it, lol?! Oy vey I say! But I did get some pics at the Cherry Blossoms in DC on Friday--me and Riley met my hubby downtown and walked around the tidal basin and had some fun (Alexa was hangin' with frenz--she was too cool to hang with us, lol)! You can see the slideshow at the bottom of this post if you'd like! Washington, DC is never more beautiful than when the Cherry Blossoms are in bloom and the weather is sunny--it's gorgeous!

Today is Tuesday so that means it's a Try It Out Tuesday #62 for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design! It's been awhile since I've been able to participate in this challenge with everything I've been trying to get done. I've still got a lot to do, but I'm slowly getting the to-do list under control more, lol! I haven't pulled out one of these beautiful fairies from Faerie Art Song--and I thought today's challenge would be fitting. It's called "Tulips-a-Bloom", use tulip colors on your cards (yellow, red, violet, hot pinks, green)!
"Serena & Risa"--although in my mind I call it the mom & daughter fairies, heehee--so pretty! I've colored them with Copics and I used some of that wonderful Basic Grey paper called "Green at Heart"--so pretty! And of course I added some Prima mini-roses with leaves and swirls. The border is a punch from MS--love this border punch and then I've added some pearls to finish it off.
Creative Inspiration Shimmer Paints (pixie dust, light purple) then I stamped a second set of wings onto a transparency with Staz-On ink. To make them pop up, I cut slits onto the stamped image with my craft knife, added tabs to the transparency wings and slid them thru the slits. To make them sparkle even more they got a thick coat of Viva Decor Holographic Glitter Liner (10x sparklier than the Stickles I tell ya)!
Now make sure and stop by the Store Blog HERE to see the rest of the DT's fabulous projects and see our two newest designers Heather & Kim as well!
