Happy Wednesday everyone--hope you're staying cool! It's been in the 90's here in VA and while I like it warm, it is definitely HOT here and humid, lol! The air conditioning vent in my craftroom is NOT working, no air is coming out and I have a fan in there but it is really unbearable. I've been working on projects with sweat dripping down my face & neck--ewww--not fun!  Hope to get that fixed when we get back cuz' I can't stand it.  I'm finishing up projects so make sure to check in on my blog while I'm gone, I will have projects up almost every day for ya including releases!  I have lots of laundry to do today, lists to make and start packing and get some errands done cuz' Friday is almost here--yikes!  I so cannot wait to see the beach,sun and ocean--I'm very excited can ya tell?  LOL!


-I loaded up 45 projects to my Etsy Store (see here) so if you're interested in anything I've made the past 6 months a lot of it is up for sale.  If you purchase anything before Friday I will make sure it gets in the mail to you before I leave, purchases from Friday on will be shipped out on July 12th since I will be away.

-I have the Copic Summer Special still going on at the Color Me Creative Classroom thru June 28th!
**EXTENDED 7 more days!!  Due to a few that asked for an extension on this for 1 more week, I'm offering it until June 28th!  That is the last day to qualify for the savings--I will not have this special again until next year!!**   
Get $10 off your total if you sign up for 2 classes and get $20 if you sign up for all 4 classes---only Copic classes, not Cricut. Once you sign up & pay your monies will be refunded to you in 48 hours. This will not happen again until 2011, so if you want to learn how to use those Copics over the summer--it's a great deal! (if you need to pay by check/money order please email me separately so we can arrange that) 

-Do you love those "Humorous Senior" stamps from I Brake For Stamps as much as I do, LOL?  Well Della (owner extraordinaire) is having a FUN CONTEST to name the new release of Senior Stamp--have some fun naming them on the store blog HERE and you could win the stamp and have it named by you too!  FUN huh?!

Sunny-Flower Days!!
I used another beautiful flower image from I Brake For Stamps--this sunflower stamp is from the "Rare Image Garden Sheet" (so many beautiful images on this sheet)!  I paired this image up with some pretty papers from Paper Trey Ink (polka-dot dp) and My Mind's Eye (brown dp).  I wanted to give the image a feeling of a vintage seed packet but prettier of course :)--sunflowers just make you smile don't they?

Remember if you purchase any stamps (or digi stamps) from I Brake For Stamps or I Brake For Digi's use the coupon code "SAVE10SUZANNE" to get 10% off your entire order!

The curve on the cream cardstock was done using the edge of one of my SB Nestabilities (Mega Labels 8)--using them as borders is a cool way to use them.  The image's corner pieces were done using a corner punch and then cut into 90 degree corner pieces.  The double bow was made using my fab Bow Easy tool and the sentiment is from Paper Trey Ink.

The image was colored with copics and then accented with Stickles for some sparkle.  That fun center of the sunflower got a coat of nut brown Flower Soft so it pops and is full of texture--love it!  The edges of the image got ink distressed using my Inkssentials Foam Blending tool (use it everyday)!

Hope you enjoyed today's project and it cheered ya some!  Make sure to stop by on Friday to see the new Elisabeth Bell for SCACD release from Susana's Custom Art & Card Design--they are fabulous!
