Happy Everything!

Hello Everyone! How is your week goin' for ya? Busy, busy for me this week--lots of projects to get done, new stamp releases, and some fun stuff with friends! I'm leaving on Saturday for a week in New York (Buffalo area) with my son & mom to visit my grandma! A week of just visiting & nothing else--definitely a bit of downtime for sure. My uncle will take Riley fishing & out on his 4-wheeler, so that will keep him occupied. My son loves the slow pace of country life--he could definitely be a farm boy!! So anywho, I've got lots to finish up before I leave including finishing laundry & other errands so my hubby can survive a whole week w/o me, LOL!

**Yummy Elisabeth Bell BLOG CANDY details are up on the store blog!! Check it out!
**The NEW Elisabeth Bell for SCACD stamps will be available for purchase this FRIDAY!!
**The DT (Susana's Custom Art & Card Design) will be having a BLOG HOP on Thursday to reveal the new Elisabeth Bell stamps!!

Today is Try It Out Tuesday #27 for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design (SCACD) and I challenged the DT with a sketch this week! Make sure & stop by the store blog "Follow Your Heart" to check out the sketch & join in and to see the rest of the DT's fabulous projects!

For my card I used Pink Cat Studio's "Lily at the Beach"(Susana has most of Pink Cat stamps in stock)--I just adore this cute image of Lily on top of the turtle! The speckled background behind Lily was done by spraying 2 colors of Shimmerz Spritz (olive branch & cotton candy) onto white cs--a fun & easy technique. The turtle shell has diamond glaze on it and I stacked buttons on top of Primas & tied them off with some lavendar Scrapper's Floss. The sentiment is from a Melissa Frances sentiment set and the dp is My Mind's Eye "Penny Lane". Isn't she a cutie-pie?

Second card uses a brand-spankin' new stamp from Lockhart Stamp Co. called "Rocking Chair"--this has to be my favorite in this line of her "chair" stamps. I love the summertime feel & quilt thrown over the back--so country & vintage! I paired it up with this fabulous dp from Basic Grey's "June Bug"--love the vintage feel of these papers. I cut the ends of my cs with my Nestabilities Labels 1 for a different look. I added some diamond glaze to the apples & just a few diamond stickles to the quilt blocks. The sentiment is also from Lockhart. Just a fun summery notecard!!

So make sure and stop by Susana's store blog today to get details on the yummy Elisabeth Bell candy & to see the DT's fabulous projects today!

See ya tomorrow!
