Hello Hearts!!

Hiya Happy Monday Stampers!! Hope you all had a brilliant & fabulous weekend! The weather has been perfect here although we could use a bit of rain, grass is starting to dry out. I've got about 3,000 tomatoes out in my garden due to the size of my 5 tomato plants (over 4 feet tall they are)!! I've been having a tomato, mayo & swiss cheese sandwich everyday--yummy! Made some fresh salsa yesterday too & delivered tomatoess to all the neighbors since they're coming out of our ears, hee hee! And the Billy Joel/Elton John concert on Saturday nite was FANTASTIC!! They really rocked the house & everyone was up outta their seats dancin'! They are fantastic singers & piano players for sure--they sound fabulous live I tell ya. It was really alot of fun!

**New Copic Videos & Creating Sky/Clouds videos now up on sidebar (links below too)
** Whiff of Joy--pre-orders for the new Fall Stamp Kit by Elisabeth Bell will be up for order this Friday, July 17th! (click on link to see sneak-peek)

***And don't forget to stop by the All That Scraps blog today to see the projects I made over there too!! **

Today I have a happy hello card for you using Magnolia stamps from Magnolia-licious (I don't see then on the store site, but if you lovee them ask Diana to order them for you)! I colored this tree (you can see the copic video on how to color tree & do sky backgrounds on sidebar) and cutie-pie Fall Tilda who I think looks summery dressed in such soft colors! The dp is from the new Basic Grey "Lemonade"(colored her bandana & pocket to match the dp) and I added lime green stickles to the tree leaves. The sentiment is from PTI's "Vintage Picnic Sentiments" that I bent on my acrylic block to follow the curves of the tree. I added some fun Prima flowers & a little butterfly punch-out that I embellished to finish it off. I love the happy vibe this card gives--whaddda 'bout you?

The links to my new Copic Tutorial Video's are up on my sidebar & below:

    How awesome that you got to see Elton and Billy perform together, I saw Billy Joel in concert a couple of years ago, and he is just great at the piano and a wonderful entertainer. I can imagine how awesome that concert was! I hope to see them perform together someday too!
