Scrappin' Tuesday!

Hiya & Happy 7/7, hee hee (July 7th that is)!! Why is that summer seems to fly by so fast yet winter can draaaggggg on & on, LOL--I just need to move where its summer all the time I think! Lazy days outside in the sun, swimming in the pool w/ the kids, walks by the creek with the dogs & picking fresh veggies from my garden--life is good! I made fresh garden salad with veggies from my garden last night and fried up the rest of the sweet corn we got from the Amish for dinner---if you haven't had fried corn you don't know whatcha' missin, one of my faves (just cut corn off the cob, add butter in the skillet & fry it up until it starts poppin'--yumo!) And yes I use fake butter now, but it tastes just as good :o) What's your favorite summertime activity?

Oh, and thanks to everyone for the sweet comments about my drawing, I really appreciate it! And you never know, they might be stamps one day.....hmmmm....you'll have to wait & see, LOL!

Today is Try It Out Tuesday#26 for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design and I've challenged the DT to create a scrapbook page using either an Anki's Sweethearts or a Victoria Case for SCACD stamp! I decided to create 2 6x6 pages to add to my very neglected album that I had started working on a year ago (2 pages for each month of the year). All the papers & ribbons are from Bo Bunny!
I decided to use Victoria Case for SCACD's "Forever Friends" to go with my buggy themed paper--isn't that just the cutest image? Cute bugs for sure! On this page the image lifts up so you can add a picture or some journaling underneath! Image was colored with Copics and I added some diamond stickles for shimmer!
Second page uses a cute lil' ladybug by Victoria Case (a freebie when you order VCase stamps from Susana's store)! Made a nice addition to this page so I can add some summertime pictures!
So make sure and stop by Susana's store blog "Follow Your Heart" to see the rest of the DT's fabulous scrapbook projects and join in on the fun too!

Second project today uses another one of the beautiful Whiff of Joy stamps from the "Women's Delight Collection"! This one is "Willow Holding Baby" and I think this image is just so lovely! Image is colored with copics & I paper-pieced the baby's blanket to match all of the Basic Grey "Wisteria" dp. I used Pixie Dust Shimmerz (next to Angel Wingz my fave Shimmerz) on her dress and spritzed the whole card with Shimmerz Spritz in baby's breath. Some pretty pearls and ribbon finish this baby card!
I decided to cut her out & pop her up on the cream Cuttlebugged background while still keeping the whole card soft & pretty! These images are just a joy to work with!

I'll see ya back here tomorrow!
