A Day At The Beach

Good morning!  Well, it's Friday, and another weekend is almost upon us.  I for one, am thrilled about that!!  This is what I'd like to be doing this weekend.  It won't happen, but a girl can dream, right?  This is the first easel card I've made on my own, and now I understand why these are so popular.  They're surprisingly easy and lots of fun to make.  For this card I used the Baby Boy on the Beach image from The Stamping Boutique.  Of course I colored this with Copics, and I used patterned paper from DCWV that was a gift from my sweet stamping sister, Paola.  With all the shells surrounding this little boy, I kept thinking about pearls, so pearl embellishments it was.  I originally prepared this card for The Sew Many Challenges Blog, but there was a little mix up in the challenge details.  Their challenge is to create a Father's Day card and not use the color blue.  Well, obviously I didn't get that memo, but I created a card, nonetheless.  It would still be fun to play along with the Sew Many Challenges Blog, and that's exactly what I think I'll do.  :) 

Have you heard that The Stamping Boutique is sponsoring a brand new challenge?  Yep, they sure are!!  Their new challenge will run an entire month, and you can enter as many times as you want.  All you have to do is upload your creations using The Stamping Boutique images to their challenge blog, to be in the drawing for a chance to win a fabulous prize each time you enter.  Now, I ask you... Does it get any easier than that?  I don't think so!  We want to see what you're doing with TSB images, so I invite you to do some happy stamping and play along today!

Thanks so much for dropping by today.  Have a blessed day, and a beeeeaaaauuutiful weekend!!

Love ya,

Wow, your colouring is fantastic! I love the shading and all the little pearls you added to the card. Aren't easel cards fun? I recently made my first and loved it!
