I know that we have all been looking forward to this weekend.
The kids have a long weekend, the weather is supposed to be really nice and we will be able to spend some extra time with our family members sharing smiles, having cookouts, and just relaxing.
My weekend is sort of a forced relaxation period spent at home though.
I couldn't leave the house if I wanted to!!!
It is Black Bike Week here and they are expecting over 500,000 bikers... and I live less than a mile from it all. My (policeman) husband works all weekend...
so we are REALLY looking forward to the weekend's end, lol!!!
Enough of my chattering...
I have a fun card to share with you.
Since summer is just around the corner, and I am reallllly SO VERY ready for it,
I decided to break out my summer stamps!
*BOTH CURRENTLY ON SALE!*
I used this photo
found at Inspired By to create this card:
I even got the coke bottle in there :D See it in her beach bag?
While at AC Moore yesterday I spotted a new product. Well, new to our area. I have seen it before online. They had some spectrum noir markers on sale for just under $8 for a set of 6. I purchased a red, brown and turquoise set to try them out .. and I used a coupon for the crafters companion smooth cardstock. I can't really give an HONEST review at the moment. I like the colors. They seemed to color well. My lightest turquoise seemed to be dried out, so I am going to return those for another set. For the price, I think they were worth it. The cardstock seemed to bleed a little easier than the PTI that I normally use. Probably because the PTI soaks the color in, and this one is smooth and lets it flow. I will have to use it a few more times to get a feel for it, then I will let you know what I REALLY think ;)
I colored this image using the spectrum noir browns for her hair and accessories, all of the red, and the turquoise bag. The sand and sky were colored using prismacolor markers and her skin was colored using copics. I added smooch to add shimmer on the waves, towel, and sunglasses. The 'coke' bottle was created using glossy accents. The yellow was all glammed up by adding yellow stickles.
Fresh Brewed Designs is currently having a RUBBER STAMP SALE!
