All Things Nice and Girly

Oh is it ever hot here. This makes about the 24th day straight to hit 100 or more. It just makes you lazy and not want to do anything especially go outside.

This is another little cutie from The Emerald Faerie Garden. This is Kayla and Twinkie. I have colored them with Copic Sketch markers (E00, E01, E35, E53, R20, V000, V01, V04, V06, V09, V12, V15, V17, Y21, Y23, Y26, YG03, YG06, YR02, YR09) and Copic Spica pens (Clear, Lavender, Lilac). I also used Stickles in Diamond and Star Dust. I used Spellbinder Nestabilities die cuts in Square and Lacy Square. The flower is a Marianne Designs Creatable die cut. The CS is Stampin Up and the DP is Basic Grey's Euphoria and The Paper Co. Natural with Gold Swirls. The buttons are from Oriental Trading Co. and the twine is Lilac from The Twinery. I also used the Dotted Swiss embossing folder from Cuttlebug.

There Was a Little Girl.......

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a fablous weekend. I know I am. I got to go to my favorite scrapbook store, Archiver's. I just love that store. I can always find too much that I want. It is a good thing that it is an hour away, so I don't get there too often or I would be broke.

This little digi darling is Summer by Sugar Nellie. Isn't she just adorable. I thought she fit the Stamps R Us Challenge "There Was a Little Girl" perfectly. She is not quite a little girl anymore, but growing into a young lady. I colored her with Copic Sketch markers (BG11, BG23, BG32, E01, E11, E50, E51, E53, E57, R81, R83). The CS is Stampin Up and the DP is from My Mind's Eye - Lime Twist - Happy Go Lucky. I used the Spellbinder Nestabilities Deckled Rectangle. The flowers are punches by Stampin Up and McGill. The pearls are from my stash. The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Teeny Tiny Wishes and it is inked in Stampin Up's Rich Razzleberry ink. It is punched out with two punches from Stampin Up. The ribbon/lace is some that I bought at a fabric store.

I plan to enter this card in these challenges:

So, I had to get in another card. This is a digi image from Phindy's Place. She is having a good summer day with that chocolate ice cream. I used Copic Sketch markers to color her (E00, E01, E21, E35, R20, R81, R83, R85, RV00, Y13, Y15, Y21, Y23). I used a sketch from A Gem of a Challenge. The CS is Stampin Up and the DP is from Dream Street Papers and Imaginisce Garden Party Collection. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps and is inked up with Early Expresso and punched out with a scalloped oval punch by Stampin Up. I used Craft Concepts In Bloom embossing folder and Spellbinder Nestabilities Oval and Scalloped Oval die cuts. The flowers and pearls are by Prima.

Spread Your Wings

Happy 4th of July and Happy Canada Day! I hope everyone is having a great celebration weekend. I know I am. It is quite this afternoon and I had to make a card. Summer is busy, so my cardmaking has slowed down, but I plan to get it in when I can.

This darling digi fairy is Ally from The Emerald Faerie Garden. She is so cute just sitting on the flower with her ladybug. She is colored in Copic Sketch markers (E00, E01, E35, E37, R20, R24, R27, Y06, YG23, YG25, YR02, YR04) and Copic Spica pens (Black, Lemon, Red). The CS is from Stampin Up and the DP is Basic Grey's Hello Luscious. The design is from a sketch from Magical Mondays Challenge. The ribbon is from Stampin Up and the rhinestones are from my stash. The sentiment is also from my stash, as I do not know where it came from. The flower is a die cut from Marianne Designs and I used some of the DP to make it.
