As many of you know, it was a very rough weekend for our family. We had to have our beloved cat Emerson (aka Esserman, aka Pudge) put to sleep. He had a very aggressive cancer. We miss him greatly and he will always be loved.
Rest in Peace
Emerson (April 2001 - April 29, 2011)
I have to say that I am so thankful for all of the wonderful ladies atThe Latte Lounge during my difficult time. Heather of Fresh Brewed Designs had planned for a chat on Friday night, which I looked forward to to get through my tough day. It turned out to be a lucky evening for me - I won two digis and a rubber stamp - on top of themonthly FBD challenge at The Latte Lounge that I'd won earlier that day (5 digis).
Heather gave us two challenges for the Beach party. One was a card with hot pink and sunny yellow and bling and the second was a beach themed tag. Peanut used Beach Accessories rubber stamps to make her tag. She added glitter and bling and a ribbon from the recent TLL ribbon exchange. I had bought some beach fabric confetti from the deep discount bin to use on another project, but decided I didn't need it, so we cracked into it for these projects. You can see a sheer blue seashell on Peanut's tag.
Here's my card. I combined the Beach Accessories rubber stamps from Fresh Brewed Designs with The Stamping Boutique's Summer Laundry Line. I colored the image with Copics. I tried to do a sky likeAnnika, but couldn't quite figure it out. I'll have to keep practicing. I do like the pale blue for the sky.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. ICSketches #112 - sketch (sponsored by FBD!)
2. Copic Creations #49 - sky/clouds
For the tag challenge, I went crazy with the glitter modge podge and the sea themed fabric confetti. They're very bright and sparkly. I used some new beach stickers and the Beach Accessories rubber stamps from Fresh Brewed Designs.
