The students will arrive at 8:45 and depart at 10:00-silly, huh? I have some work to finish and then we have a brunch. The rumor is that we don't have to return to school after brunch! This is the card that I made for my friend, Eileen, whose son I wrote about the other day. This is our last day of working together in the same room. The inside sentiment is, "You make me smile". I picked that one because I don't want to cry! It'll be tough!
Anyway, I love this summer Tilda! She also looks great on the dock, but I had this oval already to go so she's on a bench at the pool! I hope she doesn't get splinters! I was hoarding that red polka dot brad, but it seems perfect for Eileen's card! Do you think so? Here's where I got my stamp- Magnolia-licious! Hope you can check it out!
I have so many summer goals, but for today the objective is to finish my room at school!
What are your summer goals? Cleaning? More stamping and posts?
I thank you so much for visiting my blog! And I thank you so much if you take the time to comment! Big hugs to ya'!

She has a number of great digital sets available for really great prices! I print mine out on Neenah Solar White classic crest and color them with my copic markers! No running or bleeding! They color beautifully!
This small box is for a friend of mine. I'm giving it to her with a Bath and Body gift card tucked inside! Shhhh! Don't tell!
I used Baja Breeze to make the box and My Mind's Eye dp. Of course, I used my Nestabilities and did some extra doodling on the edges. The ribbon is from Papertrey Ink.

For my card I used a base of Blush blossom, a layer of Soft Sky and then the beautiful plaid paper from Graphic 45. It's called Baby and Bride. I colored this image from Alphabet Train and used a tag from Pierced Tags by Judi. I print the images from the files I downloaded with ease on Neenah classic crest solar white paper. It's colored with my copic markers and then cut with a nestability die.
The satin ribbon is from Papertrey Ink. I used two markers of each color this time instead of the usual 3 or 4 or 5 or.....
The colors are: E31, and E33, E93 and R22, BG10 and BG72, G20 and G21.
After me, please head over to Sparkle Smith's Blog, Sparkle's Creations to see more of Judi's images! Tow of the designers are giving blog Candy, but you'll have to travel around to see who!
Thanks for stopping by today! Hop on!

After I colored my image and cut it with the circle nestability, I left it in the die and use a 1 inch stencil brush in Adirondack Butterscotch for the area around the bucket. I was too lazy to make a mask so I just tried to keep the color on the edge. I used C1 and C3 around the image itself when I colored it. It kinda looks green with the addition of the yellow.

I've colored her with my copics and cut her out. I just cut off the antennae and then redrew them when I mounted her on the Nestability. I didn't use dimensionals, just mounted her flat.
I'm so sorry for the unclear image! I don't know what was up with my camera that day!
We're off for a trip with the second graders to the Buffalo Zoo today! Yeah! Should be a fun day-hope the weather holds out!
Hope your day includes something WILD too!

After that, I printed out one copy of Simply Flowers onto Neenah Classic Crest, solar White card stock and one copy of Pierced Tags on the same card stock. The neat thing when you buy digital images is that they are on your computer as long as you want them! I could have printed out more so I could use some of the same flower.

Here's my project made from a design by Bridgett Owens! It's for a note pad holder and a little box to match! What a cute little gift! You can find her tutorial HERE! I used Cosmos Cricket L'il Man and My Minds Eye Bloom and Grow on mine. I just love Orange and Aqua. My box is made from Kraft, such a great neutral color. The image is Spring Tilda and the flower is also from Magnolia-licious.
I used Stampin' Up ribbon for the handle. It looks like the box is lined but it isn't. I just added a piece of dp around the edge to cover the ribbon ends for a more finished look. Images are colored with copic markers, of course!

Well, now I can tell you that I am so honored to have been asked to participate in the Copic Creations Challenge!
This wonderful group of women chooses a copic technique twice each month (the first and fifteenth). "Lessons" are showcased on the blog and best of all, YOU are invited to participate to win a prize!
Want all the details and to see these great designers' cards?
Here's the Copic Creations Challenge Blog!
My clear item is his pink lemonade glass. I used a R83, RV32, and RV14 to color his glass. Then I added stickles on top of that.
This was my first CC challenge so I decided to try something new for me. I mounted him on the outside of a Clear Acetate card. On the INSIDE behind him, I glued to background. The I used Purely Pomegranate (stamped with my Plaid bg from All that Scraps) on the back part of the card where we place our sentiments. I'd show that to you, but I stamped it crooked, so I have to come up with Plan B to fix it!
It was tough to photo without glare, and as you can see, I gave up! There is another view on the CC blog.
So please head there to see the other cards and directions for entering your masterpiece!
I hope it's Clearly Summer where you are today!
