Summer Dreams

Happy Wednesday,

Hope everyone has had a great week so far. It's been kind of a busy week so far. Hey but it's a long weekend for most people in the US. Happy 4th of July everyone.

Well I found another digi stamp company that I am really liking their images. Make it Crafty, they are celebrating their 1 year anniversary. Happy Anniversary Make it Crafty. I came across this from a blog that I follow that had mentioned the anniversary and that they were having a sale on digi stamps. Well hello, I am there. LOL. Boy was I in shopping heaven. They have some great images as well as buying them in collections to make scenes with them.

So while I was on their blog reading about their anniversary celebration there was a spot to sign up for the newsletter for their digi stamps. Ok, so signed up. Well I was bad (but worked out to be good) I didn't read everything including the part that told you that if you sign up they will need you one of their newest images Zoe Celebrates. Well you can image how excited I was getting another image and one that I had thought about purchasing. LOL. So if you haven't already, take a look at their blog and store. Oh and don't forget to sign up for the newsletter.

Now on to my card. This card is for the challenge over at the CMC site. The challenge is coloring folds, pleats and/or ruffles. I thought this image fit the bill perfectly. Her dress has some fold/pleats and don't you just love the way the artist has drawn the hair.

I have colored her with copics. The DP is by K and Company Sweet Nectar collection.

A couple of swirls were cut with my Slice and coated with Stardust Stickles.
I added some Iridescent Metallic Cord that I purchased from Stamp By Step 10 yard for 59 cents I didn't think that was bad at all. She has gold and silver too.

Well I really had fun making this card. I can't wait to try my other Make it Crafty images. So watch out. LOL I think I wrote a book today. Don't forget to be sure and stop by Make it Crafty and sign up for the newsletter. If you like to color hair you will love the image that they send you.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a good day.
