Hiya friends and happy Tuesday to you all! Did you all have a fabulous 3 day weekend if you celebrated Memorial Day here in the US? The weather was absolutely perfect-o here in Virginia all weekend and we spent most of it outside. We had a neighbors barbecue on Saturday and we didn’t get home until 1:30 am, LOL (good thing we live next door). And then on Sunday we had our own barbecue/open house with family and friends which was a lot of fun and we spent it in our backyard. Then that evening our neighborhood hosts free concerts in the park so we headed down there with Alexa and her friend for a bit and listened to the great cover band. The kids had friends over all weekend so I will be grocery shopping today to fill the fridge back up, LOL---they eat A LOT!!! Then yesterday we headed to the pool for a bit and then ate some MD Blue Crabs for dinner—YUM! So it was really a great and relaxing weekend—very enjoyable and perfect! I have lots to do this week including band concerts, girls night out (err in my backyard, lol) and then I leave for North Carolina on Friday to teach. Gotta stay focused and on schedule so I can get all my stuff’s done
-New class at the CMC Classroom---Prisma Pencils 2 by my friend Marti is now going, see HERE and hover over the Class Info tab at the top! Invites will be sent out today to those that have already registered!
Today I get to share a fun and cheery project with you featuring one of the fabulous NEW stamp sets by Gina K called “Birthday Bash”. If you LOVE to color adorable images then you will want this set for sure! Filled with cute stamps and sentiments, you’ll find you use this one lots! And today the DT is having a fun blog hop to showcase ways to use this new set. The blog hop list is at the bottom but your next stop after me will be Tami Mayberry!
I used some cute new papers by My Minds Eye “Lime Twist” and Gina K has quite a few colors of cardstock that match up perfectly with these fun papers! I colored the image with Copics of course and gave the bunny lots of fun texture instead of blending her out smoothly---just a different & fun look with your copics. The background behind the bunny was done with Copics in pastel colors as well—reminds me of fun party confetti. Some stardust stickles to the gift bow and bunny’s pink areas give it some fun bling. And isn’t that sentiment so much fun? I love it and blinged it up with some pearls too. The double bow was done with my Bow Easy and then I added some fun swirls from my Marianne Designs dies. A fun and cute card for a birthday gal in your life!
