Summer Lovin'

     Do you know the Summer Lovin' song from *Grease*?!  That's the theme for our TTCRD project and you can find all the details here.
     Bugaboo is our sponsor for this challenge; winner gets 7 digi images from Bugaboo.  My card is made with Bugaboo digi *Jack and Diane* and to be honest instead of the Summer Lovin' song; playing over and over in my head was John Mellencamp's know "Little ditty about Jack and Diane, two American kids growin' up in the heartland.....oh yeah life goes on...."   Anyway, they're a cute little couple aren't they?!  I've colored the couple with Copics and the sand got a little sprinkling of Diamond Dust.  Hope you join us for this fun challenge; can't wait to see your idea for the song.  :)  Thanks for stopping by.

Welcome Summer

     Summer is right around the corner here in the U.S. and I have a summertime card to share with you.  My card is stamped with Bloomer Gilli, and she's all set to go for a swim.
       We're having a challenge over at House of Gilli to create a card/project with vibrant summer colors.  Doesn't that sound fun and easy?!  If you have a Gilli stamp use that on your project and you'll be entered to win twice.  You will still get a chance at winning even if you don't use Gilli; so get those projects in.  :)   
     I've added a few doodles to her inner tube with a Signo uni-ball gel pen, and a little bit of diamond dust to the sand at her feet.  I'm going to list the Copics I used but don't laugh because it's a ridiculous amount, but this happens to me every time.  Hair:  E50, 30,31,33 and 37, Skin:  E000, 00, and 11,  Top:  YR12,15,16,18,FYR1 and E19, Bloomers:  Y11,13,15,17,FY1 and YR27, Inner Tube:  BG000,01,02,05 and 07.  oh and a little W00 and W1 on the white parts of her outfit.  
     Choose some fun, vibrant colors and come join us for the challenge at H.O.G.!!!  Thanks for stopping by today.  :)

Quiet Elegance

      Guylou's Inimitability is our current sponsor for the challenge over at TTCRD.  Our challenge is to use any form of distressing.  I've colored Guylou's *Monique* with Copics:
     To distress my paper I used the Zutter Distrezz-it-All, and ran it back and forth until I got the look I was after.  I was trying for shabby-chic and don't do this look too often so it took me longer than usual to work out a lay-out.  
     If you're the winner at TTCRD, you'll receive a $10 gift certificate for Guylou's Inimitability lovely digi designs.  

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
The Joyful Stamper ~ Inspire Me Friday, Anything Goes
Divas by Design ~ Anything Goes
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge ~ Anything Goes
