Summer pics

Here are some pics that I took this summer at the lake. Those of you who don't know I love loons. I could spend hrs watching and taking pictures of them, hoping for just the best one yet. The other was a nice size snapping turtle that decided to show its self just be we were gonna go tubing and watering skiing from that very dock. Needless to say we started off from the shore. This was just one of the many things we had going on this summer that kept me away for so long! Have a great Day.

Hi today for today's post I did a challenge on split coast. It was to use your white gel pen in your background. This is the card that I came up with for the challenge. The Stamp set is from Inkadinkado Stamps. I stamped the flowers in using memento ink and embossed in in clear embossing powder. Then colored the image in with watercolor pencils. For the background I used the cuttle bug on the card stock which is Bazzill and I used the Swiss dots. Sorry I forgot the maker of the designer paper. The white on all of the flowers is the gel pen. I only added the ribbon,wanted to keep it simple because I had alot going on in the background. Thanks for looking. Stop back again. Thanks Meg

Weekend Sketch

You're the cherry on top. this week you can find this sketch# 80. I still have not figured out how to link to other blogs yet. The stamp is A Muse, I had to color it in with copic markers. My daughter favorite ice cream is strawberry so I used RV10&R22 and R27 for the cherry on top. The saucers that hold the ice cream were colored in with prismacolor markers warm color gray 10 and 20. I cut out the circles with nessies and used ribbon to round everything out. thanks for stopping. Have a great Mother's Day Meg
