Bugaboo card done another way...

Have you ever made a card and then thought maybe I should redo this card because something seems like it is missing. Well I made this card several different ways.  I just couldn't get it to look the way I wanted it.  Having a bad cold makes you less up for being crafty I think.  Well at least having a bad cold did that to me.  :)
You just want to lay down...

Can't wait to get back to feeling normal.

Pollycraft Sonny's party

Hello Everyone,

Pollycraft is having a DT call so I thought I would give it a go.  I created a card with the Sonny's Party image.  You can get this image for free HERE.

I created the background by using a balloon stamp and stamped it in the three different colors of chalk ink listed below.  The edges around the image are inked using distress ink spiced marmalade.

Here is my DT card for this challenge:

I used Popsicle Tobie for my image from Some Odd Girl.  I really wanted to use a summer theme for my card and I had some cute little popsicle stickers that went perfectly with this image.  The paper has suns all over it so that worked in perfectly too.

SOG Mermaid

Hello and summer is here!  
So I thought a mermaid card would fit right in with the current weather.  

I love creating cards with texture and beautiful colors.  I mostly stuck with the aqua colors on this card and I love the look.  The mermaid pops out with her glittery tail.  Don't you think?
