Hi, There!

I do not like saying good-bye to summer but that is what makes everything so special - when you do not have it all the time!!  So here is my "good-bye" card for my last summer memory.  I remember how special collecting shells use to be when I was a kid and then reliving it thru my kids and my grandchildren.  Special moments for all and I hope you had a good summer and now on to the beauitful season of Fall - even though we all know what comes after Fall - each Season has its own beauty to appreciate!!  thanks for stopping by and till next time - Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Easel Card
Image is from Squiggle Fly and so is the sentiment but sad to say they have closed and I am not sure you can find this image at Sweet Pea as that is where I believe some of the artists found new homes.
I colored it up with copic markers as follows:
Skin E000 E00 E01
  Hair E30 E31 E34  
Sand E50 E51 E53  
Water BG000 BG01 BG05 BG09 Y08  
Bathing Suit BG01 BG05 AND R46
Designer papers and stickers from K&Company.  Glitters here and there, glossy accents on water and Wink of Stella in her hair.  Fun easel card to make!!

Hi, There!

A little break from our Grandson's basketball tournaments and a little time to create a card.  We all have summer time moments to remember but I think this young lady has some awesome moments to recall!  - Carefree summers at the beach with friends and being treated to a delicious ice cream cone to cool off!!

I used papers from Simply Stories/Good Day Sunshine, paper doily and paper flowers from Recollections.  The image from Delicious Doodles has been colored with Copic Markers and Spectrum colored pencils for shading. Some Stardust on her flowers, beads, and her cone.  Put two brads in the center of her hair flowers and cut the image out with a Spellbinders oval die cut.  Applied some washi tape in the left hand corner and cut out some icons from the paper to make little note cards and used a few pink rhinestones here and there. Glossy Accent on her sunglasses.

Hope you all enjoy your last days of summer and have some wonderful moments to remember.  I hope to get to one more "summer time" card before I switch to creating back to school and fall-type cards.  Thanks for stopping by, till next time we meet ~ Hugs, CaroleAnn
