All the Good Things


One of my favorite things about summer is watermelon.   Who wouldn't want to steal a slice?  I came up with this idea for a family member with a summer birthday.   I think they got a laugh out of the card. I wrote inside that "I hope their birthday was a picnic".

It is hard to believe that it is almost mid-July already.  This summer is going by so quickly.  I should start to think about holiday and maybe some Christmas cards... but I'm not ready just yet to put away my summer stamps.  Just look at this guy!  How could I resist him?  Just look at those leaves on his head and sweet overalls.

Purple Hugs

Hello friends, 

Sympathy cards are always hard to make, but they are so necessary to have on hand.  I wanted to play around with purples.  I also chose to de-boss rather than emboss.  I could be my imagination, but I feel like it gave the card a softer look.  What do you think? 

Copics used:

Purple: V09, V06, V05, V04, V01, V00  or BV08, BV04, BV02, BV01, BV00
Green: YG67, YG63, YG61
