Summer time

Today is a blistering hot day in Montreal.  It's perfect if you have a pool and air conditioning!  I went to Quebec city today... and came back... overall over 6 hours in the car for work.  So I had plenty of time to think about the card that I wanted to make tonight ;)))

While going through all the challenges I like I realized that I had won the blog hope at My heart pieces.  I was soooooo happy (realize this is a happy dance ;) ).  So I really wanted to enter their next challenge which is summer fun.  I chose 2 fantastic digis.  And tonight I'm playing with one of them.

This is Ankhi.  Isn't she pretty?!?  Just hope I did her justice!   I colored her up with copics.  I used my circle and scalloped circle to cut the digi and the circles around her.  I used Mindy Terasawa -Daydream 8x8 and 6x6 paper.  It has the wonderful sparkly paper ;)  so girly!!!  I used little bling butterflies that I found at a dollar store.  I used a brad from Doodle bug design - boutique brad that I got from Scrapbook Central a local store that I really purchase wayyyy to much from  ;)))  The happy day stamp, I don't  remember where and by whom it is... The tag was no longer with it.

I followed this sketch:

I'm entering this card in the following challenge:
  1. Aud sentiments challenge blog - Bingo (Happy, flower, bling)
  2. Tuesday morning sketches - sketch
  3. My heart pieces digital - summer fun 
  4. Dutch dare - summer fun
  5. Getting cricky - summertime
  6. Sentimental sundays - summer fun
  7. Love to create challenge - summertime fun
  8. Cute card thursday - her comes summer
I had fun!  I always have so much fun crafting.  Really removes me from whatever is going on around me... be it sickness... work... etc.  People are surprised and I got the question tonight, how do I manage to craft and have 4 kids... well I probably don't watch as much TV as most people.  I rest while crafting!

Thanks in advance for your lovely comments and a huge welcome to my new followers!!!!!
