Time Flies Diva Card
Hope you are having a great Labor Day. :) Sharing a card I whipped up yesterday afternoon. This one fall into several challenge site categories. First, I used the sketch over at Just Us Girls (Challenge 49) while following the recipe at Sentimental Sunday (Challenge 19...Use 1 solid paper, 2 patterned papers, 3 embellishments plus a sentiment). Then Paper Sundaes has a mixed mediums (it is number 34) challenge of using Copics with some other kind of coloring medium (I used chalk pencils). Last but not least is the Stampacular Sunday challenge to distress it (no. 75). The rubber stamps are by Hampton Art (the stamped images were colored with Copic Ciao markers and then touched up with Createcolor Chalk pencils). I thought it would be fun to use aleopard and zebra patterned papers (by BoBunny and Making Memories). The flowers and the printed twill are by Graphic 45.
Better run. We are having a fun stay at home Labor day. All of us have spent the morning doing what we want. This afternoon we are playing games, watching movies, etc. together. Goodbye summer 2010....you were fun but oh so hot. :) Going to hate saying goodbye to all the hummingbirds too. What grand free entertainment they have been. Their feeders the last few days have been busy, busy, busy! (Having to fill them almost everyday!...I think I must be feeding some who have already started migrating South.) Course September means that I will also be saying goodbye to my oldest daughter in a couple of weeks. She is going to be attending college in England this fall so that falls under the "happy AND sad" (not to mention the "broke" category). Sure all you moms know what I mean. I'm happy for her but sad for me (I'll miss her). :) Anyways, thanks for stopping by and Happy Labor Day!
