Fun in the Sun...

Happy Tuesday, everyone. I hope you're having a beautiful week. I have been racing around trying to catch up on my life...I've been on a year-long vacation and have just been offered a very cool job...which I accepted. So, I have to start weaning myself off those afternoon naps...and start going to bed at a reasonable time!! I'm pretty excited! My crafting and cardmaking will have to happen in the evenings and weekends...but just think, more $$$ for crafting supplies!! hahaha!

OK...so here's a little card that I put together yesterday when I was thinking about our vacations to St. Maarten where the water is such a clear turquoise blue! Can't wait to go back!! This card was a real stretch for me...I tried masking (which is such fun) to position the fence behind Tilda...and I added a second image (the cute little sun) to the front...and then inside, I attached another image. If you look closely at the front, you'll see Tilda is holding a yellow flip-flop in her hand. (That was my sweet hubby's idea!) So...here's the recipe:

Cardstock: Blush Blossom & Creamy Caramel (from Stampin-Up)
DP: DCWV Travel Stack
Sky & edging: Bashful Blue ink from SU
Prima flower & rickrack from Craft Essentials
Sentiment: Stampendous
Copics as follows:
Face/skin: E13, 11, 00, & R21 for cheeks

Dress: YG17, 13, 11, & N1 (over green to darken slightly); R35, 32, 30, RV 29 & 04 (for lower part of dress and hat)

I hope you enjoy this little card. Have a beautiful day, wherever you are...and thanks so much for visitng my blog! And don't forget, I love, love, looooooove it when you leave comments! Pat
