Well after a very hot and sweaty morning trying to make a start catching up on yard work - rewarded but some time in the pool (doing water aerobics but still relaxing :) - I am determined to get in some quality stamping time.
The teens were up till about 4 am ish and then several were back up by 630 to shower and get home so I have a feeling both of my teens will be layin' around a bit today :)
I did this card for 2 challenges - First for the current one over at 'In A Sweet Pea Dream'
Their challenge is for lace - and I used some lace from my stash.
The second challenge is for 'Sweet Pea Stampers' - http://www.sweetpeastampschallenge.blogspot.com/
and their challenge is "swirls of summer"
This great image is of course from Sweet Pea Stamps and is colored with prismacolor pencils. The 'frame' is a Spellbinders die cut 4 times from a shimmery blue cardstock.
I am not entirely happy with my rendition of darker skin tones but I still like how she turned out over all.
All for today - craft room is calling.
