Happy Hot Summer Day!

Hi, everyone. I thought I would post a few more cards that I have been working on. Slow and steady as they say. I am so excited I got a great box of goodies today from Stampin' UP! Some of the new Christmas stuff from the new Holiday Mini which will be coming to your mail box by Sept 1st. I can't wait to play and get some Christmas cards done for the PJ Party in Sept. On a hot day like today thinking of Christmas helps you cool down a bit. Thank who ever invented Air Conditioning for days like today. Well enough chit chat here are the cards. If you ever have any questions about the cards I have posted just email me or leave me a message and I am always ready to share. Lv E

This is one I did with my bella fairy my daughter bought me on her trip to Toronto. I was playing with a few borrowed nestibilities and got hooked just like everyone one else. Used my watercolor pensil crayons, dazzling diamond dust SU and bella bling.

Loved how my cc design Sugar plum Christmas Emma (Dat's) turned out. Used my copics and you can't really tell but I used white fun flock on her hat and outfit. I made the mushrooms look Christmasy to go with the new paper I got from DAT'S. (link below to her blog) I am still trying to figure out how to add links in my post they don't look as neat as everyone elses. I added glossy glaze to the light bulbs to give them a bit of a shine.

I am not sure where this image came from. I found it already stamped and never got to colouring her. I made the rest of the card look like a wrapped present to go with the presents she is holding. Love the new glitter card stock from DAT"s the sparkles don't rub off in your hands.

Sparkle's Creation Challenge #5

Well here are a few of my cards that I have been working on. Having a bit more energy without the chemo treatments. The radiation is not bad just a bit tired from time to time. Cat naps are great. One of them is for the Sparkle Creations rubber stamp Challenge #5. Used my cuttlebug. Have I told how much I love my cuttlebug. I used one of my new Sugar Nellie stamps, and Stampin' Up! Embosslits Dies Flower Burst. I used a mix of copics and watercolor pencils to color Coffee Time Sugar Nellie.
This second card I am using the new colours from Stampin' Up! Expresso and Marina Mist, Daffodile. I also used the same embosslits dies Flower burst, the new mini punches. It turned out great. Have a great week.

Just celebrated my 25th wedding anniversary to my amazing husband. He surprised me with a chocolate diamond ring. Now I can never go without my chocolate! lol!! He done good!! I am just finishing up my cards samples for this coming fall classes. Yes I am going to try and get back in the saddle and teach some really neat techniques. I will post them on the 12th Aug and they will be on display at Dat's by then as well. I don't have any cards to post today but here is a peek of my Daughter all dressed up for her Prom.
