Summer Fun!


Woo Hoo! Summer is here in full force! It is just too hot to even walk my dog in the noon time.  Poor guy, he is used to walking 3 times a day and now he is down to 2.

My card today is for the new Just Magnolia and Hanglar Stanglar Challenge this week! The theme was set by the talented Jan who wants to see "Holiday Fun".  Now this can be any holiday, but several of us went with the summer holiday idea! Whatever floats your boat for holidays is fine! haha!  Our wonderful sponsor is Jacobi NL.

I adore this cute Tilda with the Hula hoop! I used to love hula hooping as a child.  It is so difficult and fun and you look like a total dork doing it, but it is FUN! haha!



Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  Magnolia - Rocking Tilda  and Butterfly Background
Inks:  Distress ink refills on watercolor paper
Embellies:  Aqua Trellis roses, 25mm baby pink open roses, pink sweetheart blossoms, metal accents, self adhesive pearls, Vintage Seam Binding and pearl spray all from none other than WILD ORCHID CRAFTS!!!!
Tools:  Magnolia Doohickey Antique Lace, Quikutz Photo Corner

I would like to enter the Everybody Art Challenge which has a summer theme!

After cutting out the Antique lace pieces I ran them through a crimper for a little different look.  I don't think you can see it in the picture, but I like the look a lot. Frost stickles were applied to the clouds and sun!

I used my 0 round brush to make the little grass at her feet!

I love what all my talented teammies made, please be sure to check out their blogs!

Thank you for visiting me today! Have a wonderful weekend!

Hugs, Dena

  24. OMG Dena .. I cracked up seriously when you said hula hooping makes you look like a total dork! hahaha!! Yep, I did look so dorky doing it .. but I agree, it's so much FUN!!! You know, I used to always hula hoop when I was little too .. from the neck, go down to the waist, even on the ankle and then hop over with the other foot? hehe .. you give me a hula hoop today and I'll probably not know what to do with it! haha!!!

    Well, your card is just DIVINE!!!!! These colors!!! And your colouring!!! OMWord!!! Just completely GORGEOUS!!! Loooove it!

    ps...hope it cools off so your doggie can resume his normal walks! It's SO hot here too!

    Big Hugs,
    Elise

  25. Hello you!
    Sorry I've not left a message in a while. I'm having problems blogging on the netbook & I have to come upstairs & squirrel myself away on the upstairs computer to get onto blogger sometimes. I get so lonely up here on my own :~( But not when I have gorgeousness such as this to coo over! :~)
    Hope you are keeping well my friend.
    Supersize Hugs,
    Andie xx
