Before I share my card with you this morning, I want to say that if the title of this post seems a bit misleading, that's totally unintentional. For those of you who haven't had the joy of raising both girls and boys, I want you to know that there are very different definitions between them of what makes a perfect summer day. For boys, it's finding a frog and an earthworm, and then discovering a HUGE snail, all of which must be taken right home to Mom! And Mom, who's probably in the kitchen baking cookies with Sis, is required to be appreciative and stifle the gag reflex when the frog jumps into the cookie dough!
My sketch came from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2
and I used colors found in the inspiration photo at
The cute image from Sassy Cheryl's is colored with ProMarkers, cut with a die from Spellbinders, and matted with both navy and aqua CS from AC Cardstock. The ribbons are all from my stash and the bow is one of those I make and keep in my stash for future use. The sentiment is printed with a computer font, matted, and added last.
This is going to be a work day for me, despite the fact that this is supposed to be a long, holiday weekend. There are some things I simply must get done and they are going to involve a significant amount of computer time. I wish it was going to be all fun & games and creating but... So, to each of you who doesn't have to 'work' -- Happy Stamping. :-D NanaConnie
