Designed 2 Delight Faith gave us an image of our choice for playing last week. I got this pretty Lakeside Shack image and added Mary, Mary. I think she is so cute and looks like she is having such a good time at the lake. I thought this was a very restful, cool, peaceful scene. I need that!!

Designed 2 Delight. I love the white filled PNG images so can't resist using two of them together. I get really tired of green and red so pink gingham checks seemed to be a nice alternative. I didn't use glitter because the paper is metallic and has a really nice sheen IRL.
The second card is an image from I Brake for Stamps. I have had this stamp for several years but will probably use it again this year for some of my cards. I used the Torn paper technique as well as With or Without Collage techniqe from Technique Junkies. Both are really easy techniques and I am all about easy.

Designed 2 Delight but occasionally forget to post the image to her site as was the case last week with my strawberry card. Sigh.......! This week she has a beautiful peacock image for us to play with. I really have a difficult time coloring these so chose to do watercolors using Stampin Up ink pads and wc crayons. The border and corners are Spellbinder's Floral Doily Accents.

D2D and then for my Big Picture SB Color Class. This week we are doing orange and yellow. When we were in Paris a few years ago we took a picture of a beautiful flower garden and it looked like it bordered the Eiffel Tower. That is one of my favorite pics and I think of that scene when I think of Paris. The flowers and sentiment are from D2D and the image is from Tibits Trinkets.

D2D. I colored it with copics and SU markers, which are really good to color in the small spaces.

I ordered some new stamps from I Brake for Stamps, which is my favorite stamp company! The dancers are two of four on the sheet and there are two other sentiments beside "Dance." I used my distress inks again and some beads I got from a local bead store.

Designed2Delight. I got the free sentiment at Scrap-a-licious. I went back to the basics with watercolor crayons and torn paper. I don't use much patterned paper but really do like the look so am trying to learn to mix and match. Now that I look at the picture of the card I think I should have let the paper edges be even on the left side.........................Sigh! Have a Happy 4th!
