For my first image I went with the pretty new "Bluebird" this new image is so fun to color!
I colored with both pencils and my Copics (colors below) I cut out in a circle with a die cut. Then I dug for some papers to match up with my Bluebird - Now for some reason I was drawn to bold and bright red and white papers. My Minds Eye older papers, with white card stock base and red card stock mats. I sewed down the layers of the papers, and then found the High Hopes Stamps "Lg. Script Thank you". Then for some added fun I added four dots of white Nuvo Paint.
Copic markers used -

We are now officially half way through the year and some restrictions are being lifted. Hopefully, they will be able to stay in place and this will become the new normal; -- time will tell.
This might cheer people up -- High Hopes Stamps has a brand new Summer 2020 Release. For today's card I have used the adorable Willa with a Flower. After colouring the image with Copic Markers, I cut it out using the Stitched Ovals from Tutti Designs. Using the larger size of the same die, I cut out two pieces of mulberry paper -- my stash of this awesome paper is low and I have had no luck in finding any stores that stock it.

Beachball Betty from the new Summer 2020 release (click here for to see the full release) is at the beach and enjoying a beautiful summer day and she has some advice for us all.
I love her sass! and I think I better listen to her advice and find some sand to stick my toes in to when it is safe to do so of course <wink>
I coloured the stamp with alcohol markers and then trimmed the paper leaving it long. The sentiment was stamped directly under the stamp and then I trimmed the whole thing to fit my card front and added some matching card stock.
Adorable flip flops, a sun and cloud dies and some enamel dots finish off my card.

Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadian friends!!
Okay so here's the thing....I don't like snow or the cold temps. I also don't like when it is so hot & humid outside you can hardly take a breath. Seriously not complaining....just sayin'! As Canadians we are BLESSED to live in this beautiful country of which I still have so much more to see. Wishing all of you good health & happiness no matter where you live!!
Since it's sooooo humid & hot today I decided to be creative indoors. This super cutie is Handsome Gnome from our new High Hopes release. When I colored Handsome Gnome up I hadn't chosen my papers yet....so good thing I'm a hoarder of crafty supplies. I had the perfect paper from LDRS just waiting to be used on this card. I paired Handsome Gnome with the new Mini Sentiment Set #1 which where designed perfect for 3 of the new gnomes.
I needed to starting refilling my stock of masculine cards & I think this one suits the bill.
