Beach Babe

Hi All!  I've got a gorgeous beach babe to share with you tonight- her name is Cali Girl and you can pick her up from the Saturated Canary digi shop- and let me tell you, the whole time I was coloring her up I was just wishing I looked as good as this in a bikini!  Honestly, other than when I was little I don't think I've ever worn one- a fact I'm sure others around me appreciate, lol :)  But I decided that if I did ever look this good in a bikini I would surely rock a brightly colored one and have the matching glam to go with it- the full on cute beach bag and matching sunglasses.  I colored her up to match some papers from the We R Memory Keepers Tiffany 6x6 paper pad that I just picked up at my LSS because I knew they'd bring the totally girly beach vibe I wanted to go with on this card.  Then I just started grabbing all the girly stuff I love like flowers, a charm and some sparkle.  To finish it off I grabbed the banner out of my stash- I've literally had it for probably more than a year...one of those things you find on the clearance rack at Michaels and, even though you don't need it you know it will be perfect on some project sometime in the future, lol.  In the end, doing this card definitely made me want to go to the beach- but rest assured it will never be in a bikini :)

Summer Days

Hi All!  How's it going?  Well I've been having a little attack of the 'Odd'...now stop that imagination that's running wild I'm talking about Some Odd Girl stamps :)  (Although I do confess I'm plenty odd too, lol)  I've been on a SOG coloring spree and thought it was probably about time to actually make the cards to showcase them...here I'm using one of the new release digi stamps Summer Kaylee.  I decided to do a 'big head' for a change of pace and, to be completely honest, because I just LOVE coloring faces and hair :)  I wanted something bright and cheerful so I pulled out some paper from Jillibean Soup that seemed to fit perfectly.  I think this card could lend itself beautifully to being for lots of different occasions so instead of putting a sentiment on it now I decided to let it sit in my stash and then when I need a specific card I can match up the right sentiment then- keep things a little flexible.  I hope you enjoy!
