It's the week before the Fourth. Those of you who have visited here before know how much I really enjoy the sights and sounds of Independence Day. This is the first summer with all four of the dogs, and from the few preliminary firecrackers we experienced last night, I can tell you that Bianca and Chance will not handle the week well. Teddy and Muffin eventually settle down.
The worst part of this holiday is that I cannot have windows open to help ventilate the house because the sounds are louder. Currently, at 6:20 PM, the temperature inside the house in 86 degrees. Yippee. I will be leaving the house in a couple hours to go have dinner some place with yummy food and even yummier air conditioning!
Alright, I have several cards to share, but because many of them were made from scraps I received from a fellow card maker, I may not have full descriptions for them. Edits are in the future!
First is a card I made as my submission for Tickled Pink's "Lil Lads and Lolitas" design team. C. C. Designs are sold at All That Scraps.com. I have a lot of former students having babies, so this image will be used often!
Stamp: Little Lads & Lolitas "Baby Ivy" (Tickled Pink)
Papers: Paper Doll Collection "Emma" (Crate Paper), Walnut Grove "Nellie" (Pebbles)
Misc.: Groovy Guava ribbon (Stampin' Up!), circle dies (Nestabilities), pearls (unknown), white gel pen (Signo)
Here's a close-up of the main image. Hair is still kicking my ass, but I keep trying. I get the idea of creating hair by making strokes with the marker, but direction and color combinations continue to be a challenge.
Second, I made a card a submission for Sami's (A Day for Daisies) design team. I apparently didn't make the design team, but I like this card because it's a great image for lots of occasions.
Stamp: Comfy Coacoa (Sami Stamps)
Papers: magenta, black (Core d'inations), patterned (unknown)
Misc.: flower (Prima), ribbon (Michaels), photo corner punch (Stampin' Up!)
Next, are a couple cards I did for a card class I put together for some ladies at work. I can only lay my hands on two of the six that were offered. I'll add the others once I figure out where I put them...including the fireworks cards that need to go into the mail tomorrow!
Stamps: noneInk: Copic Multiliner
Papers: dark brown, teal (Core d'inations), patterned (unknown)
Misc.: orange Stickles, photo corner punch (Stampin' Up!), orange rhinestones (unknown), sentiment (computer generated)

More to come!
