Summer is Here

and it's going to be a hot one...
Today I have this cute card that just says 
'Life's Short, enjoy the little things'
it's a stamp set that I won my 1st challenge over at 
ok that's a mouth full...heehee
oh I wish you could see the sentiment better
I cut the card with my Cameo, it's a new 3D card that Lori Whitlock has on the Silhouette store and also in her online store... I just love the files she comes up with...
the stamps are by Mark's Finest Papers Heinrich Collection Spring Flowers Stamp Set
I stamped the image and sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink
and colored with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers
oh I just love how the make me feel like a real artist
the coloring technique you can use,
I looked it up on YouTube how to color using alcohol markers, pretty fun I have to say...
then I added some charms that a friend gave me, I got lots ~ thank you Tammylee ...
added some twine by doodle twine, Lady bug is the color I used...
card stock was from the stash, or maybe the red was from Stampin' Up? heehee can't remember...
that's about it for today's post.
I hope you have enjoyed it, if you have let me know by leaving me a comment
