Sweet!

Good morning to you! I hope you had a great weekend! Our weekend was filled with sunshine, swimming, a church carnival, and some family time on Father's Day. So all in all, a great weekend!

I have a Crafty Secret's card to share with you that uses the Couple of Cuties stamp set. This image is so cute and sweet! I used my Copics to color it in and Crackle accents for the heart to give it an aged feel. Of course I had to use glitter around the frame of the image. ; ) I used some misc. papers I had scraps of on my desk. I think some is Jenni Bowlin, and Crate Paper. The pink text paper is actually recycled packaging from one of my ribbon packs. (Teresa Collins)
For my accent pieces, I used a crocheted doily, a Prima flower, some brown twine, and hot pink lace! I also added a Teresa Collins stick pin to it!
I think this angle gives you a better look at the Crackle effect on the heart........I've been a wee bit addicted to this stuff..... ; )
And here are a couple of pool pics of my two teenagers! The first one telling......not asking....me to grab my camera and take a few pictures of him. He told me he wants me to scrapbook him, so he can get published in a magazine! (Ok......I admit, I have submitted a few pages of Cortney that have been picked up for publication........and none of Kyle at the moment. So my new mission is to get his mug inside a magazine! ; ) I mean really, who wouldn't want this face in a magazine? ; )
Oh....and here is my published star! LOL! Cortney absolutely LOVES to swim. I think it is the only time her poor body gets to be free! Her legs don't work too well on land, but in the water? They work perfectly! She will kick and move around the pool for hours!
It is a rainy, gloomy Monday here........but it's all good. A few candles lit, the sound of laundry washing, and a good cup of coffee........ : )

Oh Michele the card is beautiful.. I have tried to use that crackled accents but apparently I don't know how to use it because mine never looks like that heart.. Sounds like you had the perfect day...The pictures of the kids are great.. love how you have captured Kyle in the air...

Your card is so sweet. I am not much of a stamper but that stamp looks like something I might have to invest in. Looking forward to your son's face on a magazine stand ;)
