Rainy Day Duck

Good morning! I hope you had a great weekend! We have been in the hundreds for just over 5 days and finally a cool front rolled in and gave us some relief yesterday. It was nice to be able to open up the windows again and sit outside without feeling like you had walked into an oven! ; ) 

I have a cute new set to share with you today by Crafty Secrets.  It is called Animal Party. (It will be available tomorrow, July 10th)  I loved pulling out the Copic Markers and just coloring.  There is something very cathartic about coloring.  I felt like I hadn't done it for awhile and was just a tad rusty.  But it's a bit like riding a bike... : )
 Who can resist a polka dotted umbrella? ; )
I used several Spellbinder's dies to matte my duck. 
I stamped the sentiment and placed it in this little metal picture frame. I added a bit of glossy accents and slipped it under the knot of my bows. I snuck a little bitty purple flower charm in there too!  

I am heading out to breakfast with a friend today....then off to Archiver's to scrap with more friends, and then I am going to Cortney's school to pick her up for therapy.  A busy, busy day!
Just the way I like 'em! : )
Have a great one!

Adorable card; adorable image. I agree with you in that I have so many images coloured up simply because I enjoy the colouring process more than the actual card making (grin). Hoorah for the break in the heat -- still sweltering here in the south (yuck). Have a great day. Looking forward to your next blog entry.

Your cards look larger than 8.5x11 or 12x2 paper. Where do you get the larger papers/cardstock to make a larger folded cards?
