Resurrecting Old Supplies and Using Them With New Ones!

Created by Michele Kovack
I have had so much more time in my craft room this week and am completely loving it!  It's been a long time since I've been able to craft consistently.  I've been reviewing my older stamps and came across this cute little watermelon and sentiment. The watermelon image is from Hambo stamps (circa 2002!).  Remember this company?  ;)  And the sentiment is from A Muse.  
I am not sure how true the sentiment is....but we'll roll with it!

I stenciled the sun using Tim Holtz inks in yellows.  I added a shadow using gray Copics. The watermelon was colored and then I added a bit of grass and green stippling. I stamped the sentiment and popped it up vertically. I added a few sequins and a bit of yellow twine

Life hasn't been a breeze for this little cutie. 
She had to have emergency surgery on Thursday to take out a very large bladder stone. She is doing much better now, but not too happy about having to wear this cone!  I did end up going to Pet Smart to buy a soft one, but couldn't resist taking her picture first!

Thank you for hanging out with me for a bit today!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Such a cutie. One of our clockers had a baseball sizable bladder stone. I kept it for years. The vet had never seen one so large. Poor baby.

Your card embodies the carefree days of summer, Michele! It's so cheery and fun! You've inspired me to go through my craft stash and use some products I haven't pulled out in a while. I'm so happy your fur baby is on the mend!

Your card evokes so much of what summer is all about. It's delightful! I'm so sorry about your little friend there. What a sweet dog. Hope the recovery is swift and soon the cone will be but a memory. Thanks for sharing!

So cute and cheerful! Love the older stuff, and you have certainly made it look new again. No, life isn't always a breeze and your little baby girl can testify to that! She'll be happier when the cone is off. Ouch, that stone must have been painful!
