Life's a Beach!

(Rubber stamp: #700 Cordelia in Sand)

Hello!  I hope your Monday has been treating you well.  Things have been a bit hectic in the Bounds household, but all should be back to some sort of normalcy soon (; fingers and toes crossed ;)...I'm sure everyone can relate.  Still, I was able to sneak in a bit of time to create, which always leaves me feeling more relaxed. :)

I recently came across a much neglected and somewhat sad Fresh Brewed Designs rubber stamp...pretty Miss Cordelia Mermaid.  If you like her as much as I do, you may want to pop on over to the Fresh Brewed Designs Store because there are only two of her left, and I do not think Heather will be replenishing her rubber stamps.  While you are there, have a look around...you may find more loveliness you are itching to create with...I usually do.  Plus, as an added incentive, all proceeds earned by the store will go to a wonderful cause.  You can read more about it HERE

Lately, the beach has been calling my name, so I decided to create with Little Miss Lovely...and I must say...I think she was happy to finally get inky too. ;)  She was colored with Prismacolor markers, and the extra shimmer was painted on using DecoArt Ice Crystal Glamour Dust Glitter Paint, which I need to get more of VERY soon.  It is one of my go-to favorites and a total must-have!! The sentiment is from a retired Sweet N' Sassy stamp set, and the dies are from MFT.  Considering that I had no idea where this card was going when I sat down to create, I am rather happy with the way it turned out. 




I will be entering Miss Cordelia into the following FABULOUS challenges:

Thank you so very much for dropping by for a visit.  I hope you found a bit of creative inspiration while you were here.  Also, please stop by the Fresh Brewed Designs Store or the Digis for Debbie Fundraiser Shop.  Your purchase would be greatly appreciated as all proceeds will go to Mrs. Debbie and will help her with medical and aftercare expenses.  Once again, thank you!!

Hugs and Smiles!
Carolyn
