Hello sunshine!

Mornin' folks!

I've got a big shopping day ahead of me so my post will be quick. :)
This past week has been hot, hot, hot and as I've been inside completely thankful for the invention of air conditioning, the cards I've been making all seem to reflect a definite summer time feel. I think it is partly due to my wishfulness for the ever elusive golden tan. Me, I've been 'blessed' with skin that goes from white to lobster red... no in between. Sigh, if only I could give myself a nice E13 glow like Florence here, LOL! ;)

Speaking of Florence, doesn't she look like a gal ready to enjoy a day poolside? Now all she needs is a nice icy drink and things would be perfect... oh where is that cabana boy when you need him? LOL

Ok, keep cool my friends and I'll see ya again tomorrow! Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and PTI
paper- Reminisce (stripe), DCWV (water)
stamps- Kraftin Kimmie (Florence), Paper Trey Ink (sentiment)
ink- Memento tuxedo black
ribbon
Making Memories brad
American Crafts thicker border
Zva tiny pearl
Copic markers:
skin- E000, E00, E21, E13, R20
hair- E74, E77, E79, 0
clothes- C3, C5, C7, C9, Y00, Y02, Y06, Y08, BG11, BG32, BG34, G0000, G000, 0, N5, N9

Simply fabulous Amy! Love the water, and she sure does look like she's enjoying her day. Too funny about the E13, not so fun on turning lobster red though! Hope you enjoy that shopping day! :)

Hahaha, you now describe your skin tone in Copic shades, lol!! Try the Neutrogena spray sunblock, it's wonderful.

Love this super fun card, she's so sassy and your shading on her glasses is awesome :0)
