Let's celebrate you...

Hello, hello!

I've got a busy Labor Day weekend ahead of me. I'll be working straight through and town is always busy for this last hoorah of summer but I still plan on carving some time out for myself as well.  How about you guys? Any big plans for the long weekend?

For my card today I printed out another little Pee Wee Designs cutie called Little Miss Sunshine. She's another digital stamp from there Summer Fun collection and I really wanted to get her colored up before wrapping up this summer. I think she is a total cutie and needed to be on a fun birthday card. The paper is old Doodlebug from my bag of scraps and it forced me out of my coloring comfort zone with those bright RV pinks. They always freak me out a bit with their fluorescent look when I start coloring but it is cool watching them mellow a bit as they dry.

Ok, I gotta scoot.

Well done on the bright colours, love the card. No long weekend over here, I'm afraid I' ll have to work a few hours tomorrow, but hey, I spent a lovely time in the pool with my husband this afternnon. One of the perks of being self-employed and having your own pool lol. We're experiencing the hottest days of the year, with temperatures of over 30 °C in the shade. I' m hoping I'll also be able to make one or two cards this weekend and go out for a meal with friends.

Ok, I just have to ask "did you sew this?" If so I am in awww! Your stitches are perfect. I sew shirts for Jerry all the time, but I just can't sew on paper! Totally jelly! Hehe... Love your card she is too cute and your colors are awesome. I have all the Rs and all the RVs, but they are my least used. It truly is tragic. Hugs, Lisa
