This week we are once again sponsored by Rick St. Dennis, one of my favorite designers! He has so many different types of images that you are sure to find ones you like if you win. So good luck to you!
Before I get to that, I want to say a couple of things. Firstly, I hope all of the mommies out there had a wonderful day yesterday! Secondly, I will be behind on my comments to my blog buddies because I was gone this weekend. Gary and I took a very short break, to go to downtown Phoenix to catch two baseball games, to stay overnight at the Sheraton, and to celebrate our anniversary with dinner at The District restaurant. Which was very good, btw. Had fabulous tomato soup for an appetizer and then superb salmon for dinner. And a good lunch at Wild Thaiger in central Phoenix. Their Tom Ka Gai is stupendous! If you get the chance, by all means, go! You won't regret it. And then another good dinner at St. Francis in Phoenix--a delicious vegetarian Forbidden Rice Bowl. Oh, such a yummy weekend!
However, the baseball was not so good. Not even close. The Phillies were in town, and, although we had won the first two games of the series, we lost the last two. Yeah, the two that we went to see. Talk about a big bummer. So that put a bit of a damper on the festivities for us. Of course, I will admit that the games were close ones with a lot of excitement. So that part was good. Just the end result was not what we had in mind. Oh well...the season is young yet.
I am getting my stitches removed this morning. All 15 of them. I am soooo glad. By the time most of you read this, I should already be back home again. Jiggity jig.
Guess I'd best describe my card for you. I chose Rick St. Dennis Sea Sprite 2. I thought she was a fabulous image, complete with a really cool seahorse. I printed them on MICBC and colored them as follows with Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: YR20, YR21, YR23, E33, E35
Seahorse: BG000, BG02, BG05, BG07, BG09, BG53, B63, B66
I added a bit of Wink of Stella Brush Gold to the seahorse eyes and bridle. I was going to add a lot more sparkle, but chickened out. Yes, I was afraid; I was very afraid. I didn't want to redo the image in case the sparkle didn't work, so I just left it alone. Baaaaaaaaawk! Bawk. Bawk.
I chose DP from Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue collection and paired it with Stampin' Up CS.
My sentiment is from the Whimsy Fun Life Ticket collection of sentiments and was die-cut with the Whimsy Ticket die. My other die cuts were created using the following dies: Memory Box Loopy Rings; Cheery Lynn Seahorse Family; Marianne Designs Sea Shells, Sea Side, and Decorative Elegance. And hooray, I'm done!
Please check out the wonderful designs by my teammates this week! Really, really, fabulous! And since we are Anything Goes again, you can join us, right? Right! And have a wonderful week!
