Just Splashing By!

Good Monday to you! I hope that you had a wonderful weekend! I thought that I was going to be able to post this yesterday, but the day got away from me. My family went golfing and I went shopping with my parents! It was a very good trip. I bought a new shower curtain and some bathroom accessories, a couple of new pairs of pants for when I head back to school, and then we headed out to a stamping/scrapbooking store, and of course, I found a few things there as well. It was a terrific day!

On Saturday, I somehow came across a "new to me" stamping company when I was exploring some crafty things on etsy. It is called, 2 Cute Rubber Stamps. You all know how much I {heart} cute stamps, so I bought a few of Heidi's digital images, and I must say...they are quite CUTE!! This adorable pair is called Manatee Friends. I printed them on Beckett Expressions card stock and colored them up with Copic Markers (BG10, C0, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9, E00, E01, E35, E37, R20, R29, YG13, YG17, YR15, and the Colorless Blender). Some Star Dust Stickles were added for a bit of sparkle too. I needed a layout with a large area for the main image so I headed over to Karen Giron's blog and just as luck would have it...her Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge for this week was perfect! I dug out my Coluzzles for the ovals and then I distressed them a bit. The patterned paper is from yesterday's shopping trip. It is from TPC Studio. I love these polka dots. The other side has these wonderful rows of ocean critters, but that was much too busy for this creation. I sewed the polka dotted square to a layer of Certainly Celery and attached that to a white card base. Then I added a strip of Certainly Celery with a touch of May Arts gingham and some more sewing to dress it up. The sentiment is a free digital one from Pink Cat Studio. I added an American Crafts button to finish it off. I don't make too many square cards, but I really like how this one turned out. Hope you do too! Enjoy the rest of your day, and thank you so much for stopping by for a visit...Toodles! :D
