A Little Bit of Fun


I hope you are all well, and enjoying the Summer weather.  For me, it feels as though the real summer weather has taken a little longer to get here, (at least here in NY State), but I know that more is coming soon.

Today I have what I think is a darling card to share with you.  Using "Sweet Tooth" from Elisabeth Bells Digital Gallery.  Talk about some Good Old Fashion Fun!!!

I really enjoyed coloring this cutie, and that precious gumball machine from days gone by....

I really didn't have any idea what kind of layout I wanted to use, so I did some paper tearing, and some sort of random layout.  I have to admit, that I like the way it turned out.  What do you think?

I colored my image using Copics of course, simply because they are my favorite medium to use.  I don't know what I would do without them.  Coloring just isn't the same!

Every single piece on this card was taken from scraps and odds and ends in my stash, including the red plastic netting which actually was part of a bag that held ice pops.  When my husband ate the last ice pop I told him to PLEASE not throw away that mesh looking bag that they were in... He couldn't figure out why... well, if he only knew that some of the best embellishments come from odds and ends!!!  Right?

Thanks for stopping by today!

Ohhhhh, and before I forget... Our Blog Hop has been rescheduled for NEXT week.
Hope that you will join us on Friday June 22nd.  You won't want to miss it!

Lynda, your Sweet Tooth image looks fabulous on this playful and colorful card. What an amazing way to make great use of scraps and other household materials that might find their way into the trash?!?!?! Nicely done!!! TFS! Hugz, ~ Rose
