It is finally TOOSDAY!

So put your shades and sunscreen on! You don't want to be blinded!

Why...well because Stamping Bella is letting loose of her Scrapfest release today! I don't know about you, but this BABE is uber excited! Little hints have lead me to believe that she is 'mixing it up a bit' and might be throwing in some images that I can only 'dream' will be suitable for journalling, mixed media, or artsy fartsy cards! Yes, although I love to colour, I also enjoy the process of creating something that is just artsy fartsy and fun. It allows me to release my pent up creative frustrations.

SO...I hope you have your shades on 'cause this babe is soaking in the sun! This is a Mo Manning image available in rubber at Stamping Bella called Little Umbrella. Does she look like someone you know?

Only in my dreams, and probably not even there, would I have enough guts to wear that on the beach! My weight has always fluctuated within maybe 20lbs at most of my ideal weight, but even when I am wafer thin I still don't have the guts to wear something like that. Call me conservative, call me shy, call me whatever, but I prefer to keep my body under wraps. A LOT of wraps!

Basic Grey hello luscious was my inspiration and stamped her on bella's BESTEST paper and coloured with the following copic markers:

E0000, 000, 00, 11, 21, 23, 25, 27
BG10, 11, 01, E30, 31, 40, 41, 42
R20, 21, 81, 83, 85, 22, 24, C5
G40, 12, 82, YG21, 03, W5, 7, 9

She reminds me of the old saying amongst us girls...."things could be worse, we could be trying on bathing suits"

MWAH to the sistahs who don't have inhibitions!

Now...go get stalking Stamping Bella and wait for the new release to come online! And I dare you to beat me to the order finish line!

Later, Linda

This is such a wonderful card and your coloring is just WAUW. I´ve just watched your video too and I´m truely amazed of your work. You should really do some more of thesm, as it is really good and I would love to see more about, how you color as I´m sure, I could learn a lot and I could sure need that LOL. I´ve just loved everything I´ve seen here today thanks to Beth, who gave us your link, and thanks for that to both of you. Havea wonderful day.
