Doin' my friend proud!

I spent Sunday morning colouring up some of Paula's images that are NOW AVAILABLE IN RUBBER AT NONE OTHER THAN STAMPING BELLA!!!!

Do you have any idea how much love I poured into these images...I SO wanted them to be special and beautiful. And as much as I love flowers, I am kinda drawn to this SUMMER DAYS set because it reminds me of my family, my house and the simple pleasures in life. Who would not want to spend a lazy afternoon, or sipping a coffee after dinner sitting on the porch swing.

I actually have a porch swing that my brother made me. He also has one of his own but his is on his front porch, while mine was hanging off the pergola on my back deck. I grew up in a house with a large front porch and as much as it nice to have the privacy of a big backyard, nothing compares to sitting on the front porch and watching the world go by.

I paired this one up with Basic Grey's Pyrus paper and coloured with the following copic markers, using some pencil for shading and highlights.

E40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 47
BG70, 72, B41, 95, 97, 99, YG25
Y17, YR24, W0, 1, 3, 6

Our challenge this week is to add some POP to your card, with dimensional foam, scrap dots, liquid applique...anything...JUST MAKE IT POP! I did pop this card with some foam squares but I'll be back on Friday with another Paula popped image!

Can't wait to show you the next one!
