Summertime


Good morning Peeps! It is going to be fairly decent today but then sizzling from Friday on. Guess what we are doing Saturday? Yup, seal coating the deck. We power washed it last weekend in preparation but could we have picked a better weekend? I think there will be 4 of us so it should not take too long I hope.

For my card today I got my inspiration from Kitty Kraft's blog I am always blown away with her cards. I also used a much neglected Sarah Kay image and colored her with my Copic markers. I cut her out with my oval nestabilities and the oval scallop underneath it. I also paper pierced the scalloped one. I used a Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes for the white piece she is mounted on but the corner is my favorite, thanks Kitty. I just used a Martha Stewart punch to get this affect. I have to say this was not the punch I wanted to use but the M.S. punch I wanted to use would not punch! It is in the freezer as I heard this sometimes works. I tried to sharpen it but that didn't help. Besides not stamping, it would not release the paper. Anyone have these problems with your punches?

Well that is about it for this time. So until next time, happy trails to you...

  1. Hi Sheri,
    What a cute little girl: she's ready for summer! As usual you did such a great job coloring her. Hope your deck sealing goes well. It has been very hot here the last few days but will only be 85 today. LOL

  2. Would love to know what answers you get! ALL of my MS punches do that - they punch beautifully for a while, then just stop. No warning, no dragging or tearing, just suddenly stop. Your card is adorable! That image is SO cute! Thanks for sharing...

  3. Very cute card! Yes, I often have that problem! Too bad we can't use DW 40. Just afraid it would grease up our wonderful creations! LOL

  9. Sheri this is awesome - I love the layout, the colors and your coloring!! I have the same problems with many of my MS punches. They won't punch PTI paper or anything that is heavy weight. At least the older ones won't.
