Percy & Lily

If it's not computer woes...it's internet woes. I finally gave up trying to post this last night. It seems to be working okay today (fingers crossed).

This is Percy from the DoodleFactory (available at Starving Artistamps). I stamped him with Adirondack ink, and colored with my Copic Sketch markers. The Soft Sky background is embossed with my Floral Fantasy Cuttlebug folder, and the edges were distressed with my Cutter Kit (SU). I used some Prima flowers and a pretty Dew Drop for the center of them. The sentiment is from one of my new Starving Artistamps sets, "Fresh and Funky Farm". I used two different sentiments here, connecting them with a row of dots. (The dots are from one of letter i's that I inked with my marker, and stamped three times).


Stamps: Fresh and Funky Farm (Starving Artistamps), Percy (DoodleFactory @ Starving Artistamps)
Card Stock: Basic Gray, Soft Sky, GP White, Barely Banana
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black, Copic Sketch markers
Accessories: Prima flowers, Peony Dew Drop, ¾ inch square punch, Floral Fantasy Cuttlebug folder, Square Nestabilities, Glue Dots, Crystal Effects, Stampin' Dimensionals, Cutter Kit (SU)


RAK from Lorien
This Lily card is just adorable, and it was created by Lorien from Stamps N More. Lorien is so sweet, and I'm glad we met at the Michigan Minglers SCS event in March! I love the layout, coloring, and pretty Dew Drops on this!! Thanks for the darling card, Lorien!!

With encouragement from many of my blogging buddies, I've decided to turn my comments back on. We are still trying to adjust to the new schedules, (it hasn't been easy) but hopefully things will get better as we go along!! To all who have sent such kind messages and words of encouragement, I thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

Thanks for visiting!!

Wahoo! I was finding myself commenting allowed on your beautiful cards! My family was starting to look at me strangely (of course, my pre-teen daughter does that anyway)! Seriously, I'm glad to have you back but certainly understand that we have to do what is best for our families! This is such a cute elephant! I love that entire line of stamps and you make them so appealing! Take care!

Oh, gosh, this is cute! And your RAK is adorable, too. Two cute cards in one post! Dang, I forgot I have this embossing folder. It looks great on your card. Seems just right with the big flower. Love the colors.
