Dog Days of Summer

I guess next weekend will mark the last official weekend of summer. I don't mind at all, because fall is my all time favorite time of year. I am so sorry I have not been very active this week, but my computer crashed! So this post is coming to you from a very old PC that has no photo editing programs on it - so, I have to apologize the the dark picture.

I loved this stamp from Stampavie for this week's theme at the Beary Scrap- The Dog Days of Summer. If you will notice, there is a cute little puppy along for the ride. I mixed papers from My Mind's Eye - Dreamy 2 and Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry. I colored the image with copics, and used Distress Inks to add the blue edging. I had a fun sun chipboard shape that I colored with Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam in Rockin' in Sunshine. This is a really fun product that gives a very different finish from the Glimmer Mist.

Enjoy your last few days of summer and don't forget to come back to the Beary Scrap DT Blog on Monday to see what we have planned.

Eden with Teddy

Today, I have a cute card to share with you, using Eden with Teddy, from Belles n Whistles. I colored her with copics. I added tons of gorgeous ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbons. Bonnie just keeps adding more and more goodies that I fall in love with.

First, I layered sheer ruffle edge Old Gold on the bottom, and added stitched edge reversible burgandy/gold over the top. I love the elegant ribbon treatment that this created. Then to finish it off, I tied lovely bows using the Lingerie hand dyed silk.

Thanks for looking!

Seeing Spots with Karen's Doodles

I love polka dots and I'm always drawn to anything with them! So this week's challenge at Karen's Doodles was so easy for me - Polka Dots! Even my image - Ladybug School Lunch, came with polka dots! I absolutely flipped for this drawing when I saw it! I guess you could say it is cute as a bug!

You have until Sunday night to get your entry in. Remember, the first place prize is now awarded to the card voted on by the DT - so show us what you've got!
