Fluffles and watermelons

I am sorry for not posting more often, it seems like something always seems to come up lately.

I DO have a couple of new cards for you....
The first one is for Julia's sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers "The Dirty Dare" - I was supposed to upload this card over a week ago...thank goodness the girls there left the gallery open for a few weeks for us always late girls!!
Stamps: Stampendous grasshopper fluffles, SU fancy flexable phrases
Paper: Imagine that textured cardstock, Rob & Bob Studio superslab 8, SU whisper white cardstock
Inks: SU basic black, Versamagic chalk ink - jumbo java, prismacolor pencils and odourless mineral spirits
Accessories: may arts ribbon, sakura stardust clear gel pen, the paper studio - bubble.a.bilities
Tools: SU corner rounder, Sewing Machine, SU distressing tool

The next card was made with one of my new stamps that I bought on my last trip to Minot, ND. You have no idea how MUCH I LOVE living only 1 1/2 hours from Minot...it rocks!! It is closer to Minot then it is to Regina, so why not go to Minot...especially with our dollar being as good as it is right now.
Stamps: Stampabilities - hop it - seed shooter, SU riveting
Paper: SU whisper white, Imagine that textured cardstock, unknown paper from a stack bought at Michaels
Inks: SU basic black, Versamagic chalk ink-jumbo java, prismacolor pencils and odourless mineral spirits, SU watercolor crayons
Accessories: May arts ribbon, SU metal edge tags, SU basic black marker, SU black embossing powder
(here is a little tip for you....do not emboss something and then in that area, try to blend your prismacolor pencils with odourless mineral spirits!! The mineral spirits make the embossed area smudge everywhere. I found a blender pen and the SU watercolor crayons, work way better!)

Thanks again for your kind comments, and I hope that you enjoy the rest of your summer!
