Well Happy Cupcake Friday, y’all! I am so excited to show you this card, I had so much fun making this card because it reminded me of the beautiful California beaches, oh how I miss them living in Texas! *I bet Taylor misses them too, since she moved back to IA* I have to tell you I’ve been to the coast in Texas and the beach here does NOT hold a candle to the ones in California! On my card, I decked the puppy out for a lazy day at the beach with his shades on using Beach Bum*; I omitted the cuppie from the sandcastle image and masked the puppy from Whimsical Wishes set Beary Specia*l. I colored the puppy black & white with prismacolor pencils, blended with odorless mineral spirits. I sponged in some clouds and added some embellishments from the Beach Bum key ingredients kit (the papers are from the kit as well). *these links are to the TE store – it is temporarily down, moving to a different server*
Here is Taylor’s sketch for you to try - be sure to leave a comment on Taylor’s blog with the direct link to your blog post or gallery upload using the Mr. Linky service so she can check it out! You're always welcome to play with any of these sketches at any time, but you have one week to make a card and link your creation on her blog in order to be considered for the Featured Sampler (by Friday, August 7 at 10am CST)! As usual, you don’t have to use cupcakes for your creation either, but if you have them, why not use them!?!
Be sure to check out the Cupcake Crew’s Creations who, no doubt, will have some fabulous eye candy for you in various stamping styles (I just love it!)
Our featured sampler today is Teresa Kline – Enjoy the VA Sunshine who has some wonderful creations on her blog!
Hope you have a sweet day & super weekend!!
