Try It Out Thursday Goes Nuts!

I am soooo thankful... the weather today has actually been somewhat cool.  I am sitting in front of my computer as the breeze gently blows - or is it the fan? LOL!!!  Anyway, I am positive that our P G & E bill has to be lower (we've only turned on the air conditioner maybe 3 or 4 times).  I would like to turn it on everyday, but someone in my household has decided we didn't need it 'cuz of finances... hmmmph!  Bah humbug I say! hee hee...  At least I can still craft while sweating lol!

Here's another cutie from Victoria Case for SCACD Aurora 2 Collection - Nuts for You, The Sequel.


She's of course colored with copics...  Greens: G28 G24 G21 G20; Browns: E35 E34 E33 E31 E30; Hair: E35 E34 YR21 YR20; Skin: E11 E21 E00.
 

Gotta love that BLING!!!  Viva Decor Glitter Liner covers her hat, belt and shoes.  Isn't the squirrel adorable?  Makes me want to pinch it's little cheeks lol!  These outfits for Aurora are really so much fun to color.  I know I've said that before, but it's true!  Each one I color turns out to be my 'favorite.'  Do you do that too?  So many stamps, so little time...

The DP I chose for this card is from 7 gypsies, avignon.  It just happens to be on SALE right now!  Cute, huh?  I used a scrap of the same dp to make the flower.  I punched out 3 scalloped circles, crumpled them up and then put a decorative brad in the center.  So easy to make matching flowers for all your cards!  Are you wondering about the scrolls?  This is another one of my experiments : )  I used Transparent Gloss Gel Pen and sprinkled Toffee Flower Soft on top.

Pearl accents were made with Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Ice White.  Small flowers, pin and ribbon from my stash...

Challenges TBA:
Creative Inspirations - Recycle (flower)
My Time to Craft - Farm Fever!
Creative Card Crew - Cute & Girlie



I'm hoping to have the tutorials up soon to show you how I made the scrolls...

Don't forget my candy Here.  Ends August 31.

Thanks for looking!

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul ~
