Fun in the Sun!

Hello my friends!  I'm so glad that you've stopped by to see me :D  I do hope that you are not melting in your corner of the world lol!  It's been sooooo hot!  Lord knows that I don't do hot very well.  It seems the older I get, the crankier I become in the heat.  No... seriously!!!  Do you think it has anything to do with menopause?  On that subject, I don't even know if I'm in it or what!?!  Two years ago I had a complete hysterectomy but because I've also had breast cancer, I can't take hormones.  I must say though that the hot flashes are not as frequent.  Oh well, whining never helps - no one seems to listen LOL LOL LOL!

So with that off my chest, I'd love for you to see what I've created with one of the latest releases from The Little Sassy Crew by Susana Loves Stamps for SCACD.  This is Little Morticia!

Isn't she fun?  Her 'thing' is that she loves to be color coordinated... even her hair!

One day I noticed this fabulous beach ball from Maria's blog and saw that she used a template from Paper Crafts Magazine.  I loved it so much that I downloaded the template myself - this is my version : )

In this photo, I'm highlighting the Ice Silks Acrylic Glaze which I used to cover the skull 'button' and also streaks of Morticia's hair!  Silks are so shimmery, and if you add Mica Powder to them, the wow factor is off the charts!!!  Susana carries tons of yummy colors to choose from.  Yep, I'm working my way to collecting them all!  Can't have just a couple, I need ALL the colors lol!

One more thing... I've decided that I'm a much better zig zag sewer than a straight stitch sewer.  Food for thought...

Here are a few products I used on this card which are not mentioned above:

Sticky Strips (applied on the back of cut out image for dimension)
ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever (no kidding, this is on my MUST HAVE list)
Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad - used to stamp the image
Tim Holtz Paper Clip - which isn't in the store, but Susana does have a growing number of Tim Holtz products *Here*
Onyx Black VersaFine Ink Pad - I used this to stamp the sentiment on the ticket
Distress Tool - used to rough up the edges of the beach ball

I'm hoping to enter a few challenges which I will post here...

Next up is a butterfly card you won't want to miss!

Have a wonderful (and cooler!) weekend : D

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

Aw Lori my heart goes out to you. Don't you think menopause is a nasty trick Mother Nature pulls on us women. I'm long past it but I get cranky when it gets hot too. Wishing you cool breezes, baring that a nice air cooled craft space.
Love your card, especially her hair.
Hugs
Bernie
