Just Saying Hello

Good morning everyone.....hope all is well with you and yours!! I took the Grands swimming yesterday but that only lasted about 10 minutes. It seems a baby had a dirty diaper that leaked into the pool so they had to shut the whole thing down. What a bummer!! We did get passes for today so hopefully it's all cleaned up and we can try again. Anyway....
I did have a few minutes yesterday before everyone got up to make a card for the sketch challenge on Splitcoast. It's been ages since I've played with one of Roxie's sketches!! It gave me a chance to use the Flower Girl image from Pergamano Stamps that I bought from Jerri Kay's shop, A Touch of Grace.
The image was colored with Copics, glitter was added to the dragonfly, Stickles was added to the flower centers, and the Puffies, leaves, and ribbon finish it off.
Recipe:Stamps: Flower Girls from Pegamano Stamps, Sentiment from Hero Art's Sending Happy Thoughts
Paper: White, Old Olive, Basic Grey's Sweet Threads
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Glitter, Stickles, KI Memories Puffies, Ribbon, Spellbinders Leaf Die, Copics, Round Nestabilities

Thanks for visiting...I'm off to shower and then to the beauty shop for a hair cut before we take off for the pool...have a great day!!!

This is such a sweet card with those pastel colors. Love it. Good luck with the pool, I know our pool is at 95 everyday, like a bath, but wet at least.

Ah Joan, you made a simply layout totally stunning! I really really like this one, you picked up the colours from the backing paper so well that it looks perfectly co-ordinated too. You have such an eye for doing that.

Have a nice time at the pool, I bet the grands have loads of energy. CoB
