Summer Coming to an End

Let me start of my post tonight by sending a Big welcome to all my new followers. WOW I have gane at least 4 in the last couple of days. "THANK YOU so much for coming to visit and for following. I hope I inspire you with my crafty creations. We are half way thru our work week, for me I have a split week, so today is my first Friday, as I am off for the next two days and then I start my week again on Saturday..
I wanted to to show you a few more things that I have been working on over the last few day. First let me say I don't pick and choose my images.  I just goo for what I know and what I like. I have been playing a lot with my Marci and Luka's from La La Land Crafts, They have a Great FB group for fans of these sweet little images. Irina owner of La La Land has started FB group challenges and they have been really fun to play along with.

The latest  FB challenge (actually the 2nd challenge) is "End of Summer" Challenges. I printed out a sheet of 3 cute images that I thought were Great for use of Summer theme. 1. Mermaid Marci. 2&3 Marci with Watercan. Love this image and wanted to color her with several colors for her hair and dress.4&5 is my Sweet little "ukulele Luka. ( I printed him to go with my two Hula Marci that I did a few weeks ago.

Here is my card that I I made for the challenge. I choose the beautiful and colorful "Mermaid Marci". She is just gorgeous. Love her. I actually purchased her last summer, and never colored her up.. I am sure you are just like me and purchase more images than you have had the time to color and stamp. Marci comes in both Rubber and digi and you can find her in the La La Land Craft shop. Mine is a digi, as are the rest of my images.

I colored her with my Prisma and OMS. added lots of glitter glue to her fin and star. Kraft Card Stock from PTI. DP "Echo Park  "Splash " Embellishments are from Jolee's Boutique. Sentiment is from another stamp set. And added some Purple Pearls. and my white gell pen for some faux stitching.

Happy Crafting,
Card Mania- On the Beach
