I hope I'm at the beach when this is posted.  Seahorse Habitat set is a Doodle Pantry June release. Our Ants in the Pantry Challenge #6 continues...join us!

CAS.  I added an extra layer on the gold seahorse and scallop for added dimension. I'm entering my card in the Die Cutting Diva's Challenge #219 - National Aquarium Month.

Ahhhhh....I could smell, see and hear the sounds of the coastal waters as I was making this fun card.

Less is best sometimes.  I didn't want to subtract from the beautiful pre-colored scene.  It came together so quickly and easily, but I hope it look like it took me a long time to the person I send it to...haha

It's June 5 and Doodle Pantry is having some lovely and fun new releases.  I chose one of the images from Seahorse Habitat.  Ants in the Pantry Challenge #6 is still in progress.  Come join the fun and for a chance to win a $GC to the store.

Peaches are FINALLY in!  Nothing like leaning over the sink eating a peach while the juice runs down the arm.  Humm...I say that about fresh, summer, tomato sandwiches, boiled peanuts, and watermelon.....is this a Southern thing!  lol

I'm into dies a lot this week.  The Mother Hen Eggie is from Kadoodle, the chicken wire die is from MFT, and the idea/casing from Steph. I massed produced 5 of these..lol  The hardest part was figuring out how to get it too look like it was popping out of the fence.  I should have had a little dry corn for the photo instead of the flower...haha

A2, white highlighter pen, watercolor pencils, .01 black pen pop-ups for dimension on nose and wings

twine, font made in Silhouette Studio

Ahh yes, I'm back to walking and exercising again....actually feels good.  I'm starting a little late in the mornings due to playing in my craft room, but discovered a way of staying cool while walking .....running through the sprinklers of neighbors yards...haha  The neighbors don't mind....wish I had thought of this earlier...lol

I bought this Die-namics My Favorite Things quilt die (bought much cheaper) after seeing Cammy's cards.  This is my first attempt. Pretty self explanatory.  The "Just a Note" is a little hard to see, but in person, it's quite easy.  When you cut, it will automatically make 2 cards.  Great for quick cards!

Yup, I yearn for the coast!  I plan on a trip by the end of this week.  Hubby will stay home and tend the house and puppies.  The first of June is "girls beach time"...a tradition I will continue to follow even with my husband retiring.  He'll probably enjoy the peace and quiet of me being away...haha

June 1 at Doodle Pantry means a new Ants in the Pantry Challenge..#6.  There will be some new releases on June 5 so "stay tuned". Enter the challenge for a chance to win a $GC and more if you use a Doodle Pantry image (not just a sentiment).
