I'm the only child of a very creative mother and talented craftsman father. I'm still known as "Baby Kim" to my mother, even though I'm 30+. I've lived in Hawaii for 9 years and still am amazed everyday by the beauty of this paradise. I'm also the owner of a wonderful puppy who will be occasionally featured in this blog.
Well, the 4th of July technically isn't over here in Hawaii, but likely will be close to by the time most of you read this! But really, it's not over...Monday is a holiday for those of us that are state/federal workers so enjoy the day of (observed) 4th of July! :) So I got to play some more and here's a couple of cards I got done...
1. BasicGrey Challenges - photo inspiration + BG item: I love the colors in this photo and it goes with several other challenges too...I used BG Nook and Pantry and June Bug papers to mat and paper piece the image.
Here's my second card for the day...been awhile since I broke the brayer out but it was like riding a bike, it just came back to me! Also got to play with my NEW copics...love'em! It's also been awhile since I created a scene and gotta say that this one is very special to me...I was inspired to move to Hawaii while in graduate school (after living my entire life in the Midwest). It took awhile to get here, but to get myself through that time I pasted images of Hawaii around my computer monitor...this was before I started making cards otherwise I would have had a bunch of these around instead! :) So here's the challenges I was inspired by for this one:
Well, the fireworks are heating up here so I think I'd better head to my a/c'd bedroom with the puppy to wait it all out. Thanks for stopping by! Oh yeah, be sure to come back by this week...I'm going to be starting a month long blog candy drawing to celebrate my one year of bloggin'! YEAH!
