It's been awhile...

Aloha and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all you wonderful mothers out there!!!

It's been awhile since I posted a "just for fun" card (i.e., not a DT sample), but I got one done today. I won some super cute CC Design digi stamps from All that Scraps and couldn't wait to use this one for a "hoping for summer" card! It's been very rainy and stormy here in Hawaii and I'm ready for a bit more regular sunshine. I colored her with copics and created sand, water and sky with copics too. Here's the other challenges I was inspired by for this one:

1. Bee Crafty - under 5s birthdays + digi
2. Catch The Bug Challenge Blog - anything goes
3. colourQ - Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Peach Parfait, Tempting Turquoise, vanilla
4. Copic Creations - coloring sky/clouds
5. Crafts and Me - swirls: got some embossed on the yellow
6. Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog - happy birthday
8. Freshly Brewed Challenge - beach/summer
9. Karens Doodles Challenge Blog - one for the kids
10. Mojo Monday - sketch
11. Stamp Something - digi day
12. Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog - childhood memories
13. There's Magic In The Air - birthday

Thanks for stopping by!



I LOVE your for fun cards! This is a bright, sunny summery card. Love the colors and pic looks so great with your new camera (likin' the background for your card pic). AND, your coloring is perfection! Is that new copics or are you still waiting for 'the' package? Thanks for the Mother's Day wishes and thanks for making it possible for me to be a mom! Your the bestest daughter I have!
Love, SAM aka MOM

ps can't wait to see more 'for fun' cards!
