Hi all!! Sorry for the wacky title..I know its suppose to be Snaps and Snails and Puppy Dogs' Tails but I just couldn't resist....I'll blame my warped sense of humor on my migraine headache today.
Over the last few days I have been challenging myself to join the SC challenges each day as well as leave comments for the participants. As I have done so, I have noticed several participants using SUO or SUM. Now mind you it has been a while since I have been able to keep up with the latest trends in SU due to a decrease in our family budget and quite honestly I was envious. Well today I am ecstatic!!! I used ALL Stampin Up...maybe mostly old SU but none the less all SU...no ODBD and to top it off..no ribbon, punches or border dies...and I did use eyelets!!! This has to be a first for me!!!
The bow I made out of Haiku paper to match my background. After all, it is a challenge about designer paper, right?.... My paper was a tad dusty since I have hoarded it for so long but just as BRIGHT as ever. LOL!
The clouds on my image were created with the Oval Scalloped punch and sponging with Soft Sky.
The border along the bottom was hand drawn...Don't look to close as I am sure you will find some flaws.
The Summer Afternoon image is so darling and it was a gift from my dear sister Jeanne. Thanks Jeanne!!
Since it has been close to 100 degrees and so humid it really has felt like summer. Before you know it, Fall and Winter will be here!!
Thanks for a great challenge Linda!! Thanks for looking all!! Have a blessed day!!!

This is so adorable Chris!! I love your sketch and of course the sewing always tops things off nicely. Good for you for using all SU. Your image is colored so nicely. I'm a paper hoarder too - I don't know what I'm saving it for. Goofy! :>)

Chris, as I opened this beauty, I thought to myself, "This is such a different card for Chris." And you know what? It's beautiful and I love it! Into my fav's since I have this stamp set. What great inspiration! I love your amazing coloring on this sweet image and your curvy bottom looks fantastic~
Make the most of today, because tomorrow holds no guarantees!
