Nova Scotia Bound!
This is for Cindy's (Mothermarks) Teapot Tuesday Challenge! We are headed for Nova Scotia Somethin" about there are no facilities except a lighthouse! The rent is 42,000 pounds of fish! We've got a husband coming to teach us how to fish, a mermaid to show us where the fish are, Barbie and Spider Man fishing poles so how can we miss!
The image was stamped using Mememto Tuxedo Black and colored using copic markers and reinkers! The water was colored using bashful blue and an aqua pen! For the sand I used copics E31 and E33! The flowers are copics R20, R24,and R27! The railing is copic E27 and then lightened using colorless blender! The bricks are a combo of copics C00 and C3! The piling under railing is copic E40! The sailboat is copic R24. The sky is a template (Mothermark) and SU soft sky sponged! The tabs are SU punches! The charm is from an old purse! TFL!
Thanks for stopping by!
Speaking of stopping by! My soon to be 21 year old grandson stopped by unexpectedly this morning! That always warms my heart! Wow, 21 and takes the time to visit his grandparents! Awesome!

Hi, Francie! Just stopping by to check out your new blog, and it's off to a great start! I hope you enjoy the blogging adventure. I love all your cards you've uploaded so far, too. It was great chatting with you on the phone.
I love your beautiful teapot card and am glad you are able to come to the parties. And, yes, it does warm your heart when the young ones want to be around us!
