Hi everyone! It seems like I have been out of the loop for a long time!

We were gone for almost two weeks. Had a wonderful time in Florida visiting friends and family. Every year around the first weekend in June we have a family reunion. This year about 150 reletives and friends attended. Lots of fun, but I'm always glad to be home.

When we arrived home, we found that our computer would not connect to the internet. Finally got it fixed after four days.

Just wanted you to know why I have not been creating lately! It's good to be back!

This is a card I created for three SCS challenges:




Inside card.




1. CC277 found here, is hosted by Betty (gbedwright) challenged us to use Dusty Durango, Bermuda Bay and Curshed Curry. Thanks for the wonderful color combo, Betty!

2. Cindy's "mothermark" Teapot Tuesday was to help Silly Sydney solve her romantic beach problems. Thanks for the fun challenge, Cindy!

3. Anne Ryan's Queen For Today challenge honoring Queen "Kittie" "Kittie 747" Fabulous Choice, Anne! WaHooooo! What an honor to case Kittie. Kittie is the "Queen of Scene" and colors beautifully! Here is Kittie's card that I chose to case.

The image from Rubbernecker's,
 Under the Sea was stamped twice. I brayered the sky and sea then used a template to sponge in the moon! The sand was added using a stipple brush. The image was colored using copics, cut out and popped up. White acrylic paint was added for sea foam. The frame was cuttlebugged and then cut out using a Spellbinder's Nesstibillitie! TFL

Thanks for stopping by! Hope things will be back to normal soon!
