Sending You Some Sunshine

Hi there. So we are in the dog days of summer here in Arizona. Hot, hotter and I think I'm on fire LOL!
In honor of our forecast of 108° this week, I am sending you some sunshine because we have far too much of it at this point!

When I discovered Karber Digis recently, I immediately fell in LOVE with their adorable images! So fun and whimsical and right up my creative alley! Leslie is one of my new favorite cuties! I printed the image a bit large, so my card is oversized (6 x 5 1/2) to accommodate that error in judgement. I think she is just perfect for sharing my overload of summer sunshine!

My 'Leslie Vacations' Card:
I like to say that I am a Copic beginner with LOTS of training! :)
This was very challenging for me to color with all of the circular images.
Practice will make perfect...this is my Copics mantra!
I LOVE the cute yellow polka dots stamped on the middle paper strip.

 Sparkly Stickles were added to her sunglasses & sandals. 
Diamond Glaze was used to create glossy lenses. FUN. :)
 And don't you just LOVE her little toes?!

Stuff I Used:
Karber Digital Images-'Leslie Vacations'
Pink Cat Studios Digital Image-'Sending You Some Sunshine' Sentiment
AMuse Studio 'Polka Dot Patterns' Stamps
Copic Markers-Hair: E25, E31, E50 / Skin: E00, E01, E11 / Clothes, Sandals, Glasses, Pail, Shovel:

Lemon Divine Twine, Handmade Heart Button - Jane Beljo (janeb74 on Etsy)

To boldly go where I haven't gone yet, I am entering this card into the following challenges:

You have found your calling Mrs. Pickle! Perfect as always. I will trade you some Aloha for some Sunshine as I anxiously wait by my mailbox for an original Mrs. Pickle! Aloha, Terri
