I'm Back w/ Blog Candy!!

Hello! So this was officially the longest I have been away! Yikes! My family and I went away last weekend to Orlando. We didn't even do any parks. We just relaxed by the pool, it was fabulous! Since I have been back I have been busy with home projects and reading. I go in waves with crafting and reading. Lately I have been on a reading kick. This weekend was the first I have been in my craft room in almost 2 weeks!!

I was pretty excited that I was able to pick up some, ahem...just a few...really...only a few...I swear, of the new collection from Magnolia. I wasn't sure what I wanted to color up first but I figured since Father's day is right around the corner I would make up a fathers day card for the hubby. I was so bummed that I wasn't able to make any Mother's Day cards this year. I LOVE making them because you get all flowery and stuff...but I was so busy during April and May I didn't have time! Wah!

Today I used Edwin Waiting for Fish.




Edwin is colored with Copic markers. I wasn't sure what I was going to sit him on and I ended up using the mini bench believe it or not. In my mind I really wanted him on a dock but I just didn't see me drawing up a dock! So next I thought maybe on a rock...or a log or something. Well I have none of those...so a small bench it is!! I then drew a "shoreline".  Those fabby papers are from MME - "Out of the Blue" from the Lime Twist Collection.  I misplaced my Father's Day stamp...No clue where it may be so I printed out a simple sentiment from my computer.

Challenges:
 Make it Colourful - Cast a shadow
Come and Get it - Fathers Day
Creative Inspirations - Fathers Day
Here Comes the Boys - Fathers Day
Magnolia Stamp Lovers - Anything Goes
Craft your Days Away -Fathers Day


Ok so here is the BEST part!! Remember I said that I picked up a "few" magnolias from the new collection. Well, it just so happens that I picked up a DOUBLE! So guess what? I'm giving it away as BLOG CANDY to one of my blogger friends!  YAY!!!


So here's what you have to do:

Tracy, this is fabulous. Cute Edwin image--I didn't get this one..sigh. Awesme colouring. Loving the way you did the water and the shadows/reflections. Wonderful layout. I love the clean look of your card. My male cards tend to have this look too as I have a hard time with embellishments for them...LOL.

Jan Garber said...

Good luck to you on your challenges! Your FD card is adorable! First let me say that it is so sweet of you to share a stamp! Magnolia hasn't had too awfully many boy images, so I haven't gotten any. (I only have a grandSON) I could really use this one! Which brings me to the second part. My grandson is going camping for the first REAL time this next week and will be "learning" to fish up in Yosimite. So, as you can see, this stamp would be perfect! Next I have to perfect my Copics skills!
