What's the word, bird?
Our flight does not leave till 11.50pm tonight, and I'm all packed,   Yes, that's all I'm taking for 3 weeks!  I've been really frugal on what I've packed... and it's been a raining afternoon, so what better thing to do than to do some colouring....  First ...
First up, a scrapling with PP and a card piece sitting on my desk. The Tim Holtz bird was coloured with Mermaid Lagoon and Abandon Coral distress inks and fussy cut. The sentiment comes from a Hero Arts set. I stamped it, and then cut the sentiment up to fit on my mini card.

More Pink Lemonade Mood Board

I sponged on some distress inks in Cracked Pistachio and Abandoned Coral and then used some white Colourbox ink and a homemade stencil to add my white circles. Added a gold die cut and the matching sentiment from Winnie & Walter. Added a few Pretty Pink Posh sequins.

It's the beginning of the month so it's time for a new challenge at Die Cut Divas.   Our theme this month is "JUNE BUG" - whatever that means to you. I LOVE when we have Bugaboo as our sponsor as I ADORE their images.    Here is my card for today Such a cut...
Such a cutie... Just saying Hello to his little bug friend. I printed out the image and used Copics to colour the puppy. The background was coloured with chalk inks. I used a Spellbinders die to cut out the image and my sentiment is embossed using a Hero Arts sentiment.
