 Hi everyone!  Well I made it through my daughters graduation and party.  It took a lot out of me and I needed about a week to recover.  It took a bit to get my mojo going again and I'm not sure it's totally there yet.  Still dragging a bit.  We all had a fabulous time but I have way to much leftover food.  Good thing you can freeze a lot of it.  We will be having BBQ Pulled Pork for many dinners to come.  

Now let's get to the order at hand...another fortnightly challenge at


Our challenge is "Summer Fun".  We are sponsored by  
A Random Fan.

 I have been given this cute image called "Swing Into Love".  Isn't it just darling!  I colored them with my Copics and added some Wink of Stella to her hair then Glostique to her flower.  I have tried to make it show better in the picture but I have not been able to manage it yet.  I'll keep trying.  

The flowers I got from my stash...I think it was a candy win.  I used my Copics here too to add some color and depth to them.  I also paper pieced her dress.  Since I am making this the 4th of July weekend, I just had to use red, white and blue.  
I am so happy to have been born an American.  I am very grateful to all the men and women who go out to protect our freedom and those who fought to get it. 
 Thanks for coming to visit me and I hope that you will stop by the CWWC blog and check out all the wonderful creations made by my DT sisters.  Have a great day!

So pleased the party went well Robin.

Your card today is beautifully bright and welcoming.

I've noted what you said about a tutorial on the inky sky etc., and will put my mind to it.
