Thank you Beary Scrap Girls

*Update 9/6/10:  Yayyy!  I made Top 3 at Wild Orchid Crafts!!!!  Thank you SO much!  I am giddy with delight!  Their lovely badge is on my sidebar .. sigh .. still smiling!!!  :)

Hello Friends!  Well, this is my last card as DT member for The Beary Scrap ... my goodness gracious ... time sure flies doesn't it?!  I have had such a wonderful time working with these lovely women, and enjoyed myself tremendously seeing what they create each week!  Thank you so much to Kimm for having me on your awesome team, Susan, Gini, Jamie and Patricia for always giving me support and lots of giggles!  You girls are such a true delight ... and I will miss you tons!

So this weeks theme at The Beary Scrap is "Dog Days of Summer"!!!  Okay, well, that threw me for a short bit also as Susan had mentioned in her last post.  hehe!  But when I saw this Tilda with her little parasol, I immediately wanted to use her for this theme.  She looks like she's going to a beautiful garden picnic or something on a Summer day, or going to sit by a lake to watch some swans ... hehe. 

And then I used some vintage K&Co journaling papers in the background, since for some reason ... Summertime always makes me think of long letters being written between friends and lovers also.  I think it's because when I was younger, I'd write my friends during the summer since we all headed on different vacations for the entire 3 months.

I am also entering this card into:
1.  Stampin for the Weekend :  Anything Goes
2.  Wild Orchild Crafts :  Make it Sparkle

 The Fun Stuff:

Papers:  K&Co
Medium:  Prisma Colored Pencils

Thank you so much for visiting me and I hope you have a WONDERFUL day!

Now I have come over here a few times already to drool over this card and just haven't had the words manifest themselves in my mouth just yet. I saw this on ebay and was DEVASTATED, I thought if I complimented you enough about it, you'd send it to me :( Just kidding!! I love it though!! Soft browns and pinks with little pops of baby blue, your colouring is mesmerizing!! I can't wait til we get together some day and you show me how to make magic with the pencils, I will show you what I know about inks, it will be good times!! The shape around the image is fabulous, love the flowers and those neato stamen stems are fabulous, love the laces over the punch and well, did I name off everything? Yeah, I think I did. Really, the colouring here is friggin fab, now I have to go because I am going to enlarge the pic to drool over this some more, lol!!
hugs, stephanne
