A Watery Day….


By the time you see this post, my family and I will be getting as wet as one can be!! Yayyyy… we are on our mini-vacation trip and having loads of fun at the water park!!!  We heard there might be a chance of rain today and in the end we figured… as long as there isn’t lighting… who cares!!!  We will be wet either way!!!  My kids LOVE water parks and though I’m not a huge fan of wearing a swim suit… I do have one I can wear and not feel like I’m FLABbergasting everyone!! Hee Hee  And… I’ve lost 30 pounds since I lost wore it so, I’m thinking maybe… just maybeee… I’ll feel better in it this year than I did last year.  Smile


Today I figured since it’s going to be an “all about water” day, I’d share a card I made quite awhile back that I hadn’t yet posted anywhere.  One… I wasn’t real sure I liked it (jury is still out on that) and two… I’ve been super busy featuring the latest sets from Gina K Designs.  THIS too is a Gina K Designs set from Asela Hopkins called “Make a Splash”… which we WILL be doing today as well.  Winking smile


My card begins with Pure Luxury Turquoise Sea.  I layered on some white and a layer of DP I found in my stash.  I used another piece of the Turquoise Sea and cut it out using my Labels 9 Nestabilities and adding some Tim Holtz Distress ink, Shabby Shutters to blend around the edges.  I stamped my image on White and used my Scalloped Rectangle Nesties to cut it out.  I again added some of the Shabby Shutters ink to the bottom portion and then threw in a few drops of Diamond Stickles to appear as water bubbles.  I colored my image with my Copic markers.  At the bottom I added my ribbon, a bit of twine and a little fish charm I found amongst my embellies in a drawer. 


I hope you are having a great day and if you’re getting wet, I hope you too don’t mind it.  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop by tomorrow as I’ll be hosting the Mix It Up Monday Challenge over on Stamp TV.  It’s going to be an easy one and you won’t want to miss out on a chance to win some FREE stamps from Gina K Designs!!!  *smile*
