SUMMER FUN....I AM SOOOO READY!

Happy happy Friday!!!  WOW! This has been one busy week so it just flew by!! I have been teaching a class a day so lots of stamping going on, but not a lot of sharing so lots to show you over the next few days! Today however, I am going to share a fun card I made with a digital image from Cheeky Radishes called Ethel - isn't she a hoot?!! Ethel is ready for the summer.....I would setttle for Spring, LOL!!  I had a great  time coloring her, she is too too fun!! Want to do an Ethel card of your own?  Head on over to the site because one you buy her, you get the download and get to start playin' :-) I decided to pair Ethel with my in-colors to make the card really summery and fun.  The flowers are from the stamp set Petal Pizzazz (LOVE IT!!!) and I stamped, cut out, and popped them up on dimensionals, then added some bling rhinestones because every gal loves bling!!  The DSP is the Kaleidoscope paper line, which is very bright and totally reminds me of vacation time.  I added some Crushed Curry Polka Dot ribbon(notice the bow is NOT missing this time, heehee!) and used the sentiment from the Cheers to You set.  I sponged around Ethel with both Crushed Curry and Creamy Caramel to make the sand.  So much fun to do!!!  I hope you like my Ethel card and will head on over to Cheeky Radishes and check out all of their fun digi images and shaped card templates.  There are lots of  digi goodies to check out!!!  Enjoy your Friday -  I am off to prep for my Chicks and Chocoloate class tonight (any class where chocolate is involved is fun, right??!) and a workshop tomorrow so another couple of busy but fun days!! Thanks so much for stopping by, I love ya for it!
