Fun in the Sun with Pink Cat!!!!!

Happy Thursday everyone!!!!

Gosh this week has flown by in a whirlwind of activity!!! Izzy and I went to Michaels and Archivers yesterday, and today we will be going out to lunch with Jason and then to Target and Hobby Lobby. My mom is throwing a party for my aunt this weekend and needs a ton of stuff picked up for her! It has been crazy trying to get everything she wants, but Izzy has been in hog heaven! She loves to ride in the car and it was the first thing she asked about when she woke up yesterday. It was so crazy!

We went out to the park yesterday and walked around, too. (Thank goodness there was no bunnies around! Lol!) We walked her around and the poor thing was so sad when we got back in the car she was crying! I guess she just loves the outdoors!

Well today is the day everyone!!!! Are you excited! It is the release of the new Lily At The Beach set from Pink Cat Studio! This set is so much fun and all the images and sentiments are fantastic! I know I will be using it all summer long! So without further ado I introduce you to Lily At The Beach!

And here is my card to honor her introduction!



Don't you love her in the towel! Reminds me of when I was a kid and would rush out of the lake, completely blue claiming that the water was warm as I shivered uncontrollably! LOL! I can attest that laying in the sun, wrapped in your towel was the best feeling in the world after a dip in the cold lake! Anywhoo, I started my card by first finding an image of a pair of sunglasses on the internet, blowing it up and printing it off to use as a template. I then traced it and cut it out of black card stock and some DP from Stampin' Up! I made sure to leave some uncut at the top fold so that it would fold in half. I then used my nesties to cut out flowers for the corners using a matching DP. I finished off the front by drawing some white sun lines on the glasses and stamping my sentiment from Lily At The Beach, coloring it in and creating a tag with some blue paper and some string. For the inside, I started by stamping Lily wrapped in a towel from Lily At The Beach by Pink Cat studio on white card stock and colored her in using my copics. I then cut her out and put her on one side of my glasses. I cut another piece of white paper and placed it on the other side. I completed the card by stamping my sentiment on the left side and drawing in some sand and beach debris! A fun and fanciful card!

Now it is time once again to check out the DT girls wonderful creations!!! They are so talented and creative! And thanks once again to Tori for joining us this month!
Now go get your stamps! LOL! Thanks everyone for stopping by! Smiles!
