Rough and Tumble Billy!

Happy Monday everyone!!!!!!

Hope last week went well for you! Mine was incredibly busy, but I am happy to say that I am almost done with our master bedroom! One room down a whole bunch more to go! LOL!

Well Izzy has been a jabber jaw all last week! I can't get her to be quiet! In fact she has become a phone addict! Now all day long, all I hear is that she wants to call Daddy, Grandma, Papa, Aunt Jess, Aunt Heather and Aunt Tracy. And then I can't get her to get off the phone! Poor Jason had to tell her bye 3 times before I could get her to say goodbye. She just loves to talk. Although having her eat ice cream while on the phone really helps to shorten the conversation! LOL!

So today is the big day! The first day of sneak peeks for the new release over at Pink Cat Studio! And can you say total cutenesss!!!!! I mean come on!!!! They are so, so adorable!!!! Melissa has outdone herself with this release! Billy is such a boy in this set, playing all sorts of sports and loving it! So with out further ado, I introduce you to Sporty Billy!


I am sorry but that little dog is the most adorable thing I have every seen!!!!!!! How could he be any cuter! I love the ears flying by and the wave under the surf board is perfection!!!! Melissa did such an excellent job of catching the feel of the wind in this image! And guess what, you can own him in just two more days, because Sporty Billy is being released this Wednesday, June 10th!!! How exciting!!! Anywhoo, I started this card by first stamping my Surfer Billy from Sporty Billy by Pink Cat Studio on white card stock and colored him in using my copics. I added some liquid applique to the wave to give it some froth! I then mounted it on some white, green and dark green card stock and following this week's Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge, layered on white, green and dark green card stock along with DP from Luxe. I did slightly alter the sketch to work with my image. I finished up my card by adding some ribbon and twine along with a Karen Foster charm and a few buttons! I really wanted to go with a eco-green colored card, something not so traditional. I hope you like it!

Now it is time to take off and check out the rest of the amazing DT's creations! And amazing is an understatement! These girls are fantastic!!! And please help me welcome the fantastic Cyndi Bundy as our guest designer this week! Her work will definitely knock your socks off!!!!
Don't forget you still have one day left to grab Melissa's adorable blinky to enter into the contest to win Sporty Billy! Details can be found here! Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don't forget to come back tomorrow for day two of our sneak peeks! Smiles!

Hey, a little birdie told me it's your birthday?! So...Happy Birthday!

Dude, your surfer card is, like, so cool! ;) I like the pattern paper you chose, looks tropical and the stripes like cabana furniture especially with the twine and buttons. I hope you put a lot of sunscreen on Billy because that red-haired type burns easily, lol.
