Happy Birthday


Hello, It’s Sunday at least I think it is.  I have a fun card for you today for a couple of challenges.  My idea began with this great sketch over at My Favorite Things. When I first looked at the sketch I saw a swimming pool. Plus, I just got the new Perfect Pool water stencil from MFT that I have been itching to use. Next, I decided to pair it up with the word Peaceful at Time Out Challenge. I don’t know about you, but there is nothing more peaceful to me than floating around a swimming pool on an innertube. Boy do I miss our pool, especially this summer with the pandemic and all.  At least my little MFT Elephant is enjoying himself on this hot summer day.  I put a light coat of white ink over my first color of Broken China Oxide ink. It really looks great IRL. Still have a lot to learn with Copics but I will get there.

All stamps and the stencil are MFT.

I so appreciate you stopping by, Nanc’
