Treat Yourself!

Happy Saturday everyone! It has been sooo hot here that I needed to make a card that was cooling. What better image to pick for that than this cutie patootie here?



(click to enlarge)

She's from squigglefly and you can see her here. I colored her with copic markers and chalked the grass and sky. I ran a quickie glue pen around the edge of the scalloped border and then sprinkled on some glitter.
The words were computer generated and punched out with a nestabilities die. I left the die on while I sponged on some blue ink.

Here are the copics I used to color.



If you can believe it, Squigglefly added a bunch of new images last night! Crystal has some new ones up and a new artist has joined the squigglefly team too! Those of you who got the free download of Little Joey By The Seaside that Teresa Ward offered on her blog recently will be glad to hear that she's got more wonderful drawings at squigglefly!
I'm almost finished with a card using one of Crystal's new images and will have that ready to show you tomorrow!
I hope you have a wonderful day and stay cool! Thanks for looking!
