Dilly Beans: Summertime

Happy Friday!  Today's weather is totally appropriate for our new challenge at:

I am also entering this into the:

Let's just say I'm very thankful for central air today... we are cooking a prime rib dinner for Jeremy's mom's birthday.  I thought tomorrow was going to be "the hot day" - and it is, expected to be over 100 - but today is going to be in the 90's.  So.  My card uses one of our new mermaid images, #557 - Kia Mermaid, and she's colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and some Stickles.  My paper is from MME, I love how some of the 6x6 pads come with smaller sized "embellishments" that you can cut out and use on your cards.  I added a fat ribbon and some gemstone stickers - I'm sorta-kinda addicted to gemstone/pearl stickers, if you hadn't figured that out by now.  ;)  Stay cool, my friends!  Peace.


  1. Absolutely adorable, Jenn! Love that mermaid image, the fun DP, your design, coloring, & embellies! :^)
