Dilly Beans, Gingerloft, Altered Alice, & Sweet Stampin'

Wow - Friday again!  :)  Yesterday was my hubby's birthday.  He turned 41 and my angelic 17-year-old daughter keeps saying "wow - you guys are getting OLD."  Isn't she precious?  ;)  Anyway, I made chicken picatta for dinner and then we went over his mom's for her homemade key lime pie for dessert - YUM.  We are also going to his mom's for a little cookout on Sunday, so that should be fun.  I am hoping to squeeze in a bunch of quality craft time between now and then.  I have a bunch of old stamps and stamp sets I'd like to try to sell, so I'm going to try to figure out what is the best way to do that.  If you have any ideas, throw 'em my way!

Anyway - we have a new challenge for you today over at:

I used one of our newer images, Mermaid and Seahorse, colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.  I added freckles to her cheeks and used lots of Stickles.  I added gemstone and pearl stickers.  I made the background by using blue glittery acrylic paint and a stencil on Bashful Blue cardstock.  I would also like to enter this into the:

Gingerloft Challenge - Under the Sea

Next is my card for the:

The beautiful fairy and dragon image is from Crafts and Me, sentiment is from Birdie Brown.  I colored with Prismacolor markers - I like how it came out by coloring only the main part of the image, the black and white background is kind of striking, isn't it?

And last for today is a bookmark that I made for:

I used Alice from Just Some Lines, and I just printed out the quote from my word processing program.  DP is from Crate.
