Patriotic Jenn & Swimming Belle

Happy Friday!  It's gonna be a hot one today, so I already have the air on and the shades drawn.  I don't expect to do much cooking inside over the next few days, either, so I'll just enjoy the heatwave and the little break!  Today I have some work around the house to do, I'm not a big fan of house-keeping and cleaning and all that crap but it just has to be done once in a while.  LOL  I like doing it on Fridays, though, because then I don't feel guilty enjoying my weekend!

We have a fun new challenge for you today at:

I used 566- Jenn's Heart Framed, a stamp that Megan named for me.  :)  I thought that was pretty sweet, and I just couldn't wait to play with her.  I colored her with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and added Stickles in several colors.  I added the "usa" stickers from my sticker stash, some ribbon from SU! and some gemstone stickers.  Paper is digi paper that I picked up free from Folded Paper & Printed Pixels.

Next up - we have a new challenge for you at:

I am also entering this into the following challenges:

MilkCoffee: Summer Sun
 Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes

I used 159 - Beach Hut Swimming Belle, I printed the image twice so I could paper-piece the hut with that cool beachy woodgrain paper (from MME), then I colored Belle with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.  I used elements from the paper to create little embellishments and attached them with foam dimensional dots.  Tied a ribbon around it to finish it off.  Looks like she's ready for a busy day at the beach!  I might be visiting her at some point this weekend if it really gets to be over 100 degrees, as they say it might!  Have a great weekend, everyone - stay cool! Peace.
