People will honestly start thinking I am hopeless. I am afraid that my erratic posting will last until probably September. Let me explain. I have a BIG project that I am working on and that is my craft priority for the time being. Still can't say what, but hopefully by September or so I can say. Second my husband's vacation is through the month of July so we will be away a huge portion of the time. August he goes back to work and then beginning of September he leaves for 7 months to Afghanistan. So needless to say, my family is my top priority for this summer. This tour thankfully will be his last as a front line soldier. As soon as he gets back, he has a month off and then leaves for 4 months to do a course for a new trade in the Military. This is very exciting for us since he will have done his duty in the front line and can go into a less stressful position. That means that while he is away, I will be preparing our house to go on the market. We will be moving as soon as he finishes his course and gets his posting. So there is a lot of stuff happening in the next year. I will be erratic in posting, but will be doing my best.
OK so now no one can say that I am being lazy in regards to my Blog. On to my Card. This is a DT card from the new Summer and Sea collection from Magnolia. It is amazing. There is so much that you can do with it. I am so in love with every piece of it. In this case I wanted to capture a little boy just loafing by the edge of a pond.
Stamps: Magnolia, High Hopes Sun
Paper: Bazzill, Fabriano Artistico Cold Press 140 lbs, SU Olive, Caramel, Cool Caribbean, Memory box DP, Magnolia DP

The images were all stamped on my watercolor paper with Versamark then embossed in Gold. They were colored in with Tombow markers and Twinkling H2O's. Everything was then cut out. Layers of paper were run through the Cuttlebug and then cut in varying wavy shapes. The layers were taped down, and images were glued and popped.
Thanks so much for dropping by,
