Tiddly Inks - Treats of Summer

Hi everyone, how is your summer going so far?  I feel like it is flying by, of course, but I've had a lot of time to enjoy the family and just being at home.  I've started to catch up on things around the house that always get put off during the school year and getting these things done feels great!  It helps relieve some of the anxiety and stress that hang over me during the school year.  Better than this though has been spending time with my family, especially in our pool.  We go out and swim around for a little while and then take a few moments to sit on our deck when we are finished.  We have the most magical view and it is so relaxing just to take a few moments to enjoy what we have.  Last night I sat out a little longer by myself and listened to the birds, watched the turtles and fish jump out of our pond and mostly just took a moment to breathe.  These moments are far and few between in this crazy world we lived in and taking them in reminds me of how beautiful the world can really be.

Speaking of summer leads me to our challenge at Tiddly Inks today, Treats of Summer.  To me just being able to enjoy the summer is a treat.  I am lucky enough to be able to stay home with the kids and enjoy those moments that would otherwise be missed if I had to work during the summer as well.  I hope some day they grow up and say, Remember when mom did......"  Keeping this in mind I used the Wryn image, Beach Babe on my project today.

Materials Used:
Copic Markers
Spellbinder's Grand Oval and Scalloped Oval dies
CM Square Punch
SU Circle Punch
Wild Honey Distress Ink Pad

I hope you can join us in our challenge this time around.  If you do don't forget to use a Tiddly Inks image, Christy has a lot of summer cuties that are just perfect for this week's challenge.  Just stop by the challenge blog and you'll see some examples on the fabulous cards made by the rest of the Tiddly Inks DT.

Have a Great Tuesday!
Thanks so much for stopping by,

  1. I want a pond! I made the sambo take me to a local castle that sells cakes and pastries just so I could sit outside and watch the waves on the Lake and the fountain that they have. :D

    I absolutely LOVE this card. The sun really makes it stand out and of course your gorgeous coloring still is my fav. :D
