Create with TLC Monday

I've been away from my craft room and blog quite a bit lately.  Summer is in full swing around my house and we've been going to the grandchildren's ball games and supervising swimming in the pool.  I have missed crafting so I spent some time over the weekend creating a few cards to share with you this week.  Paulette, owner of Create with TLC has been feverishly adding items to her new store and here is the first card I would like to share with you this week:
Challenges entered:
Inspire Me Fridays - anything goes
Our Creative Corner - favorite Tim Holtz technique


I just love this sentiment and thought it would go great with this Sugar Nellie image, Purrfect Playmates.  I wanted to try my hand at something different, so I embossed and inked a Sizzix folder and then used a window diecut from Spellbinders/Our Daily Bread designs.  I cut out my sentiment with a Spellbinders die also.  I added diecut grass and leaves to heighten the impression of "peeking" through the window from the outside.  My image was colored with Copic markers.

Thanks for visiting, I love reading your comments and appreciate all your support!

Hi Marsha,

This is just too sweet! The image and sentiment are lovely and I really like how you inked the embossing folder to create that cool brickwork! Sounds like you are enjoying the start of your summer. So happy you joined in the fun with us this week at Our Creative Corner.

Hugs,
Linda
