Happy Wednesday Everyone! Boy is it busy at blogland for me. Today I have several posts for you with so many fun images. First, I have a sneak peak of a new release for you from Wags n Whiskers called Sip n Sun which will be available on Friday!! I colored it in with prisma color pencils and gamsol. I am so sorry that the photo seems so dark. No sun here in this neck of the woods lately!

I decided to make a criss cross card and used some of my fave dp from SEI. The gorgeous prima is from Stamp and Create and is available here.
For more sneak peaks, please visit my dt sisters: Christa, Debbie, Jeanette, Jacqui, Karen, Lacey, Michelle, Nikki, Sharon, Tina, Melanie Holtz and Renata van Miltenburg

We will also be having sneak peaks tomorrow!! You won't want to miss the fun...And on Friday...we will have a blog hop!! We hope to see you there!

Since today is Wednesday, it is also time for another Inky Impressions Challenge!! This week the team is challenging you to create a summer time card or project!! I know I am looking forward to summer, so this was a fun challenge for me.

Our weather has been up and down like a seesaw. One Day 36 degrees F and the next 56 degrees and 85 the next. Then it plunges again. Weird weather for sure!!

Anywho, enough babbling....

Here is my take on the challenge:I used this week's Friday Sketchers Sketch for my creation. This image is called Shy Little Nikki from Inky Impressions. The dp is some Basic Grey Sultry. I used the lace on the left to create a flower behind the image.
I think the lace and the distressing give this creation a sort of vintage flair.

I hope you can join the Inky challenge! You need not use an Inky Impressions stamp to join the challenge, but if you have them, we would love to see them! If you do join the fun, please leave a direct link here.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
Crystal, Beth, Angela, Cheryl, Domi, Jackie, Kim D, Kim Y, Pam
