Catch Some Rays



This is me in my dreams ... tanned, thin, and bikini-clad would all be nice, but for me, the dreamiest part would be to relax in the summer sun with a stack of books. The sunbather and her various accessories are all part of My Favorite Things' new Catch Some Rays set. The papers are from the Bloom & Grow "Grow" kit by My Mind's Eye. I did my coloring with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.

Some MFT happenings:
* Have you seen the Bubble Bin this week?
* The new stamps are now available. The sets are sold individually, or for the best value, the Buy it All Bundle includes four new sets and the cutest polka-dot ribbon nest and the One-Click Collection includes just the four new sets. Discounted pricing is available for a limited time.
* Check out the Design Team Tips & Tricks for the new sets in the How'd They Do That sub-forum.
* This week's sketch challenge and My Favorite Challenge have both been posted. Check out all the details -->HERE<--!

Thanks for stopping by today! I'm off to catch some rays today :)

This is gorgeous, Amy!! You always use just the right colors & add just the right touches. Yeah, I'm pretty sure the last time I got to just lay in the sun reading books Duran Duran was #1 on the radio, lol!

Tanned and thin - that is a nice dream!:) LOL! What a fabulous fun card! Love those colors and the pretty patterns!

Amy Johnson said...

This is gorgeous! I love it! I love your colors and papers, and how you popped up certain images. I had to laugh at your opening sentence: 'this is me, tanned and thin' I have often wished MFT and other stamp companies wouldn't always have that 'unrealistically thin female image' and show a real body for a change, or at least, with a little more meat on the bones. LOL!

Silke Ledlow said...
