Happy 50!

I made this for my cousin who turns 5-0 this summer. I love this beach scene by Technique Junkies. It makes a great card for any man in your life and it's easy to color as well. I just sponged some Tim Holtz distress inks on it and then I made a sun by making a mask and sponging on the yellow/orange. I decided to go by the one sketch which is why I cut them into panels.

Happy Birthday Tonia!


Tonia and I have been pen pals for 25+ years. Tonia lives in Australia and I live in NC. Back in 2005, we met in Las Vegas face to face after writing for so many years. I haven't seen her since then but I hope our paths across some day again soon!!

When I saw this image by Impression Obsession, I knew right away I was going to have to get it because Tonia's dog, Taggart, is a Westie (who is white) and I had to make her a card using this image.

I actually colored 2 separate images of this stamp and made one into
a card and one I put in a frame I found at Hobby Lobby.
I colored each one using my Tombow markers and water.
