Cards in Envy - Feeling Sketchy!

For this week's challenge at Cards in Envy, we are to "Get Sketchy". I like this sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch  from January 2018 and this is the sketch I copied. I water-colored the flamingos using Jane Davenport watercolors.  You can see the challenge here. All cards must fit into a standard size envelope for easy mailing.

Summer will be here soon ....

This swimming pool set by Avery Elle is just the cutest !!  I saw this video done by Julie Ebersole and you can see it here to show how she makes the actual rafts "float" around. It's surprisingly pretty easy if you follow how she did it. All stamps by Avery Elle. I printed the "pool" paper from online and then printed it off from my computer.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Create and Make - Anything Goes #21
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes, Optional Blue
Dragonfly Dreams - Here Come the Girls

It Moose be Your Birthday

 I got a new Brother Scan n Cut #2 and I absolutely love it!! I have only had the "crank-style" Big Kick to cut with my dies so this is wonderful!!  I don't have to buy anymore dies - this just scans your stamped images and cuts them out. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No Drama Llama

As You Like It - Favorite Animal and Why

I've  loved llamas for a long time. They are just so
cute, cuddly (ok, maybe not that cuddly but they
look like that to me) and they seem to be
pretty friendly whenever I've been around one.
And llamas are all the rage right now,
wouldn't you say? They are EVERYWHERE!!
