C4C43, IC238 Thank You

Happy weekend everyone!!!

Hope you have something fun planned??? We'll be relaxing this weekend!!! I'm still trying to get caught up on laundry, cleaning and all the other fun things you can think off :)!!! We invited some friend over for the afternoon and if it doesn't rain will hang out at the pool!!!

We are a bit off schedule these days and with the scorching heat I always love to take a nice afternoon nappy...LOL!!! No wonder we are off schedule right!?! Anyway, it's after midnight and I'm right awake..so what a girl suppose to do....stamp of course...wahooo!!!



I used the awesome layout from the C4C43 Sketch (I flipped it sideways) and combined it with the IC238 ~ The Bicycle Muse. I was inspired by the color of THIS purple helmet.

The gorgeous hydrangea is from the new Hostess Level I Set that will be available in the new SU catalog...isn't it gorgeous!?! My sweet SU friend was kind enough to let me ink some images up so I could color them!!!

I inked the image in Memento Black and colored it with these Copic Markers ~ V15, V17, V09, G21, G24 and Colorless Blender. I added some Dazzling Diamond Glitter to it. The DP is from the BasicGrey Kioshi Collection. My White CS was scored and the Lavender Silk Ribbon is from this store!!! I finished the card off with a matching Button, some Scrapper's Floss and the Silver Pearls!!!

Have a wonderful weekend and thank you for stopping by today!!! Hugs ~S~

You are amazing Silke...you have the most stunning way of showing off your designs around an image...I swear I believe your are my favorite designer ever...I take a lot of what you do and try to put your ideas into my designs too. You have really been an inspiration to me, as well as a good cyber buddy too. Thank you for that!
