Sally Loves the Water!

Hello, friends!

Thursday already!  Where did the week go?  I've been busy working on cards & decided to share two of them today since they both share the same theme....water!  Both are images from Sassy Cheryl (my favorite digi's).  I've had the inner tube image for a long time & colored it up many times but the umbrella image is new.  I was actually lucky enough to win it!!!  If you like Sassy Cheryl's digi's, you are probably familiar with Sassy Cheryl's Neighborhood on FaceBook.  I happened to notice one day that she was giving away a free image of your choice to one lucky gal if you would comment on which of her images was your favorite.  Which is like asking a chocoholic which chocolate in the box is their favorite! You love them all!  I did decide on the snowmen selfie though.  If you have never seen it, head to her website to check it out.  Three darling snowmen taking a "selfie" .....nothing cuter.

Back to business!  Here are today's "water" themed cards!

Couldn't help it....the gingham was just sitting there tempting me to grab it.  ha ha 

Tried a new technique with my sky on this one.  I cut some scallops along a scrap piece and used my marker to create the clouds.  Which worked great for the first half of the card until my template became soaked from the marker & started to bleed into my sky.  Not to give up on my great invention, I grabbed a piece of acetate and glued my template onto it, trimming the acetate to follow the template.  Now when I lay it down, there is no more bleed thru!  The plastic stops it! Problem solved!

Back tomorrow with our QKR Stampede weekly challenge!



  1. These are adorable! Having a friend win a prize is just as fun as winning one yourself. Especially when the win produces something as awesome as your little sweetie and her dog in the umbrella. Not to say the her in the inner tube is just as special. Love them both.
    PS Nice clouds!!!

  2. You go girl! Fabulous clouds and inventing! I have an acetate cloud template from Rosie's Roadshow that's my fave. I haven't tried markers though! Darling, adorable cards Sherri! LOVE!

  3. Okay, this is just too much cuteness in one place! First of all, how fun that you won that darling digi! And I do mean darling! It would be so hard to pick out just one. I really LOVE how you colored it. And your second card just stuns me! Amazing cloud background and you're so clever how you made it. I had a cloud stencil which worked beautifully and now I can't find it. Did I give it away? Or maybe I reorganized one too many times. Aside from the clouds, your water is fantastic! It looks so real! What a great summertime image this is! LOVE both these cards, Sherri!

  4. Two wonderful cards Sherri, love these images you have used, my fav is the bottom one the smirk on her darling face, made me laugh and what a brilliant background.
