Challenge #69 themed Anything Goes

Welcome to another challenge at Lia Stampz.  I can't believe how fast the summer is going, it's just whizzing by.  Slow down a little so we can enjoy it.  Anyway the challenge is themed Anything Goes.  I like these challenges, I always find them to be the easiest to do.  It can be good to have a structure to guide you such as a sketch but for the most part I find that I am most creative when I can just let loose and do whatever my heart desires.  LOL 

This card was also great to make because I used scraps.  That's always a bonus to use up pieces from my scrap boxes.  Yes I said boxes, I have 8 shoe boxes set up to hold different colours of patterned paper and cardstock.  This image is called "Summer Girl" and I used Copic markers to colour her in.  I'm running out of colours that I can use because several of my markers have run dry and I don't have any re inkers.  I took them to my local craft store but she didn't have re inkers in the colours that I needed.  I don't want to buy anymore because Close To My Heart is coming out with new markers in their new idea book and I'll probably give them a try as they are cheaper than Copics. 

Here's a link to the blog challenge if you'd like to join us.  You don't have to use a Lia Stamp but it's a bonus if you do!  Here's a link to Whimsy Stamps where you can purchase this image. 

I was very kindly informed that I forgot to include the picture of my card.  LOL  I am not surprised as I've been up all night and not functioning terribly well.  Here is the card.  Thanks for letting me know Nancy!

Well, my friend...
It's a lovely description you've given of your card. It would be so nice if there was a picture of it for us to enjoy as well! :o)
