German Phrase of the Day: Sein wie zum strand gehen = Let's go to the beach! When I first started playing with this little Cooper, I was in love! His little tummy is just SOOOO cute! How can you not love a little guy looking up at you like that?
This is the first card I made with my new Beach Bum set. I had so much fun coloring him with my Prismacolor pencils, and after I finished coloring him I knew I had to come up with a fun layout. I love this cuttlebug folder, and happened to have a piece of white already run through it, so I swiped my Tempting Turquoise pad across it to make lovely little bubbles for Cooper to swim in! For the matting behind the image, I cut strips of Tempting Turquoise and Taken with Teal, then cut alternating angles on the edges. I like the 3D look it gives. I also liked putting my word window punched greeting onto a punched circle - this was a card of trying new things for me, and I like how it turned out. Of course, with Cooper, how could I NOT love it?!?
