Live Laugh Love

Hello everyone, I hope you are enjoying the weekend.   It's still hot here but the nights are more comfortable.  I'm so looking forward to Fall and cooler weather, it's my favorite time of year and after a record breaking hot summer, it will be even more welcomed.

I have a card to show today using whimsical stamps that I love, designed by by Marja for Kico Stamps.


The background was created using Distress Inks and stencils.   The whimsical faces from KiCo's Diverse Stamp Plate 73 were painted with Distress Paints, cut out and attached.  I drew the bodies first using a pigment pen.   Live Laugh Love is a freebie from the Craft Stamper magazine that I cut after stamping.

Thanks for stopping by,
Shirley

A gorgeous card using these unusual stamps from Marja. I love the colours you've used too. We've been having a run a good weather here in the UK recently. We're hoping it continues for a while longer though. Have a great weekend.

Beautiful work Shirley and I love the way you have put the images together and added the free flowing bodies which suit the feel of the design, and such pretty colours too. x

Nice work with the stamping and adding the bodies. I like the way you have coloured the hair, and the choice of colours, quite an unusual combination.

Hi Shirley long time no see, bet I have missed loads so will spend a little while scrolling and looking.

Just back from holiday and how I miss the weather. Not the best summer this year for us and my tan is fading fast. Lucky you having a heat wave may it last well into the Autumn.

Love your make ... they look the best of friends, actually they remind me of my two granddaughters, Amber and Lauren. The hint of lilac contrasts beautifully with the background colour pallette.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and so jealous of your weather.

Warm crafty hugs from Shirl x x x

So beautiful how you worked with Marja's designs... Love the colours; the whole card has such a great colour-flow!
At the moment here we have a week with hot weather, but they say next week the temp will go back to round 25 degrees, so that is oke. Must say I enjoy it, because it is only for a short period, but my sleeping hours went to 6 hours max.... Enjoy your sunday!

You're so good at using stencils in your background, Shirley! Gorgeous, creative, artistic card! Fall is in the air here--a cool down this week & maybe some showers--so nice!

Your girls are really lovely and I like how you've given them extra life AND style with the bodies you drew Shirley.
Beautiful card.
It is hard to believe it's September already but as you said cooler temps are most welcome. Here in Virginia we will have to wait awhile for that to happen ;-)
Happy September oxo
