Slowly but surely.....

 ....... the leaves will be on the trees and the lazy hazy days of summer will be here. Oh how sweet that sounds.  I played today with a new stamp that I got from Pointer Scrapbooking in Markham! Thank-you Heidi....this guy is so cute! I tried something a bit different for me. This girl loves her prismas and distress inks, but this time I stamped my image in versamark and then sprinkled a little black Ranger embossing powder, heat set it and then coloured with Tombow markers.

 It is a bit hard to tell from these pictures that I actually did the hat 3D, and also popped up the tire. I really like doing 3D cards. Adds a little bit of a challenge for me! The hardest part to doing this card, was not adding glitter.....LOL!
So hurry spring and lets get going with the lazy days of sunshine and relaxing evenings! Have a wonderful Easter weekend!
