Mediterranean Moments.

 Hello everyone: As always, I hope you and your families are doing well, keeping each other healthy and safe.


I have a card today made with one really beautiful SU stamp set called "Mediterranean Moments", all 4 images are sweet, this one, with a narrow street with hanging plants and colorful buildings really make me nostalgic about those small Mexican towns on the Pacific coast where my hubby and I used to get lost in the beauty of their simple everyday life.

This is the inside.

And this is what I used.

Watercolor pencils.

I left the inside without a sentiment, I found out it's better to wait till I need the card to stamp one.

I want to play with these challenges.

Double D Challenges: "Buildings"

Thank you for stopping by today, I appreciate your visit and your sweet comments.
Until next time, take care and stay healthy and safe.


PS. That steel mesh on my window was placed to protect the glass from being smashed by golf balls.  The grass you see in the distance is the tee (is this what it's called?) on hole #5.  That particular window is by my work desk and it's been broken twice, very expensive to replace since it's a double tempered glass.  The golfers are not responsible for one red cent and they are not obligated to pay, only once we've been offered by the person who broke our window, to pay half, which was more than we expected, and we happily agreed.  
The golf association here in my subdivision should impose a fee on anybody who wants to golf here, whether you live here or not, but nothing has happened so far, it's really very upsetting.
Thank you for letting me vent.💖

Pampered Pets.

 Hello everyone: As always, I hope you and your families are doing well, staying healthy and safe.


If I remember correctly, the "Playful Pets" DSP from Stampin' Up! came out in the 2020-2021 big catalog and, as soon as I saw it, I just fell in love with all of the doggies and kitties on it, the stamp set "Pampered Pets" was just as cute and sweet so, I bought all of it, I actually got 2 of the DSP, I just couldn't resist it.  I'm not too fond of DSP, most times, the images on both sides of the paper are beautiful and therefore, impossible for me to pick a side to go under but, in this case, the underside didn't have cute little critters so, I felt at ease buying it.

Anyway, I've been fussy cutting the doggies and kitties on this paper and I've made a few cards with it, this one is my latest.  The expression on this cat is the same my cat has when my youngest daughter's doggie comes to visit, LOL!

By the way, I put a piece of clear Scotch Tape behind the cat's whiskers, just so they would be easier to fussy cut, I always reinforce images that I want to cut out with painter's tape but, in this case, I didn't want the painter's tape to show, the scotch tape worked great!!

This is the inside.

And this is what I used.

I apologize for the small font on this post, I really love this font that's called "Dancing Script", I wrote the post on the "large" size but I think next time, I will use the "largest" setting.
