May card #7

I did this card just for fun and it happened to work for some challenges as well. I colored the image from Meljen with new markers I got the other day and used some really old pattern paper. It's so old I don't know who the manufacturers are.


The card meets the following challenges:

Flowers (on the pattern paper) - CCEE Stampers
Anything Goes - Shelly's Images
Digital Image - 2 Sisters
Anything Goes - I Did It Creations
Anything Goes - Truly Scrumptious

I used old DCWV pattern paper, Prima flowers, American Crafts gem brads, Glitz rub-ons, Kelly Panacci stamp, and CTMH ink.

A Killer Plot by Ellery Adams

A Killer Plot (A Books by the Bay Mystery, #1)

Finally finished a book yesterday!  I enjoyed getting to know Olivia a little at a time. She is an interesting, but different protagonist and I liked the change. The setting sounds absolutely amazing! And although I'm not really a dog person, Haviland makes me want a standard poodle for Emma.  For a more complete description of the book and to read more reviews go to Goodreads
