Color Throwdown #100 and Peachy Keen Challenge

Color Throwdown is having a wonderful celebration for their 100th challenge. The colors are:


Aren't they wonderful? Wait until you see all the prizes they have to give away and the beautiful cards at all the design teams blogs. I was thinking about a card to do for Peachy Keens Challenge #32 which is Summer Destination and when I saw these colors I knew just what I wanted to do. I am, or was, a swimmer and I love to go to the beach and swim in an ocean or a lake. My favorite place to swim when I was in college was in a quarry. I learned how to do synchronized swimming in high school and loved to practice in the deep cold water of a quarry. Boy, do I wish I was still in that kind of shape.

This little cutie is from Paper Dolls Cricut Cartridge. I uses all SU card stock and stamped her face with one of the Peachy Keen wonderful face stamps. I wheeled her fish part and the shell with the Cornelli Lace wheel and used a glitter pen on her top and the sea horse. I used my Gypsy to weld two shells together to make the card base. Other supplies I used were a white gelly pen, SU chalk, and SU ribbon.

If you get a chance be sure to stop over to both blogs and join in the fun.

Thanks for stopping and remember how much I love your comments,

Sincerely,

Linda, this is so cute! I have never seen a little mermaid like this. I used to swim in a quarry too---but not synchronized!!! My mom used to do that and I know she was disappointed I didn't learn, but I just wanted to swim for FUN!!! Thanks for celebrating with us!

Omigosh, this is just adorable! Love that darling mermaid!!

I used to swim in a quarry as a kid ... till I found out how deep the water was! I thought it was just a plain ol' swimming hole ... didn't know it was like 5 miles deep, lolol! Cured me of swimming in the quarry, I'll tells ya that!

Have a fabulous weekend!
