Love You Forever - Creatalicious #98

Hello my friends and happy end of August.  Are your kids all back in school by now?  I hope that means you have a little more time for YOU!  I've had some ups and downs with my caterpillars, but right now all is good. I have about 30 hungry, voracious eaters in my hutch and hopefully that will transfer into 30 beautiful Monarch butterflies in about 2-3 weeks.

Now on to the business at hand and that is the current challenge for Creatalicious Challenges! I almost didn't get this posted. I had to get a new U-Verse Gateway for my TV/Internet and after I got it hooked up, I had lost my Internet connection. I didn't realize I had a new password for it. Duh!

Our theme is "Anything Goes + optional anniversary". You're welcome to join us with the optional as most of the DT did,but as it is an optional, you can also chose not to do it  -  it's totally up to you.  Here is my card.

Sexy Edith - Monthly Challenge - August

Hi my friends.  I was hoping to get on here to do a blog post earlier this month, but last weekend I was out in Salt Lake City visiting my grands and attending a performance of Beauty and the Beast at the Hale Theater that my grand daughter was performing in. She did a fabulous job with her part and we all really enjoyed the whole show. Lucky I was able to visit with my daughter, son-in-law, other grand daughter, and grands son-in-law!  SLC and Provo are so beautiful even without the snow on the mountains. We went up to Sundance on Saturday night to see a performance of The Music Man. It sure felt cold enough to snow up there. We like to froze sitting in the bleachers outside watching the show. It was really good and worth it all too. Came back to rain showers every day and continuing into this coming week.  Hope they stop soon.

It is time again for another Creative Card Chicks post. This is a group on SCS that have a monthly card kit sent out by one of the Chicks to all the other members who then each prepare at least one card to show off to the others.  This month was Paula's (wannabe on SC) turn to be the hostess.
Paula sent us this cute image of Edith from an old set of hers from the Craft Lounge as well as the sentiment that I punched out with a label punch from SU and then I stuck it on a starfish die from Impression Obsession. I popped the cloud die cuts (Memory Box) up on stampin' Dimensionals for some texture and added 2 blue glass dots for fun.  The cardstock I used is SU Baja Breeze and the dp is from Hobby Lobby.

I colored the image with my Copic Markers - B0000; E21, E23, E25 E29, E31, E33,E35; G46; Y13, Y15, Y17.

I have a few more that I need to catch up on, but glad that I was able to get this one in on time.

 I am submitting this card for the following challenges:
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes
Lacy Sunshine - Anything Goes
Come and Get It - Summertime
Dragonfly Journeys - The Sky's the Limit
Great Impressions - Anything Goes
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Anything Goes
