We have a beautiful sunny weekend to enjoy here after storms rolled through. The grass is so green and the sun so bright - I love this kind of day. I'm happy you liked the dogs on my last post. They are so cute.  This is my alcohol ink card that I love how it came out. I used a technique that I learned from watching a video by Loll. It is the inks dropped on aluminum foil and the paper smooshed in it. She used Yupo and I used glossy but it worked just fine. The flower is Ragged Daisy by Poppy Stamps the I used a Spellbinder die to cut the opening.  I colored the daisy with Copics and stamped the sentiment with a Stampin Up stamp. I am entering the challenges below. The Paru challenge is new to me so I hope you can pop by and visit. Be kind to one another.
