ATC's & Cards With Attitude

and the theme is
Anything Goes!

I used Marilyn form Sassy's Movie Madness line.
I love this image and have wanted to use it for a long, long time!
Honestly...I had her colored months ago but just hadn't found the right thing to put her on!
I found the flowers in one of my jars and thought that the combo of
light and dark worked with the shading on her dress!
The sentiment I printed up a long time ago and found it in my stash.
Figured it worked!
Hope you have a wonderful Friday
and a FANTASTIC weekend!

Proud Parents

Whew it has been a long, long day!
But it has been worth it. oldest step-son graduated from the Tucson Police Academy today!
We started out at the 8
with a slide show of all that had been happening the last 17 weeks.
It was pretty cool to see some of what they went through!
Some of it was pretty funny!
Then we had a few other things through out the day
and ended up with the ceremony at 2.
It was beautiful.
Lots of good speeches and seeing the group
take their oath was pretty special!
Here are a few pictures...
now remember the camera adds 10 pounds! LOL

We are so proud of him!
Thank you for letting me share this with all of you!

Today I have a card to share that I made using

This is such a sweet image...with a cute expression.
I have been trying to practice my similar color shading...
I did it opposite my flowers with the light at the edges and I added
a few extra strokes to make it not as blended.

Same Old Song and Dance!
You must make something to do with song, dance music....etc...

Here is my card:

The background paper was a jumble of many things...
I used a very stiff vellum paper that had gold music notes on it...
I used about 8 different colors of ink and then some clear embossing powder
heat set it which gave me the shinyness!
Of course then I covered it up with the image and the flowers! LOL
