Soakin' Up the Sun on Celebrate MFT Day!

TGIF!!!!!! I've never been so happy to see a Friday in my life - holy crow - what a week!! Both my oldest son and I came down with a case of Strep Throat (add Tonsilitis as well to my diagnosis) - geesh - serves me right probably - I had just commented last Friday to one of my friends that my family had made it thru the winter with exactly one trip to the Dr. and then BAM! - we all get sick - LOL!! Andrew is MUCH better thankfully - he's been back in school - I am still having some issues with my left tonsil - but the infection was pretty deep in it - so I am hoping it'll be all better over the weekend. So anywho - that at least explains why I've been pretty quiet this week - I did manage to get my blog hop post up (and still managed hardly any typos in my feverish fog - LOL) - but it feels good to have a bit more energy to be stamping this morning!! This is my card for Celebrate MFT Day as well as Cindy's MFT sketch challenge this week - you can view Cindy's awesome sketch here - I did have to flip the sketch in order to get my Who's Those Girlies to be floating in the right direction! ;) I used the "Hit the Beach" set for my card as it is MUCH rather what I'd be doing today - I know - it's the first day of Spring - feels like Winter and I'm making a card about Summer - LOL - go figure - a girl can dream though, can't she? The card really started with the image - I had been wanting to do some skin color combo tests on the new coloring paper coming soon to MFT (STAY TUNED - you guys are gonna LOVE this stuff!!!) - and let me just say - it just goes to show how really awesome the Copics blend on this paper. Skin tones can be tricky to blend - and they blended beautifully on this new paper!! It was so much fun to color WTG? in different skin tones - after all - that is what makes this world beautiful and she is our "every woman", kwim?? So anywho - I stamped my girls at random angles to make them sort of look like they are lounging around the pool - hmmm...do you think they are gossiping?? Must be - I know that's what we do at our neighborhood pool - LMBO!! I used patterned paper from the 2008 DCWV Summer Stack - I punched one of the orange slices out of the paper with my circle nesties to use as an embellie to display my sentiment on. I cut a couple of leaves out of the paper as well. I added some little ribbon accents to the image as well. Thanks SO much for stopping by - hope you all have a wonderful Friday and that you'll swing by the MFT forum and Celebrate MFT with us today!!

Candice I love this card. What colors did you use for the skin tones, I am stuck on E00 and would love some different shades.
