Not much explanation for these--they were quick and simple cards using some images I had colored a while back. Sometimes I just want to color and not make a whole card. I was trying to use up all of those extra images I had finished so I could color some new ones. Have a happy 4th of July!

Next up I have a card I made this afternoon with a beach theme. Yellow and green are not your typical beach colors, but I wanted to pick up these accent colors in the background. I used my new cheapo colored pencils on this image (120 pencils for $20). They don't color as smoothly as Prismacolors, but they still have a nice look to them when finished.
The last picture is the card I made this evening. I decide I wanted to use my Copics a little bit and dug through all my images stamped with Memento ink. This one jumped out at me.
Thanks for checking out our creations! I hope you have plans for a wonderful Independence Day. I'm very excited that my in-laws are coming to visit tomorrow and staying until Monday. I'm sure the boys will be up extra early in the morning asking what time Gramma and Pops will be here. Have a good evening!
Now for the after--this is what it looked like by lunch time after the pool guys put the new liner in this morning. Of course the water level shown is about 3:30pm this afternoon.
It's looking great! I took a close picture of the side so you could see the liner design. The pool guys will be back on Monday to finish the liner. Once it's full of water, they've gotta cut the holes for the jets or aerators or whatever you call those things.
Since the boys were bouncing off the walls with excitement over the pool this morning, I didn't really have much of a chance to make anything too special. I did have a watercolor ocean sheet that I had done several years ago with my watercolor crayons, so I mounted it to a piece of cardstock just so I would have something to show you.
Not bad, but I plan on using a little more creativity at some point this week. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
