Mad about masking!


Hello there!  Happy Thursday!  I hope you are enjoying your week.  I am...minus the work part...wink!  Actually, I shouldn't say that, in truth I am very grateful to have such a wonderful job and such a meaningful place to work.  Meanwhile, the weather is fabulous here, so after work I have been out and about in the enjoying those rays.  On Tuesday, I picked up my daughter and her friend and took them to the beach.  It was sunny, fun and perfect!  The card I am going to show you today, reminds me of those to cuties playing. :)

Speaking of today's card...here it is.  Isn't she just the cutest!?!  This is a stamp set I bough several years ago from Pink Cat Studio called Lily on the Beach.  It reminded me of my little one, which is why I got it.  Lily is super fun and there are sooooooo many sets with her and sets with a boy names Billy too. :)  I stamped and colored her and then masked her off and used my new Studio Calico Mr. Huey Burst Mask.   Um, can I tell you how in love I've become with masking!  I've used it once or twice before, but lately, I have been using it a ton!  My fave technique these days.

I made this card with two challenges in mind both of which have the theme of summer.  First is The Paper Players #148 and here is their inspiration photo.  Second is the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #213 and their photo.  These are both super fun and my little Lily fits right in.  I also be entering it into the Simon Says Stamp & Show challenge since this weeks theme is the letter S.  You follow me on that right?!  Summer...Sun... :)  I knew you had it!

I am sure all of you that visit me have tried masking, but if not do!!!!  Thanks for your visit!
