KLM Designs: Release Day

This cute little guy is Ryan the Frogcatcher and he is available today at KLM Designs. I colored him with prismacolor pencils and OMS. I added a little bit of shading with blue shimmer chalk. I die cut the image with a classic rectangle nestie and matted it onto Navy cardstock die cut with a scalloped rectangle nestie. The background paper is Just Like Dad from The Angel Company. For the horizontal strip I matted the patterned paper onto navy cardstock that I punched with a border punch and then a added a strip of Magic Mesh that I have had in my stash forever. The "Happy Birthday" sentiment is also part of this release and comes with Ryan. I printed it out and then cut it with a double ended tag die. I punched two pieces of navy cardstock with a 1/8 inch hole punch and then punched them again with a 1/2 inch hole punch to get those cute little circles on the tag. I then put my brads through the holes of the circles and the die cut and adhered the sentiment to my card with foam tape. The main image is also mounted with foam tape. Don't forget to stop by KLM Designs today to check out the new releases.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! We had a very relaxing, non-stressful day just hanging out at home as a family. I cooked steak on the grill and made homemade potato salad and we went to the farm stand and picked up some fresh corn on the cob and a watermelon. I cut up some fresh strawberries and blueberries and we put cream on top--my red, white and blue dessert. It was a big hit with the kids. It sure was yummy. We were so full we never even cut the watermelon. I am really looking forward to that. It is one of the biggest watermelons I think I have ever seen. The kids insisted we had to buy THAT one. It's a good thing they weren't charging by the pound! That thing weighs a ton.

Have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by.
