Monday's get here SO fast!

Can you believe it's another Monday? Seems like Saturday NEVER gets here, and it seems like it's Monday all the time! lol....



Well, at least we have a little Magic to look forward to on Mondays!



Welcome to another Magical Monday at There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes!



Our challenge is brought to us today by our very talented hostess, Patti Nelson. Patti has given us a sketch to use with any of Nina May's images that we have acquired already. This sketch can be stretched, rotated, flipped, etc., as long as the original sketch can still be seen.




As soon as I saw this sketch, I knew I had to use the "Beached Boat" image. It was perfect for the oval in the sketch! The DP is from my stash, and as usual, I've colored with Koh-I-Noor pencils and LOMS.



I hope that you will head over to TMITA/PCC and grab the sketch! Create your card using any of Nina's images that you have on hand, and hurry back over to enter it in the challenge! You could win something fun!


Have a great week - hope it's Magical!


Patti J.

Hey Patti! Remember me, your long lost friend from California? I'm sorry I haven't kept up with my visits. As you know, I have a lot going on right now and can barely keep up. But I think about you all the time! (Oh, and I will answer your question, but the answer will take a while to compose, so please hang tight.)

Anyhoo, I love the new look of your blog... reminds me of something freshly painted. And green is my favorite color!

Beautiful card! Your water coloring is perfection!

Hugs,
Lisa

Hi Patti!! I have missed visiting you!! Last week was crazy with the snowstorm and lack of power! Thankfully I had posts scheduled. I missed blog hopping though.

Gorgeous scene!! Love your coloring and the scene. Reminds me of spring and winter. Hope our 36 inches melts fast.
