DUSTIN PIKE CARDS!


Good morning everyone!!

Wow, it seems forever since I entered a post!!! I've been MIA since I came back from vacation.....been trying to catch up with things and not doing such a good job of it. Vacation went a little different than planned....after riding out a storm we got the boat stuck in tooooo shallow water....hit a metal pipe and needed to be towed into a marina and spent the week there! Could have been much worse than it was coz the marina had everything we needed...electrical hookup, hot showers, laundry facilities, pool and private beach. So we ended up making the most of a not so good start, then had to wait for my brother in law to bring our truck and trailer down to the Keys to pick the wounded boat up!!! Now we need to get the propeller and housing fixed! As our fellow boaters let us know......the bigger the boat the bigger the problems!!!

On Thursday we finally got our air conditioner fixed.....whooo hooo!! so now we can sleep with comfort once more.

OK enough of that stuff, onto the cards. I haven't given any credit over the last few weeks to Dustin Pike's fabulous creations, so today it's his day! I love this Wednesday Freebie design and really enjoyed making this card. The card sentiment on the inside says "You can always count on me!!!"

I colored the bird in copics and prismacolor pencils, glazed over his beak and claws with paper glaze. I just couldn't resist turning one of the birds upside down....coz that's how I feel since I've been back home!!!! Anyway, let me know how you like him!

Don't forget to check the other design teams creations and Dustin's blog too!

  2. Ouch on your boat. Yep, the bigger they are the harder they fall, will you miss the rest of the boating season, hard to get them repaired in time to enjoy them for the season, everyone else seems to need their own boat repaired. Anyways welcome back - to us!! Glad you made the best of it. I think that bird upside down on the inside is a scream. Thanks for sharing.
