Spring is in the Air

 It has been so gorgeous here in El Paso for the past few days! Beautiful warm weather, a slight breeze and ah.... I was lamenting that indeed it has not been warm enough to get in the pool yet, the weather is good, the water is just not warm enough, although a few more days of weather like this and the pool is surely going to be ready.. So you can call these bikinis or even bra and panties, but either way, Spring is on my mind and I am soooo ready to  get my swim on.

I decided that a little green was in order, for St Pattys day, so....  I made some more with that in mind and decided to play with a little lingerie template too...

I cant wait to try these out!

A CASE of By the Tide

As I am certain I have mentioned before.. I love the ocean, I love being in the water, looking at all the beautiful colors so far below, looking at the varied sea life............... Alas, I currently live in El Paso, so... I have to live vicariously through TV, Great Vacations and well... Stampin

This card is a complete CASE from Amy Celona, she recently had a class in PA (my home of origin) which featured this set and the masking you see here..... I loved it so much, I decided to give it a whirl. Mine has a little different effect from hers, but is very similar and I am still happy with it.... The last minute coral at the top was meant to be a little lighter but, I am still happy with it. I think I may go back and for a re-look at my painters tray from the other day and implement something more like this, somewhere in there... I have been wanting to use the sponged ocean picture a little bit lower in the tray anyway..... Ideally, I would love to use the two center spots for the blue ocean, but I am not really sure how that will look.. More to come.

Ears to you!!

I have seen this set done in color and they look great, but I just think of chocolate bunnies when I see it, what about you? Do you see chocolate or do you see color?

I tried a little spring colors, but they just don't feel as good to me as the chocolate bunnies. I also tried a little mix of dark chocolate and milk chocolate and white chocolate, but I just couldn't get the white chocolate to come out... So.... I went with some caramel instead and I actually think this is my favorite of the three... what do you think?
