BLOG HOP - Girly Girls & Macho Men - July 12-13

to the
If you arrived by way of Marie Berquist's fabulous blog,
then you're in the right place.
If you think you may have missed some along the way,
 there's a list on the bottom of the post or you can
begin at the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog.
You must comment on each and every post to be eligible for
some amazing prizes....
I couldn't quite decide on Girly Girls, Macho Men OR both
and then quickly ran out of time.
With two grandsons - Macho Men should be the
obvious choice, BUT I don't get a chance
to do Girly Girl - so decided if I had to choose one
then Girly Girl it is...
Hope you like it.
I was in a summer, beachy mood and since I had so
much fun creating a monochromatic card for a
previous hop using Serena the Mermaid, I opted
to select a Michelle Perkett digital image -
How perfect for Girly Girl!

Eva's colored with Copic Markers and
highlighted using Sparkle N Sprinkle's
using the Sakura Glue Pen to adhere the glitter.
She's further "glammed" up using
stick on pearls from SU
and rhinestone bling from ZVA Creative
with a little touch of lace.

 The scalloped circles were die cut using Spellbinders, 
Grand Big Scallops LF249
and the embossing folder was
LifeStyles Whimsy.
Glittery cardstock compliments of DCWV
and their Citrus pack.

Hope you've enjoyed my "girly girl" and the hop.
Don't forget to check back on Sunday to see 
if  you've won a prize!!!!!
