Whimsie Doodling on this Wednesday

 Happy Wednesday everyone!
I've been playing around with Melyssa Connolly's beautiful images again,
just because she never ever releases anything that's otherwise. ;)
Above is Cafe Lizzie, who makes me really look forward to Fall and cooler weather!
Look at that java, mmmmm...I'd be up all month with that amount. teehee!
I used some Basic Grey scraps as well as the no-border technique that I just love.
I hope you all aren't tired of seeing me do those. lol!

I used this adorable sketch from I{heart}2stamp:


And then, I pulled out yet another one of my WD images for this card (a freebie!):


Isn't she just perfect for back to school with that sentiment? heehee!
Not sure if kids would agree, but I know some parents are counting down to the first day of school. ;)
I made this one with the no-border technique as well, paired with DCWV papers and this sketch:

Mel and company are still doing an amazing job over at Tuesday Morning Sketches!
Love this fun layout and embellishment possibilities. :)

Thank you all so much for coming by, I am off to celebrate our youngest daughter's special day:

Happy 6th Birthday Lily!

Have a super Wednesday, everyone!

I love your no borders look - it gives your art a "pop, zing, wow!" factor. Seeing your unique style in my little blog follower area is something I look forward to every morning.

Happy birthday to your little one!

Gorgeous cards, and I love your coloring! I have tried that technique with no success, so I am in awe of people that can pull it off so perfectly! Thanks for playing along at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week!

Absolutely fantastic card Joni! I admire those who can do this no line technique, I've not been brave enough to try. I love the papers and the sentiment, too. My kiddos go back to school on Monday. Not really looking forward to Brendan being a senior this year nor having Hollyanne going into to HS! Ack!!

Please give Lily a hug from me! I missed telling her Happy Birthday on our special day. She's sooo beautiful Joni - look at the gorgeous hair.
