VC_Rocks Blog Hop #3

Hello my blogging friends, I hope this post finds you all well and happy. This is our 3rd round of 4 hops on VC_Rocks Yippee!!  The next one will be sometime in August, we will keep you posted. You most likely came from Kimm's blog.  www.artfulsentimentsbykimm.blogspot.com

Her project was wonderful wasn't it! Besides being the moderator of VC _Rocks Kimm is an amazing artist.
If you would like to start from the beginning go here http://www.vcrocks.blogspot.com
Wow, what a month! I have loads to tell you, like my first season of grapes are sweet and ready to be picked & very yummy I might add. June was not as much of a scorcher as last year and my plants are surviving (so far). My daughter had a milestone  birthday, she turned 25. Yikes that means I am 25 years older  too lolol !!!! We had another round of fantastic swaps at VC Rocks, my goodness my VC girls are so very talented. I have tons of new and beautiful ideas to share with my customers.
Yet, last month my good friend passed away suddenly. Life is bitter sweet at times and we learn to take the good with the bad. Today is a good day and I know more good days are coming. 
I'm going out side and take a few pictures of the garden while I still can. Summer is well on its way as we are going to have 100 degree weather all weekend long Yikes!!!!. I better make sure my green babies are watered hehehe.
Because it is going to be so hot this weekend I thought I would make a few "Cool" cards for you . I know the Bikini Top and Board Shorts are not a new concept, but have you ever seen them done in the Black Magic technique? You can see this amazing technique on Sandi MacIvers blog www.sandimaciver.com. I bet you can find the Bra and Panty pattern on SCS as well.  I hope you like them.
Once you finish looking at my blog you will want to go on over to Tina's blog where you will see another amazing artist. I assure you, you will never be disappointed with her creations.www.tinataves.blogspot.com
Stay cool where ever you are this weekend. See you next time.

ADORABLE. What a cute card combo. I love that you used the Black Magic technique, it makes those cards just shout out at you.

Patrica, they are too cute. I must confess I do not know what Black Magic techinque is. How do you use it or make it? Anyway I love your cards, and thank you.

I love tending my "little patch of dirt", too, Patrice! Thanks for sharing the photos and the inspiration to create the bikini & shorts with the Black Magic technique!

I absolutely love this Patrice! I have never tried this technique, never saw it in a way that made me want to try it but you've fixed that! Thanks for sharing your talent with us!
