My Time... Gone Fishin'

Happy Sunday everyone!  Hope you all have been enjoying this long Memorial Day weekend.  I am up to my ears in crafting and apologize for getting my post up late.  So let's get to it. 
When Irina and Eric debuted the new Summer Collection to the design team I was so excited.  So many cute images in so short a time.  When the new DT debuted each of the new images I was so inspired and awestruck with their creativity in bringing the new Lukas and Marcis to life. 
So for my card today I chose Fisherman Luka.  I think he is so adorbable with his fisherman hat and fishing pole.  He's on vacation on his own tropical island and can't wait to get down to the ocean to fish for his dinner.  The background is a digi stamp from Make it Crafts and I thought it would be a perfect backdrop for Luka.

I kept the rest of the card pretty simple as I had that pretty cool background.  When I finished coloring Luka's outfit I waited till the last minute to color his hat.  I asked my mom what color she thought I should go with and the first thing out of her mouth was blue!  I was totally in agreement and glad I did.  It really contrasts with the rest of his outfit, but it also matches.  I really enjoyed working with him.  Here is a close up of this cutie:

You now have a chance to purchase Fisherman Luka or any of the other Summertime Collection at the NEW La-La Land Store.  And if you hurry over you can take advantage of the Memorial Day sale going on.  Click HERE for more details on how you can receive a 10% discount on all orders over $50.  Don't forget to upload your creation to the Customer Gallery.

Alrighty my friends, it's been such a blast creating and sharing my cards every Sunday for La-La Land Crafts.  Looking forward to the new Design Team, and all the changes that will be taking place.  I hope you keep coming back and getting inspired.  You never know when inspiration will strike!

Mahalo Irina and Eric for the wonderful opportunity to create with your wonderful images.  You both have a wonderful line and I am so happy to have been a part of it.  Looking forward to what happens next for you and your collections.  Mahalo to everyone on the DT for your support and inspiration.  And to the new DT, Congratulations ladies, I know you will rock and inspire us with your creativity.  I'm looking forward to it.

And to you lovely La-La Land friends, MAHALO for your lovely comments and for helping bring these cute images to life with your creations.   Until we meet again...

Hugs,
Leanne
