Bloggers Challenge #65: Watercoloring

Stamps: Whipper Snapper
Paper: Imaginesce; Lavender Lace; White; Baja Breeze
Ink: Black Staz On and various reinkers for coloring
Other: Nesties; Crystal Effects; Star Dust Stickles; Polka dot grosgrain; SU! brads Card Measures 5"x7"



Happy Birthday Pia!! I used this challenge to make a card for Pia's birthday...which is today! We are having lunch together later, so hopefully she'll get this before she comes here.

Isn't this B-day paper from Imaginesce ADORABLE?! I don't know if you tell from the pic, but both the stripes and sentiment paper have glitter on them. Actually I think that one side of all of Imaginsce's papers have glitter on them. Funny thing about having a blog is that you realize your own patterns that may go unnoticed otherwise. I truly never knew how much I liked and used Imagisce stuff!

On a personal note, we have not told anyone yet, but we added another member to our family yesterday...Meet Guinness! "Big" sister, Penny (left) is not quite as excited about Guinness as the rest of us. heeheehee
As you can tell, Penny thinks she is above sitting on the floor like a common dog!

Have a Fantastic Friday!

What a great card! You will cherish your German Shepard. We had 2 when my child was small and both were so protective of all of us while being friendly unless they were worrie about one of us. Even then they looked to us for guidance. You are so lucky.
