Belated Birthday....

Hello blogging friends. I'm back today with another card, but this time it's a Digital Image from Mo's Digital Pencil. She is called "Two Jill". Believe me, with twin 3 year olds around the house I see this pose on a regular basis, usually followed by a flow of tears!

I needed something to do last night, since I had finished a card which is scheduled to post later this month, and it was late and I didn't think I'd have time to get much done. But in the end, I went surfing some challenge blogs for a sketch and found this awesome sketch on CLP. The DT entries are mouth watering so I decided to see if I could pull something together.

Back in December, when I was helping my daughter through a rough patch in her life, I colored up a bunch of images - most of which still need to be made into cards. I ran across this sweet image and then went digging for some paper. Since I went through my marathon paper clean up a week or so ago, I have a ton of paper already cut into 6X6 pieces. So now I don't have the name of the paper or the company who makes it, and I didn't keep track of the copics I used either. is my card front and my entry into the CLP July challenge...

Here is a close up of my image. I can't believe how much I've grown in my coloring in just a few months...

I always try to repeat some of my design elements on the inside of my card. Of course the paper is a repeat, but I also used more rhinestones around my Marianne Design doily die.

Well that's it! I've had a marathon of a day and I'm ready to retire to watch the Ranger's play against Seattle.

Thanks for dropping by :-)
