Happy Birthday Lion


Happy Tuesday to you, hope it's been a good day so far. It's a rainy day here, so in my book that means a good day for crafting. I hope to have some time for that later, but first we have to take our Bella to the vet to have her stitches and bandages removed. I know she will be happy about that! Thanks for all the well wishes from my friends out there, they mean a lot to me!

I do have a card to share, one which I created as a birthday card for someone who is celebrating today! I used the Whimsy Lion on this one. I think he makes a grrrr-eat birthday image! HA!

I used the sketch from this week's Sketch Saturday with some fun Lime Rickey papers. I went with aqua and orange for the color combo. My image was colored with Copics. I've embellished simply with eyelets, a tab of ribbon, and some buttons. This card needed to be more masculine and I think buttons are a perfect accent on masculine cards. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps set Snippets 1 and was punched with the word window punch.

This card also fits the challenges at:
One Stop Craft: Metals
Stamp with Us: Birthday
The Pink Elephant: Aqua

Today is also my day to post over on the Whimsy Inspirations Blog, so if you hop over there you will see this card as well as a couple others I've created over the year.  They are "wildly" fun! And I would also like to welcome you to visit our brand new Whimsy Stamps Gallery! Anyone can register and share Whimsy creations, find ideas using our products, and see lots of inspiration with a touch of Whimsy! We hope you'll stop by and check it out!

Happy Stamping,
