Happy b-day!

This is a quick card I put together today for a birthday I'm pretty sure I missed. I have to double check the date, but I think it's over. Oh well, it's the thought that counts, right?

I received this cute little Changito image in an image swap a few months ago. Those image swaps are so handy for having quick-card fodder. I colored the image with my Copics and layered it on Rose Red, over some dp from Hobby Lobby (cut in thirds, but it's hard to tell with all the stripes), over some Basic Black, and finally over some Rose Romance cardstock. I finished it off with a ribbon and some doodling and called it a day! I'm kind of wishing I had left the sentiment box white, but it's too late and I didn't want to scrap it and start over since I only got two of these images in the swap.

The past few days I've been telling you I would be posting an altered item using my September 3 Little Dreams kit, and well, I haven't done that yet. A few days ago I got an email from Katie, the owner of 3 Little Dreams, saying she would be discontinuing her business and therefore September will be the last month kits will be sent, and also the last month of design team work for me. I have to be honest - I was kind of bummed about the whole thing, and sort of lost my altered item mojo for a few days as a result. I wish her well though, and am sure the closing of this door will open a window for all of us involved.

In other news, I think I'm going to be getting a new digital camera soon! Woot! I told dh I was going to ask Santa *wink* for one for Christmas, and he suggested that I sell my iPod (which I've had for 3 years and never used) and docking station (ditto) on ebay and use that money towards the new camera now. Smashing idea! I can't wait! Does anyone have any recommendations on what I should get?

Stamps: Changito Birthday (Stampendous)
Ink: Unknown
Paper: Rose Romance, Rose Red, Basic Black, Hobby Lobby DP, White (Unknown)
Other: Copic Markers, Black Grosgrain Ribbon (SU!)
