Smile!!!



Here is the last of the squigglefly.com images that Holly sent me to play with. Isn't she just the cutest little thing? Believe it or not, this is actually a birthday card for my uncle. I had every intention of making a masculine card. Really, I did. I started with a Bordering Blue card base, and then it all went awry. lol! Did I mention he is 6'2, a hunter, fisherman, and retired army officer? This should be right up his alley, no? lmao. Ah well, he'll love it because it's from me. That's the beautiful thing about family. :o)

While I was coloring those diamonds on her shirt, I thought of the Print Pattern background stamp by Stampin' Up! I thought it would coordinate well, and then I stumbled over this diamond pattern ribbon in my stash while I was looking for a white satin ribbon. Score! Diamonds galore! Hey, that rhymed. :)

And I just realized I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the card. It's cute... it says, "Laugh!!! This is your present!" hee hee.

Don't forget today is also a CBC Challenge day. This week's challenge is to make a bagalope. I didn't play along this week, but if you decide to play be sure to link your creation to Courtney's blog for a chance to win a little prize! Check out the links of the other CBC Challenge Chicks for some great inspiration, too.

I also want to say thank you to Amber over at So Many Colors, So Little Time and my toddler mommy friend Merry at Random Thoughts of a Confessed Stampaholic for awarding me the Kreativ Blogger Award. Thanks so much for the honor, ladies. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it!
