Dino-Mite Birthday

My nephew just turned 2 and here's a card that I made for him. I love, love, love the Dino-Mite set by My Favorite Things. Since I've got 2 boys and they have friends, it's the perfect set for the plethora of birthday cards that I have to make for them. I stamped the dino in Versafine Black Onyx on Georgia Pacific White and then colored him in with Copic Markers and Copic Spica Glitter pens. Love the glitter pens--very sparkly and easy to use. I'm still playing and learning but think I'm getting a little better with my shading with the Copics. I really wanna play some more and will attempt to do it later since my new stamping room is slowly but surely coming into shape. I matted the dino on Tempting Turquoise and then put it on a Real Red tag. I punched a hole and used one of my Pewter Jumbo eyelets on it tied with a little snippet of Black Gingham ribbon. This is on the Old Olive cardbase on dimensionals. I stamped the Happy Birthday with Versamagic Lightning Black so it also has a little hint of sparkle. Tah-Dah! All done!!!!! Popped the card in the bag with his present and we were ready to go to his party. The kids all had a great time at the party so we had a nice Saturday all around.

Dh is at the park with the kids right now so I'm popping on real quick in the midst of my Sunday cleaning. There just aren't enough days in the week--I hate how work gets in the way of life! But then again, work allows me the ability to have the quality of life that I want so it's all a trade-off.

Speaking of trades, I got rid of my money pit of a car and I'm now the proud owner of a brand new 2008 Lexus RX350!!!! Woooohoooooo!!!!! I'm loving this new car :-) and all the bells and whistles put a smile on my face. See why I can't quit working? First of all, I wouldn't have the money to spend on my stamping stuff and secondly, I'm spoiled and like nice things :-)

Thanks for visiting and I'm hoping to get back to regular stamping soon.

  1. Hey Kathy!
    I'm so glad to see you!!!! Your card is beautiful and you did a great job coloring with the Copic Markers. I don't have any yet, but am seriously thinking about it. I love your new car!!!!! Just looking at it gives me car fever but I'm not in the market right now. My CTS still runs great. I haven't worked in two years, but it nothing like making your own money and buying what you want. Have a beautiful day Kathy.
