It's Your Day !

     This is a card which celebrates anything and everything, but mostly lets the recipient know that I'm thinking of them.  I suppose it could be used as a birthday card but is has so much more potential with the sentiment written that way!  :-D

I found the sketch over at Cheerful Sketches.

     I used a combo of ProMarkers and my polychromos pencils to color this fun image which happens to be the freebie from the Progressive challenge at Sasayaki Glitter.  I used stitched dies from Die-namics to cut all the pieces.

     The blue ribbon was in my stash and the bow is one of those I make by the dozens and toss in my stash for future use.  This one was white until I dyed it with a ProMarker.  I wanted this to be as CAS as possible, given the layered look of the sketch.

     We're halfway through the week and the weekend will be here before you know it!  I'm thinking about running away this weekend -- taking some time away from the computer, away from blogging, away from crafting, away from the fur babies -- ooops, I may have to rethink that.  They both glared at me as soon as they read that last part.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

I adore this image and you colored him up nicely. The ribbon bordering your panels is very pretty. Getting away for the weekend sounds good to me but I am sure those fur babies would not agree. LOL Whatever you decide to do, have a lot of fun.

Love that little guy AND your card! So cute and fun.
Have a good weekend. It's always good to get away - just don't tell the fur babies what's happening next time.
