Hi everyone! I have been working on a project for someone and had to rush to make a card for my blog! I also have been going through my birthday stash of cards, so today's card is a birthday card!

Isn't this cute? This is using the Elephantastic image from Squigglefly and it's one that Crystal drew! I hand drew the balloon and string which is why the balloon is a little wonky on the right side!
I can think of a lot of things to say with this image. I think it's just so cute and it's a steal at 99 cents!
Squigglefly has added a few more images and they're making some changes in their web site. They now have an idea gallery that you can browse for inspiration! I love seeing what others are doing and it's great having them all together in one easy to get to spot!
I used an EK Success border punch and then made some little dots all around the border with a white gel pen. In the middle of coloring my elephant my warm grey markers went empty on me and I had to finish up with cool greys and putty. I almost pitched it and started over, but I was running out of time and I didn't think it looked so bad that I should throw it away. What do you think?
I added the ribbon at the last minute because it looked like it needed something. When I look at it now it looks like a fourth of July card with all the red, white, and blue! I guess it could be a birthday wish to the good ol' USA!
Thanks for all the well wishes for Riley. She's doing really well, and I am really surprised that she hasn't tried to chew at her bandage at all. We can take the bandage off tonight, and I'm sure she will be glad!
Well, I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday and thanks as always for taking time out of your day to visit me!
