Nature's Way

Hey everyone! Today's post is going to be short and sweet. I have lots to do and I'm going to try to get most of it done before the sun heats things up too much! It's supposed to be a scorcher today as it has all week long. I hope you are all staying cool and drinking lots of water.

I am re-building my stash of birthday cards and today I used an image that someone sent to me. I think it's from Whipper Snapper but I am not sure.

(click to enlarge)

It's colored with copic markers and I chalked a little bit of yellow around him. Stickles were added to the sprinkles on the icing. The words are computer generated and I didn't write down what font I used, but I think it's ck becky.

I think it's a cute card, and it would have been good for a male or female birthday if I had kept the colors a little less girly. I should think of that BEFORE I make the card!

We did get the bandage off of Riley's foot and she's doing pretty good. She still holds her leg up a lot when she walks but I'm sure it's still a little sore. I'm going to try to go take her for a walk as soon as I get this posted.

When I get back I'm going to get ready to take my best friend out to breakfast. I called her the other day and told her that all of our conversations during the week are quick little "how was your dayS" and we need a chance to just get together for an hour and really talk and enjoy ourselves, so I invited her to breakfast!

I hope you all have a wonderful and day, and thanks for looking!

Oh what a cutesy card. Love the paper & cs you used. The glitter. And PINK! ;-)

Glad to hear Riley is on the mend. Oh dear, I just now remembered that YOU are missing toenails.
I guess Riley simply wanted to be a little more like her mommy, huh? How sweet is that! RITCMOL

Cute! I love WhipperSnapper & I love it that they carry stamps by Shelly Comiskey (I used her digital graphics b4 I knew they'd turned her work into stamps). The colors are great for that image, Holly.

Cute card! Enjoy your weekend!

This is adorable, you need to do a coloring tutorial one day, cause your coloring is awesome.
Poor Riley, my heart just goes out to her.
When me and my girlfriends get together we have sleep overs, and we do manicures and pedicures on each other, talk all night long until we pass out :).

Hi Holly!
Hope your breakfast was pleasant! Glad to hear Riley is free of the bandage, she'll be chasing squirrels again in no time!

Lovely b'day card, colored wonderfully! And you're right, it is a Whipper Snapper! Totally adorable!
blessings, Maria

Hope you enjoyed your girlie chat and glad to hear that Riley is on the mend. Animals hide it when they are ill so when we know about it they are really bad. Glad you took her to the vet quick.

That is a great image by the way. I love cup cakes. Don't have a cup cake shop here. Hmmmm, maybe an business opportunity looms. ...

This is adorable!! I love finding stamped images that friends have sent, it allows me to play with images I normally sometimes would not buy. ;-)

I love how your colored the mouse. And the colors are vibrant and "girly" yes. It's wonderful that you have a friend to call and talk with. Hope you had a great breakfast.
