All Creatures...

I have come to a serious realization. I have decided that I'm finally getting old. I watched every single night of both the Republican AND the Democratic National Conventions. I am posting early tonight so I don't miss the Vice-Presidential debate. My day is not complete unless I can listen to George Stephanopoulos, Diane Sawyer and Robin Roberts every morning while getting ready for work. And feel that I must watch the weather report. What's up with that? Have I finally lived long enough to become my mother? Okay...maybe I'm not *officially* old yet, because I still don't have a bowl of ice cream before I go to bed. Sorry...I had to get that off my chest. I feel better now.

I almost decided not to post this card. I LOVE the image, but what I had in my head didn't exactly come out on the paper as I imagined. Don't you just hate it when that happens???


The stamp is All Creatures . It's such a sweet image...and I will admit that I didn't do it justice here.

I stamped the image on watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored with Tombow (water based) markers and a damp paint brush was used for blending.

I added a touch of Yellow Stickles to the star for a bit of sparkle. The sentiment is an old Hero Arts stamp that I think has been discontinued.

The cardstock is Prismatics Stormy , Baby Pink and Baby Blue . The ribbon is May Arts Silver Grosgrain .

Short and kind of to the point, I know. But I'm going to make something quick for dinner and get positioned for the debate. I'm crossing my fingers that Sarah does well!

Thanks for stopping by. I will be back tomorrow morning with a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT for you! Until then.........

I love the fresh colors and snowflakes on this card. The image is just adorable - I love it all.
I need my GMA fix in the mornings too - it doesn't feel right without hearing that in the morning. I'm older than dirt now, but I never did do the ice-cream- before-bed thing, I guess I just wasn't raised right?! LOL
