Another Birthday

Hello-

If you haven't tried video crafting with a friend I highly recommend it, even if its only for an hour or so.  For me its been tremendously helpful with the doldrums I had been having due to the stay in orders.

This card is going to the two challenges that inspired it: Tic Tac Toe  (right column punny sentiment, masculine and punched shape) and Simon's Wednesday Challenge - Animals.

My bloggy friend Leslie sent me some stamp offs of goats along with their coordinated punny sentiments.  I can't remember the illustrator I tossed the information in a fit of organizing. LOL.



The card is going to my BIL, he and his wife raise goats, so this could get a chuckle.  The image is copic colored, the sentiment is punched using a Creative Memories double punch - one for the sentiment and one for the mat.


                  


Thanks so much for visiting.

I mean, how perfect that Leslie had these goats and you have a BIL who raises them? That's so nice, so you didn't have to buy the set. You did a great job coloring the image, Cat, and laying the image and sediment panels aslant for extra interest!! I'd love to hear how your video craft sessions look. Do you each video chat while working on your own things or does someone lead a technique and you all work on it? I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like to know more about how it works. Take care and keep on avoiding those doldrums ... hard to do!! Hugs, Darnell

He is darling, and funny... and I'm sure your BIL will get a chuckle, too... as long as you leave out the 'old goat' part!

This is such a fun card - and beautifully coloured too! I'm sure your BIL will love it. I agree about your video crafting - I have been doing online classes for the first time and I can honestly say I love it! Thanks for playing along over at TicTacToe this week!

Oh what a perfect card for your BIL! Your coloring always amazes me, Cat!

OMG, it's so cute and you did an amazing job on this card, Cat! Love how you placed the image and sentiment on opposing slants. Perfect for you BIL!! The set is Art Impressions. I've only made one card with it so far, shame on me, and I love the set so much. You know how it is when you have so much NBUS, sheesh!
