How Old?

Oh how I love The Cat's Pajamas stamps! They can always bring a smile to my face. I created today's card for the TCP Tuesday sketch challenge and this week's Blogger's Challenge.

I stamped the little indians from the "Havin' a Pow Wow" set and colored them with Copic Markers. I paired the image with Basic Grey's Archaic patterned paper, satin ribbon, and Colorbok Metal Dots. I also created two computer generated feathers to tuck behind the sentiment.

Check out Leigh's great TCP Tuesday sketch here. I tried to channel Leigh and create a background for my three little penguins, but it's tougher than it looks. Leigh is a master at it! (bowing down to you Leigh!)

The Blogger's Challenge this week was to create a birthday card...and just how does this card qualify you ask? A glimpse inside the card will hopefully answer that question.

Check out all the other projects celebrating birthdays by clicking on the Blogger's Challenge graphic in my sidebar.

I also want to give a shout out to Nancy W. for tagging me. I'm working on my responses Nancy and will post them soon. Thanks so much for following my blog!

Have a super Friday!
