Puppy Love ♥

Happy Thursday! I have some good news to share with you. My hubby has passed one of the three tests to get his truck driver's license. Yippeeeeee! It's a big deal cuz school was never easy for him. Sooooo, only two more to go - yay hubby!!!!!!!! The other good news is that I've lost 10 pounds! Yay for meeeeeeee lol! I really need to rejoice in that, but part of me knows that I could have lost even more during the 12 week First Place 4 Health Session. More times than I'd like to admit, my stomach won! On the other hand, it IS the Holiday Season where there are goodies around every corner, but I STILL lost 10 pounds. Yippeeeeeeeeee!!!

It's time for Try It Out *T* at the SCACD blog. This month we've been given the "anything goes" challenge, or free style. Lately, I've been making a number of Christmas cards, so I decided that I needed a change and made this Birthday card! Here's In the Moment by Victoria Case for SCACD. This is a NEVER SEEN BEFORE stamp
When I first saw this image, I thought it was cute, but now that I've colored her up and made this sweet card, I've fallen in LOVE ♥ hee hee! I've had the dp for ages, just waiting for this cutie-pie. I love the soft colors!

I've stamped the image with Memento Ink on cryogen white. Of course, you know that I've used my copics to color! Pinks: RV11 RV10 RV00; Yellows: Y13 Y11 Y00 toned down with E50; Hair: E35 E34 YR21 YR20; Skin: E11 E21 E00 R20; Puppy Dog: E35 E34 E33 E31 E30; Metal on collar: C1.

After coloring the balloon, I filled it in with Viva Decor Glitter Liner, then carefully pushed away any glitter that covered the eyes and mouth. When that dried, I gave it a nice coat of Diamond Glaze. I love the look of glitter under the glaze; it's a fun dimensional look!

I hope that you've enjoyed my little card today...
