PARTY.COM

It's your birthday and Sir Oliver is oh soooo excited about it!  Isn't he the cutest thing?  How do you like that plush, regal pillow he rules from?  I won him from the Digi Doodle Shop and I also found this free (yes I said free) sentiment there too! Oh and guess what?  There's a sale going on there too!

I colored him with my Copics, took a brush and added some light spots of Memento Tuxedo Black Ink in his fur.  Sir Oliver is cut out with my round Spellbinder and the mat is cut with my brand new "Floral Doily Motif" spellbinder.  The hat is a Sissix die. Both of the designer papers are from the DCWV pad, "The Linen Closet".  I love the soft shades of this pad and lots of glitter in just the right place too.  The craft card stock is
SU and I am not sure if the textured card base is SU or some I picked up at Michaels or AC Moore.

The border punches are MS Presents and the Paw Prints is from EK Success.  When I first saw the presents, I thought they needed a little glitz so I used some Star Dust Stickles.  After I did that I thought it was too much.  I punched another border and glued it directly on top of the first glittered one.  I really liked the dimension and  it allowed just the right amount of sparkle to shine through.  The sparkle yarn is from my stash.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Digi Doodles Shop - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - It's A Sketch
Crazy 4 Challenges #C4C102- Anything Male
Charisma Cardz Challenges - Glitter It
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Dies to Die For

Look at what retirement has done for me.  I surf, craft and nap.  All is well in my world.  Here's hoping all is well in yours too!  Have a great week!  Lots of Hugs!

  7. ooohhhh Im so sorry to hear about your 'enforced' retirement but at least it gives you more time to craft, great idea moving your craft space from your kitchen because then you wont be tempted to clean and cook as well as craft lol...he is a real sweetie I love his little face
