This is my 3rd post for today!  With the weekend snowstorm I've had plenty of time to play because we've been housebound since Friday evening.  Thankfully our power stayed on so we stayed toasty warm and I spent most of the weekend at my craft table :)

I'm entering this card in 3 challenge, Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #28, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Create with Critters, and CAS(E) this Sketch #156.

To make this card I first did all of my stamping on watercolor paper.  The alligator is from Newton's Nook Beach Part, the "balloon strings" are from Newton's Nook Winged Wishes, and the heart balloons are from MFT's Adorable Elephants.  Next I did all of my watercoloring with distress inks.  I added Glossy Accents to the balloons and the alligator's glasses, and finished the card with some sequins.  Such a fun card to make, I really love creating with critters :)

This is definitely my last post for today, but I'll be back tomorrow with a new card for The Challenge.

  5. This is so fun! I love how you used the "love" sentiment to make balloon strings for that cute gator! Thanks for linking up to our Inky Paws Challenge at Newton's Nook Designs.
