Marine Dino Birthday

What a busy day! Walked to work AND went to the gym with my daughter.  That was a first and fun and I plan to use her as my personal coach just to keep me motivated!  Had to clean a bit to get ready for my workshop tomorrow night and then helped Allison put some of the Tres Chic words up in her room.  The brown words on a  blue wall looks fantastic (the blue is close to Marina Mist).  After that we crashed and watched "A League of Their Own" while I iced my knee.  Oh, and I guess I created this cute little dino card - that was before the movie!!!  I plan to sleep well tonight!

I've used this weeks' sketch from Stamping 411 and the challenge at Just Add Ink this week was to use white and one other colour.   I used pieces from the Extreme Element set to work with the darling dinosaur.  The splotch was stamped with Marina Mist on Whisper White and then I took the little set of circles and stamped with White Craft Ink.  The Birthday greeting has been embossed so that it's sharper and stands out more.  You can tell I used two pieces of Marina Mist Seam Binding Ribbon across the joint of the paper.

I got some happy mail today - My name tag for Regionals this weekend.  WooHoo!!!! Can't wait!!!!!

That's all for now - thanks for stopping by!

I love your cute dinosaur card Joan. You have used the extreme elements stamps brilliantly. Glad you could play at JAI this week.

You've stepped up this monochromatic card by building that amazing background. Love this!
