Happy 97th Birthday

I follow this man on Instagram who recently turned 97 years young!! He has over 20,000 followers and I enjoy reading his Instagram stories. They had a big party for his birthday and asked followers to send him cards so I sent this one. This is my "go to" card for men. I got out my Oxide inks and did some masking to get the sunset in there.

Challenge #106 at Challenge Up Your Life Guest Designer

I am the guest designer for Challenge #106 at Challenge Up Your Life and the theme is "Case the Design Team". I have chosen to CASE Steffie's Hello card and you can see it here. Here is my card. I used my Jane Davenport watercolor paints to paint the background blue. Using a zig black fine tip marker, I drew the lines around the card. Then I stamped the dog onto watercolor paper and colored him using my Jane Davenport watercolors. Stamped the Hello bubble word and added it to the card.

I hope you'll join Challenge Up Your Life for challenge #106 and you can find it here.
