Amigo, sign up for Blog Candy


Is this image not adorable the salutations means Happy Birthday and the image is from Just Ink Lined it was a freebie last week. I am horrible about smartalic salutations on cards unless I see something cute I can never think of a cute verse. But I had this hispanic paper for ever and could not find anyone to give credit to. I wish people would save their images with their names or initials then the image name thats how I save them in my computer. Anyway I colored Amigo with Copics and Spica pens put some texture on the horse and added some Michaels dollar ric rak ribbon. He looks so cute I cut him out with Spellbinder rectangles then sponged the image before removing the die. I love doing that that since I'm bad about backgrounds.
Now don't forget to tell your friends about the blog candy I'll be drawing on Thursday night so you don't have long to leave a comment and enter the drawing. I think the blog candy is worth at least $50. always remember to 'Pay it Forward' gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling.

Oh my goodness, isn't this a great card! The fun element of the image and the great papers you had for the background pull it together so perfectly! I LOVE it!

Great card! What a super idea to sponge the background with the die still in place. The white border it leaves is just perfect!

Hola Chica! Oh this paper! It's scrumptiuos! I have so many cards to make en Espanol all the time and have only seen spanish paper once - blinked twice and it was scooped away, lol. This is outstanding! So much fun, and yet so soft - reminds me of the cartoons in the sunday funny papers! lovely!!!!!!!

Cute card. The image is great, especially for a male card. Thanks for sharing. I agree about the "PIF" it is very rewarding.

You are so creative,just love all the detail you put into this card. Sponging before lifting the spellbinders is a great tip so thanks. Hope you have a special day on your birthday and receive much love from all your friends and loved ones.

Such a fun card, Granny! Those papers are just PERFECT with that image, and I love the multi-colored rick-rack -- it has the feel of the woven blankets my hubby got for us in Mexico years ago. :-)
