Happy Birthday Pooch

Sorry I've been missing for the better part of this week - I've injured my knee somehow and it's really put a damper on things for me! Hopefully it will get better soon.
Anyway....I made this card for a blogging friend of mine, and she's received it, so I'm going to share it with you now. I used one of those Tim Holtz Crazy dogs, along with the accessories pack for the balloons, party hat and sunglasses. I stamped each balloon on different colored snippets of cardstock with Versamark and embossed each one with white EP. The glasses were colored with a silver paint marker and a pink Copic marker, then covered with glossy accents for some extra shine. I added some glossy accents to his nose too. The sentiment is by SNSS and was heat-embossed with white on black. The enamel dots are from TE and I hand-drew the balloon strings with a black marker. I matted the image with black and placed it on a Melon Mambo cardbase.

I'd like to share this with the following challenges:

Seize the Birthday - use vibrant colors

Little Red Wagon #441 - Shine! It's your day! add some shine

I hope you're having a great weekend. Our weather is amazing after the crazy spring we've had, but we're not done yet! It was 82 yesterday, 85 today, and tomorrow we will have wind chills in the 30s! Is that the weirdest forecast or what?

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great weekend!

Oh, no! Sorry you hurt your knee. I am glad you are on the mend though. I do love that Crazy Dog design you did. That is so cute and I bet your friend is loving it too. Your coloring is so amazing and wonderful.

Hi Carol! Hope that your knee will go better very soon!!...
How many details and textures here! That big nose really pops out as well the glasses, its party hat and the balloons!! Your card is so cleverly designed! Your friend surely has smiled very much receiving this fun doggie!! His face is too much cute! The banner with the sentiment compliments perfectly the image! Very well done!!
Here it's raining all week... and seems that it hasn't finished :(
Big hugs!

This guy has got to be my favorite in that TH Crazy Dog set. I love the way you've dressed him with the party hat & cool dude shades. The balloons look great with the white edge embossing, and great way to use up the snippety bits. Just a real cute & cheery card, to make somebody feel very special and happy. Glad you had at least a few days of nice weather. And hoping the knee is easing up just a little for you today. TFS & Hugs

So good to hear from you, Carol! I had noticed you were quiet. I'm so sorry you've injured your knee. I hope a little ice and a little heat will do the trick. I love your awesome card! Great job running those balloon strings off the card! And those glasses and that NOSE! What a hoot!! Take care, my friend! Hugs, Darnell
