Dinosaurs!

I didn't realise how long it has been since I last posted on here. Life got in the way - I have made quite a few cards in that time plus 23 post it holders but have been house sitting for the last two weeks so unable to post. This photo is the best I could do under these dull conditions.

As it has rained all day today, I just made cards - six of them. The yummy paper I used here is Basic Grey Archaic - wonderful earthy patterns and designs in that pad.

The dinosaur's "fins" have been coloured over with gold gel pen and the rest of him has been coloured with Copics. If I don't have the colour I want, I just blend a few until I get it how I want.

The wording comes from the SU retired set It's Your Birthday and I used SU twine and Chocolate Chip for the base card. The bling is Annabelle's Sprinkles - Boy's mixture. Very pretty.

And the rain goes on. I really do feel sorry for all the people whose homes are flooded. At one stage, 80% of Queensland was under rain and although that has eased in some places, rivers are yet to peak in a lot of towns so more anguish for residents. We will never be flooded where we live here. I do hope my friends in Melbourne did escape the big storm there yesterday - I heard where a stamping show was cancelled when the venue was flooded and the hail stones came through the roof!

What a cool dinosaur card! I love it! This would be great for a male boy's card too! Super coloring and I LOVE that paper in the background. Just perfect! I'm so sorry to hear of all the rain and flooding there. I can't imagine the horror of a flooded home. My thoughts are with all of those affected. Best, Curt
