A Birthday Surprise....

Greetings everyone.  It's hard to believe that the week is almost over.  You all still have time to enter the Belles 'n Whistles "Let it Snow" challenge over on Our Challenge Blog. We'd love to liven things up, and see what you create. 

Today I've decided to show you something that is NOT snow related.  Living in NY State is just YUCK in the winter months.  The first couple of times it snow, it's always nice, but then it just keeps coming....  not even enough to be pretty anymore, but just enough to make the road horrible to drive on, and ohhhhh don't get me going about the snow.  ha ha...

I have a card to share with you today using "Surprise"  This is from last years "Love Collection" and he's still available in the BnW shop.  Don't you just love these images designed by Elisabeth Bell? 

If anyone pays close attention, they'll see that this is colored the exact same way as the one that is in the title bar at our challenge blog, and do you know why?  Because it IS the exact same one.  ha ha....  I had colored him to use on the BnW Challenge blog title and then put him in my box to use at a later date....  Today is the day!

He's such a handsome little guy, isn't he?  I wish there were a few more "boyish" stamps because boys need cards too.  This one could be used for a boy OR a girl, depending on how you look at this image.  He could be waiting patiently to give this gift to someone, OR maybe the gift is his.  But if it is, it's PINK.... ha ha....
Thanks so much for stopping by, and seeing me put a gorgeous little boy to good use.  I'm so glad I saved him, so I could use him now.

One more reminder.... Don't forget about our Belles 'n Whistles "Let It Snow" Challenge.  *hint - hint*

  3. Your card is just gorgeous. I love this cute image and I was thinking about getting it, as it is soon Valentine's day (oh my... how time flies by).

  4. I hear you about the snow. We had one of the worst winters in history near Baltimore last year. I have been dreading more snow all year. We've only gotten a smidgen so far, but I fear the big one is coming!

    Great card. I love the design and of course, your awesome coloring!
