Shades of green ....

... Morning!  This is going to be a quick post as the deadline for submission to Colour Me Card Challenge - CMCC#62 is fast approaching!  I had to play along as I just love all shades of green.  I've made a fun little birthday card:

Happy Birthday - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Inkadinkadoo - Humourous Birthday; Uniko Studio - Simply Said Birthday
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Stampin' Up! - Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear

This one was really quick and easy to make.  I found this cute lizard in my stash - he comes with a sentiment attached, but I cut it off and just stamped him.  I coloured him with Copic markers and added some sparkle all over with my clear Wink of Stella Brush.  I cut the little sentiment that comes with the lizard in half and used only the top portion which I inked in Pear Pizzazz.  I finished the front with a bold Happy Birthday greeting.  I'm submitting this card to Less is More - LIM#215 where the challenge is a one layer card (yes) and features and animal (yes).

I took a close-up of Mr Lizard to show the sparkle.  I've not done the inside yet, as I want to make sure that I submit in time for CMCC - I'll add a photo of the inside, once it's complete.

Edited:  At Kylie's suggestion, I'm also submitting this to the current Addicted to CAS - ATCAS59, where the cue word is GREEN. Sarah has suggested I add this one to the current AAA Cards Games - AAACG#35 where they want a "bare naked CAS" card.  By that, they mean lots and lots of white space.  Thanks for the suggestion Sarah!  I'm in!  Somehow I've managed to miss this challenge before - I won't again.


We have a fabulous day yesterday taking photos of the gorgeous Natalie.  The theme of yesterday's shoot was "Bohemian Style" and Natalie has a fabulous wardrobe.  Here's one of the photos from yesterday - just a quick edit:

I hope to get the rest of the photos edited in the next couple of weeks!  That's all for now - see you soon.
