I used a Gruffies image for my card that Emma stamped and sent to me. WAY CUTE!! Thanks Emma :)

I got all glitter happy on this card :) Really sparkly IRL!! You can't really see it...but I used a clear glaze pen on Gruffies nose.
The card base is embossed with a Cuttlebug Embossing folder. Main image layers are attached to the base on dimensionals. Coloring done with Prismacolor Pencils & Gamsol.

You know I am a fan of all your cards. I have not made my way around blogs near as much as I wish I had. I have a lot of catching up to do. You are so inspiring and this card is no different. I love the glitter on the balloon ... it is all just too sweet! I scrolled down to see all the baby pics. They made me crack up as well as brought back memories of my kids at that age. Why does time have to go by so fast??! She is just precious. No worries about missing your beautiful blog creations anymore! I subscribed!! YAY!!!! OK, hushing now. I just got a lil excited. :o)

This is fabulous! And I don't care who ya are...there is no such thing as too much glitter!!!:o)

I hope your hubby is doing okay. New casts can be a real pain in the you know's like having to get adjusted to a new pair of shoes, except you can't take it off when it becomes uncomfortable. I'm keeping y'all in my prayers.
