GRRRRRReat!

Greetings Everyone!  I hope your July 4th was Spectacular!  This was a quiet weekend for my husband and I as this was weekend that my niece moved back to Indiana.  I had hoped things would work out and she would want to go to school here but ultimately, I just want her to be happy and comfortable.  If that means going home, then I support her and that means she can have vacations HERE :)  Right Lauren!? ;)  
So, onto my card!  

Today is the 5th of the month so that means NEW IMAGES from DOODLE PANTRY - Yippee!  Here is a card I made using "Quirky Alligator."  Isn't he adorable!?  He's colored with copics and I layered the image on a few different kinds of papers.  The card is Bazzill cardstock (Rainforest); the orange cardstock is Bazzill also but I am not certain of the color.  The plaid print is from DCWV Safari kids matstack.  The alligator skin paper was created using green crackle print paper (I think from Creative Imaginations?) and then I embossed it using Fiskars texture plates.  The balloon was cut from a balloon-printed transparency (from Momenta) and the buttons are from Basic Grey.  I created the sentiment by combining one of Laurie's (GRRRReat) and a clear stamp (Birthday Wishes).   Laurie has a section in the store, "Digi Grab Bag" and there you will find digis  have been marked down 50%.  This grab bag is available today through July 19th!  Check it out HERE!

HAPPY CRAFTING! <3 Lisa
