Birthday Wishes

It's the beginning of what I call "Birthday Season" in our family and I'm already a little behind.  In January alone is my Husbands, Sons, Father's and Step-Father's birthday.  All male cards!!

This adorable little trio is one of the first stamps I ever bought, but sadly never found the time to use. (That's another of my New Year's Resolutions...use my neglected stamps)  It's a Whipper Snapper Designs image called Dog, Cat & Mouse.  The coloring went rather fast on this one which surprised me for it being such a large image.

Of course with it being a large and tall image it was perfect for this weeks Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge.  I hope you will find the time to play along with us this week and use this fabulous sketch.   

As always, here's a close up

Dog: E25, E35, E31, E30, R00
Cat: YR24, Y23, Y21, E50, E41, R02
Mouse: W7, W5, W3, W1, RV34, R00
Flower: BG72, YG23, YG95
Outline/Shadow: C5, C3, C1, BG0000

Luckily our birthday season is in August/September, so a while to go yet...phew. Your colouring on that fun image has such a depth to it. Love the sketch too - must try it out!!
Sorry I've been out of loop for so long, it's been more a hospital than a house here for almost a month!

Faye said...

Oh Wendy, this is delightful, I love the image and paper combo, fabby. Have a lovely weekend. xxx

Even before I'd read your post I thought how suitable for a male card. Love the colouring here too & those papers & the whole colour comibination is amazing. The dog & cat are wishing the mouse would stop jumping around & the cat looks so precarious - this is a hoot of a card & there isn't even an owl on it.........ooops got carried away.
