Blogger's Challenge #164: Birthday!

As soon as I saw this set "Friends Fur-ever", I knew that being a "dog" fan, I had to have it!  This is more of a scottie dog (I would've loved a Beagle, of course!) but isn't he/she adorable?

I decided to do a little watercoloring to complete the challenge.  I stamped everything with my black Staz-on onto a piece of Watercolor Paper and added colors using my Stampin' Up markers and blending using my Aqua Painter.  I am so glad that we have markers to go with our In-Colors so I could use my Concord Crush (which I have been calling Concord Grape...oops!  I even made my ink pad labels with that name!)


I snuck in a little Daffodil Delight DSP from the Patterns Designer series Pack....another bargain in that for $19.95 you get 40 sheets of DSP!  I topped off my homemade tag with a Daffodil Button from the Brights button collection.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to see what the other players did to celebrate birthdays this week!
