Party Animal

Hi there!  Happy Tuesday!  Hope your week is off to a great start!  I am scrambling to get a lot done this week and can't seem to stay on track.  I did manage to make a fun card that I had hoped to have posted on Sunday.  Have you seen that Paulette has a new feature over on her Create With TLC blog?  It's called Show It Off Sunday and every Sunday, Paulette will have a new Linky Party up for you to post anything crafty that is handmade by you and has been shown on your blog.  It doesn't have to be a card and it is not restricted to items using Create With TLC products, although I am sure Paulette would like to see those, too!

Grab this badge and head over to post your own project for Show It Off Sunday!

Here is the project I am linking up this week:

I made a card using a fun image and sentiment from Create With TLC.  The card base and mats are SU Real Red and the patterned papers are from the Bo Bunny Surprise 6x6 pad.  I colored the giraffe and balloons with my Copics, then added a bunch of brightly-colored Stickles to make them sparkle.  A couple of balloon stickers and a few gems from my stash finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the image:

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope to get by to visit you a little later once I've ticked a few more things off my to do list.

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Sketch N Stash #122 (sketch)
Love to Create Challenge #85 (candy photo inspired)

Here is the sketch:

And here is the candy photo I used for inspiration:

Have a great evening and see you soon!
