Happy "4 month" Birthday Ainsley!

Can you believe it?  It's already been 4 months since Lil' Peep was born.  Man, time sure does fly!  It's been super crazy around here since my retirement in February.  I now find myself saying what other retirees always told me (and I would just roll my eyes), "I don't know how I ever got anything done when I worked!" It's true!! That's exactly how I feel.  The DH and I have been going non stop.  I thought I'd have more time to craft but nope, seems we're always repairing or remodeling something around here. Oh well, it keeps us busy and that's a good thing.  So, with that said, I don't have a lot of time to design so I've been stalking Pinterest for card ideas.  It sure takes the stress out of card making but it still gives me the same satisfaction when it comes to coloring.  Oh, I do love to color!   But I certainly want to always give credit to where I found the design so if you want to see the original pin you can click on the link in this post.  So, without further ado, here's Lil' Peep's 4 month birthday card!  It uses Kraft cardstock so you know I love it!  lol!

You can click HERE for the pin by Tara Sell.  Isn't it the cutest!  I used the My Favorite Things "Somebunny" set and colored pencils.  I didn't use Gamsol this time, I just blended using the pencils.  I just love the look of colored pencils on Kraft, don't you?  I wrote "4 months" on the balloon, and then filled it in with Glossy Accents.  Just as Tara did, I added additional accents with a white gel pen.  Okee dokee, that's it for me today.  Have a SUPER Saturday!  {{{Hen hugs}}}
