Good morning and TGIF!! I am excited for the weekend to start. I had an email this morning from a friend that I haven't seen in over a year. She moved out of state a while ago, but will be in my neck of the woods tomorrow, so we are going to meet for lunch and catch up. So excited!

So, last night I was up in my craft cave, and made this card to send to my niece for her birthday.

And the inside:

Here is the sketch I based it on:

I'll be entering this in the current Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge: Designer Draft. I followed the sketch pretty closely, but adding my own flair to it (the rounded corners). I gave the dinosaur a "bow" made of bone! HA! A girly dinosaur - I love it!

Well, that's it for now. I've got to go straighten up the guest bedroom, just in case Linda crashes overnight! Drinking, along with eating, was perhaps mentioned, so I want to be ready just in case! LOL!

Have a great day!

Chris ☺
