Violeta's 1st Birthday
I had so much fun making this card for Violeta's Birthday. I watercoloured the digi image using my zigs, trying to get as close to her colour of fur as possible. And, of course, the balloon had to be purple! :) Not sure if Violeta appreciated the card Nana made, but Jer and & Alex did. It's a little keepsake for them.
My friends Susan and Christine attended the party with three of their four dogs. This is the usual group of dogs that get together for a play day while Susan, Christine and I get to play with ink. It was Tessa's 1st birthday the week before Vi's, so I made her a card as well. Again, not sure Tessa thought much of it, but her mom Susan liked it. Tessa is white with sand coloured spots so I tried to keep her colours on the dog below. :)
And one more card for another friend of Vi's that is turning one ...
I had fun making the doggie cards. :) Hope you enjoyed seeing them.
Here's a picture of the princess getting ready for the party. She wanted to wear pearls for the special event, but they only lasted about five minutes before they were off and left somewhere in the back yard. :)
