Sing & Dance

This is a holiday weekend here in Canada. Today is called "Family Day". I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.

On Saturday we went to Sasaktoon (4 hrs away) to visit my Mother. The roads were terrible and we had to go at a snails pace most of the way home. We had a good visit my mother though...and she is doing very well at 89 yrs. young.

Here is my card for today...I love these happy geese....This stamp is called, "Gertie, Millie & Hattie" and is from High Hopes Stamps

The image is colored with prismacolor pencils (oms) and twinkling h20's. The birthday wishes is embossed. I used this weeks SC163 Sketch. Klick on the small image at the top for a larger view.

Stamps: High Hopes Stamps, Hot off the Press

Paper: whisper white, blue bayou, wild asparagud, paperbilities, k&c

Ink: versafineblack, close to cocoa, bordering blue

Accessories: ribbon, pearls, flowers, embossing

I will be back in a few days with a Wonderful award I recieved from some Fabulous blogger buddies.

Have a Day!!...Thank you for looking!..and all your Wonderful comments!!!!

Aww...LOVE THIS, Ila!! :) Again, your coloring is just fabulous!! I've been fiddling with my watercolor pencils and aqua painter as opposed to classic ink in the lids and like the pencils much better. Hopefully I'll get as good as you some day--that's my "HIGH HOPES" anyway, lol. :)

Awsome!! Gorgeous as always Ila! Such a treat to see, although I'm curious if you used extra glitter to highlight or if its just the H2O's. Everything is so perfectly put together. You are amazing girl!!!
