Sentimental Sundays - Let Us See Some Dimension

Hi and happy Sunday!

It's suddenly got quite cold here - I am actually pondering about putting the heating on and I'm usually the hot-blooded one! At least this sudden drop of temperature forced me to get my act together ans sort out kids clothes - putting away the summer ones and discovering with certain alarm that (surprise!) they have grown since last winter. Anybody want a hefty bag of used winter clothes??? No?? Darn.

Anyways, I decided to use the dimensions challenge at Sentimental Sundays for the card from my kiddos to their beloved nana. The card is in 6x6 format with a little extra front step.

I got those fab little Hanglars from wonderful Faye (a.k.a. Fluff) and had been itching to colour them for a while. I used Copic Markers but stopped writing down the colours sometime in midst of colouring the second image of three. I just used too many markers, lol.

The papers are from Echo Park (totally love their stuff, now if they did smaller format pads as well...) Most of the embellies are from a sticker sheet that came with the papers. I'm lazy like that. Just inked everything with Vintage Photo and I was good to go. This is fast becoming my favorite ink pad, next to Antique Linen.

The punch I used is from EK Success. It's my first time using it and I so love it!! The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps, the set is called Birthday Letter Seals and is one of my big favorites.

I would like to enter thee following challenges:
Charisma Cardz (3 entries) - anything goes
Dutch Dare (2 weeks, 2 entries) - birthday cards
Creative Inspirations - 2 or more stamped images
Sisterhood of Crafters - birthdays
A Spoonful Of Sugar - anything goes
Karber - food and beverages theme
Stamptacular Sundays - Seasons change 
Crazy Challenge - Cook It 
Cupcake Inspirations


Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs
