Proud Mama and a Seahorse

I'm a proud mama.

I'm a proud mama who wants to show you a card I made, using my Shelby's drawing.

I requested a "child riding a seahorse" and she drew me a picture, which I scanned,printed,colored,cut out with Spellbinders' scalloped circles, and inserted in this card.

I sponged around the character with ink.

How fun is that?????

I already had the holes punched in this DP...glad I could use it-
don't you love it when that happens???
 The sentiment was stamped with Versamark, heat embossed with white powder, and sponged over with ink.
I was inspired to use her drawing, when I saw 

It makes me miss Hawaii!!!

I know someone on the DT who probably feels the same way. ;)


I have other REALLY CUTE PICTURES she has drawn for me...but will wait for the right inspiration and scene.

I think Shelby (who is soon to be 13) has great potential, don't you?

Thank you for stopping by today. ;)

  1. Shelby did a divine job with the drawing and you've just accented it with your lovely card! Great job! I used to draw sea horses ALL the time, but never one with a child on its back, I think that would be a fun ride!

  2. Oh, Marlena, this card is so cute! Shelby did a great job of "mermaid riding a seahorse"! I've never been to Hawaii, but everyone I know who has been just loves it. Thanks for joining us at FYI. I love your response to the inspiration photo :-)
