Welcome to the September EBE Release Hop!

So. I KNOW. I KNOW Dino-mite Christmas is, in fact, a holiday themed DINOSAUR set, but I just could not resist having “Godzilla” stomp into the city with birthday wishes. It just cracks me up!!! Did you ever watch Godzilla movies when you were a kid?

I had to incorporate Brandi’s Backyard Party set for the greetings and cake. Godzilla’s flaming breath is the latté steam from A Breve Note. When everything just falls into place like this, ya’ gotta run with it. Am I right?!

Inside, the card reads, “You party animal” (also from the Backyard Party set). I mean, seriously . . . •chinkle•

My granddaughter (almost 7 yrs. old) love dinosaurs and to my surprise, can identify/name a number of different types—she knows more than I do!

HOP ROSTER:


HALLOWEEN, THANKSGIVING AND CHRISTMAS CARDS, OH MY!

There was a lotta chuckling and monkey-clapping goin’ on when I finished this one—and I know just who to send it to, LOL! Hands and feet were hand drawn, and then the little guys were coated with Glossy Accents.

The Bears are ready for Turkey Day—I’m laughing because I remember the last time the Mister and I were in Disneyland, and he just had to have one of those turkey legs—they’re ginormous, LOL! I

I haven’t shown off the Mondo Amaryllis yet, so here’s one way to use it. I white embossed it with a detail/fine white powder and watercolored it. I’ve learned (after many fails, LOL!) to use a fine/detail embossing powder if I plan to die cut the shape later because when I use regular, the embossing seems to crack and chip off from the pressure.

Hope you found today’s shares inspiring!

Another fun version using the very same stamp set, very same layout and similar color scheme.

So! What do you think of Bear’s new companion? Li’l Bear is down at the pumpkin patch today with Dad, but has sooooo much more to do as the holidays approach… (wink) . Big Bear (the original) is from All Inside.
