It's A Birthday Card for the Color Throwdown Challenge 82

Hello, Everyone! So I went on and on yesterday about Chi Chi Memories and rightfully so because Natalie's stuff is awesome. But before I stumbled upon her stamps I bought a digital stamp from Pink Cat Studio and had already started coloring it up and because time is SO limited these days I decided to finish coloring this adorable stamp and use the colors from this week's Color Throwdown Challenge #82 Navy, Ruby Red and Olive. I, of course, took my own creative liberties and decided to use Pacific Point instead as it's just a wee bit more vibrant which I thought went with my Basic Grey papers nicely.

Too bad that my pictures don't show the hi-lights I put on Cowboy Billy. I'm trying to get better pictures AND work more professionally with my Copics. Speaking of which, I signed up for a class in April at a local store. The class will be taught at Abeille in Brookline, MA by Liz Ballard from A Muse Art Stamps so I'm super excited!
I hope every one's excited tomorrow is Friday. Little Keith has his 2 year check up tomorrow and we're having a family birthday on Saturday to celebrate his 2nd birthday. Time is moving at warp speed, I swear! Well, that's all for now. Have a fabulous weekend!
