Congatorulations!

Hi folks!

I hope you are gearing up for a nice weekend!  I leave for my job placement conference in 6 days, so I have a lot of last minute things to accomplish, and I need to study up for my interviews!   Eeek!

Anyway, I wanted to share with you a card I made for a coworker.  She recently was offered and accepted a new job.  Her last day was this past Monday, so I made her this card to say "congatorulations".  She loved it!  She did think that I really butchered "congratulations" but then realized why it was spelled that way.

The card is 3.25"x8".  The alligator, itself, was cut out at 2".  After all was said and done, I added some gel pen to give some dimension, popdotted him up and put a bakers twine bow around his neck.  I was really pleased with the way he turned out!  The alligator is from the original Create a Critter cartridge.  Check out the photos below!




I forgot to take pictures before I signed the card, sorry for my messy handwriting!  

I'll be back on Monday with 3 new posts.  Stay tuned!  :)

Craft on, 
Ian
