And she loves leopard

and that would be Cheryl! I've never met anyone else who is in love with animal prints so much, mostly leopard though. So when I saw this pink leopard print DP, I just HAD to get it!! Got this from Pineapple Cove the other week, it was so perfect for the card I wanted to make. I used this cute lion from the Wild Things set by The Greetings Farm, love just this image! Flowers are by Kaiser and I also got these from Pineapple Cove. Used a rhinestone brad to hold the flowers together and held onto the card with a jumbo gluedot. Used my rectangle nesties (scallop and basic) and also scallop oval punch and sentiment (SU). Image colored with my copic pens!
While blurfing over the weekend, I stumbled across the measurements to make this gatefold card by Lori Heiling. I loved the gatefold card she made and just had to try it! I loved the simplicity of it and it was so easy to make!Up close...
I also decorated this cute box I found at Ross downtown. The cover actually had a zebra print on it, but I covered it with the leftover DP so it would match the card. Then, I used the mimi with purse sizzlet die and had to have mimi's dress match too! Giga scallop circle punch and pearl bling by Kaiser (Thanks Linda!).
Here's a photo of us after we enjoyed a yummy dim sum lunch over at Royal Garden in the Ala Moana Hotel. The food was delicious! And I have to share this inside joke between me and Cheryl. We are always looking for someone to take a pic of us and can never find someone that could center us or take a closer shot and this day was no exception. The waiter (who could barely speak English) took a bunch of photos for us. After he took the photo, we would check it and laughed because he kept taking the photo with this painting that was in the back of us as if it was the subject he was trying to take the pic of! LOL! I finally said enough and decided to crop it and it turned out pretty good. Happy Birthday Cheryl!!

Thanks for coming by today! I have more to share so please come back soon!!
