Mr. and Ms. Dino-Mite

We're starting with another challenge over at Tuesday Throwdown and the theme with time in DINO-MITE!  Fun, right!  So, in honor of the challenge I'm giving you Mr. and Ms. Dino-Mite!  Our sponsor this time is My Grafico who also provided images for the DT to use.  Come on over and play along for your chance to win a wonderful prize package from Mr Grafico.

I used two of the My Grafico images, colored them, cut them out, and then they were popped up. The green patterned paper is from my stash and then I added a very narrow brown strip of card stock.   The clouds were sponged (actually done with a stipple brush) in the background and that Lil Inker sun die popped up.  The sentiment is from SU.  Ms. Dino-Mite would just not have been complete without her pearl necklace and red toe nails.

Side Note!  I seem to be having a bit of a problem with Blogger (actually I call it Bugger - among other things!) and can't seem to get my Reading List so don't know what blogs have posted for the day.  SO, if I haven't stopped by your blog yet, please be patient until Blogger (Bugger) can figure out what's going on.  It appears I'm not the only one - BY FAR - that this is happening to right now though - so I'll just keep plugging away at it all and hopefully Blogger will figure out what to do about the problem.

Thanks for stopping by........and be sure and check out the Tuesday Throwdown challenge!

I love this card, Lynn, and your sky work with that stipple brush is AMAZING lifelike. I tried the brush the other day but it didn't come out anywhere near as yours. I'm going to take a picture of this screen and try to CASE it. WOW, I starting have this same problem with Blogger list yesterday, so I may miss some people also with commenting. I had no idea how to go about getting it fixed. So glad to know I'm not the only one. Hope you have a Dino -Mite day.

Oh Lynn, this is just adorable! I love the feminine touches to the Mrs! I love all the spots on the Mr too! You'll have to share how you do the clouds with a stipple brush, because they look wonderful!
My blogger went to bugger yesterday too! None of my blogs would load, so I couldn't visit mine either! Gee whizzikers - that can make my routine life annoying when they go on strike like that! LOL

Love that dreamy sky with the ca-ute dinos! Nicely done!

Darlene said...

This card is totally Di-no-mite!!! I am amazed that you stippled the sky, thought it was store-bought DP. Very impressive! Love the extra touches on this one.

This is so cute! The pearls on the pink dinosaur are perfect! I really like how you did the sky - I need to try this!

Don't worry about Blogger - it seems everyone is having the same problem. I reported it yesterday and dozens of others have reported it too. They are working on it but they said it's some kind of bug and they don't know when it will be fixed. Very annoying!

Hugs,
Kitty

Hey, I've just been seeing on several blogs, that Bugger got that reading list fixed for some of them. Hope yours gets sorted real quick too. You are becoming quite a dab hand with those great clouds. Love that LI sun die (don't have it yet!) It fairly sparkles that warmth down on this cute couple. Love her necklace & pink toes, and cute images all the way. Great design, great papers..Heck..what can I say: Great card! WTG. Bit of a rest from your chores to be creating,eh? TFS & Hugs

Awww... Dino Love! What a sweet card. I think Mr. Dino is ready for a nice hug 'n squeeze from Ms. Dino.

Brenda said...

I am having a lot of problems with my reader list too Lynn. Like I am so behind with your projects and tonight I wanted to try and catch up but while on your blog it keeps flipping to an invalid site and I'm not doing anything to cause it too. Finally it stay so I could comment on this card. This blogger-bugger stuff is getting frustrated! lol I love, love your Mr and Mrs Dinosaur! They are so cute, love the sky you created and love the pearls the Mrs. has on. lol Hugs, Brenda

Margaret said...

Oh, how adorable is this?! I never thought to add pearls to my dinos to make them girly!! Your sky looks amazing too!
I had the same problem with blogger. It would only show one link, so I gave up visiting for a little while.
