First Time Grandma card for Squigglefly's Saturday releases!

Every Saturday is release day for Squigglefly.  So, you know what that means, right?
New images for you to download today!  And they are C-U-T-E!!!

I'm using the new Whimsy Rocker by Revi Devi Paat paired with a sentiment from First Timers by Chesney Young.  If you have some friends that are going to be first time mommies, daddies, grandparents, aunts, or have to check out this set.  You'll be getting 14 images for just $1.50!  That's just amazing!  And remember, with your digital images, you can mix and match the sentiments with your other Squigglefly images like I did.

A dear, dear friend of mine is going to be a new grandma very, very soon!  So, when I saw this image I knew I wanted to make her a card using it.  I then went hunting for a sentiment to go with it and wow, did I hit the jackpot with the First Timers set!

Don't you just love all the pretty colors for a new Grandma?  This grandma lovessssssss purple!

Lots going on with my Copics in this image. 
If you really want to see all of the detail, click the image to enlarge it.

I wanted to add some texture to the little horsey, so I colored him with E57 and E59.......then I tore off a piece of an old towel and put some colorless blender solution on the tip of it and blotted over top of the horse.......Suddenly, he came to life and looks like he's a stuffed animal!  

I also used the Colorless Blender pen to make the plaid in his blanket to match my plaid pattern in the green patterned paper.  Finally, I used my Copic Multiliner 0.3 pen to add in the wood pattern on the rocker.  I love how all of these things pulled together for this image.

I got to use my new PTI Simple Sentiments as the sentiment on the inside!

So much detail for a digital stamp! I love the hand-drawn woodgrain. I thought it was part of the stamp. The inside sentiment is adorable. Can't wait to get mine next week.
