CSS Animal theme hop

Hallo,

Well talk about getting finished in the nick of time.....I have been working on this project all week, or trying to....for tonight's Gina K CSS blog hop. I finally managed to finish and get pics just as light was begining to go.....about 5:45 pm..... For tonight's theme we were to use one of Gina's animal sets.
To start at the begining of the hop start here - www.stamptv.ning.com
Remember to leave lots of comments along the way because Gina is once again giving away a FREE stamp set to one lucky commenter!!!!
If you are following the hop you have come to me from the very talented

Sue - www.suessentiments.com/wordpress/?p=5195
I had this project in mind when I bought this adorable set - 'Dino-mite'
This is a 'party in a box' - the box is an altered cigar box with a Dino theme and inside are party invitations, thank-you notes, and place cards for the guests. I also made up a Birthday card to match.
Coloring is done with prismacolor pencils and copics, and a bit of spica glitter pens on the party hat.
The inside of the box is lined with brown felt and can be used to 'wrap' the birthday gift and later for the Birthday Child's' treasures (not only boys like Dinosaurs you know :)




Just for fun I also used this weeks sketch from Stamp TV for both the box and the Birthday card :)
All for tonight...got extra teens in the house tonight and lasagna in the oven.....
Take Care
Tera
