For today's showcase, I've used all of Crissy's new ADORABLE new images!  I love masking and since I have limited stamping time these days, what better way to ink up all the stamps :)  The sentiment is from the new Fanciful Birthday Notables 1 set, which I thought went perfectly with this group of critters.  The sentiment says "Count your life by smiles, not tears.  Count your age by friends, not years."  The sentiment was cut out using the Notables 1 die and layered on top of the Elegant Notables 1 die.

I did some watercoloring for the first time in a long time. Boy am I rusty and I wasn't great to begin with, haha.  The card is pretty simple since the image panel took up most of the space.  Hope this inspires you to grab up some of the new stamps and have some fun with them!
