Howdy, Pardners! Today I'm posting my card for The Cat's Pajamas' first Customer Blog Hop! I'm a customer, so I'm hopping! :-) Believe it or not, this card was made for the birthday of the Sheriff of San Diego County, Bill Gore. He was elected one month before his birthday, so we at work decided that we couldn't resist the sentiment here. I had a lot of fun making this, choosing papers and distressing everything. It took a few tries to get the image colored in a way I liked. At first, I colored the buildings behind the penguins, but it just didn't look right--too busy. So I tried another, more subtle set of colors. Finally, I left them uncolored and I really like how it looks! Happy 1st Customer Blog Hop, TCP!
