Marlin says GOOD MORNING! Pink Elephant challenge too!

I've been a little lax on posting the perils of Marlin as of late! But no worries, he hasn't been stuffed into the bottom of my sock drawer. As you can see, he's alive and well and is enjoying his breakfast as we speak~ One thing that Marlin and I have in common is that we're both Bananas over Bananas! Thank goodness there were two, so I didn't have to fight Marlin for it......I would have taken a picture of myself with my nope, not so cute~!

Anyway one of the reasons that Marlin wanted to show his sweet face this morning was to ensure that his first mama, DIANA GIBBS can be completely comfortable knowing that he is safe and secure in the Garrett Household ( Don't worry Di, the toque is hiding a wee scar from a skateboarding accident, but the doc says that the brain damage should be minimal).
An even BIGGER reason is that we wanted to Congratulate our good friend on winning the Stampin' Up! Artisan award this year! What a special honour. Diana is SO talented that I wasn't surprised to hear that she had won. Congrats Baby! You are the best. Marlin and I are going to have a couple of Tropical 'tini's tonight to celebrate your win!

Since Marlin helped me find my mojo (thanks little buddy ;-p) I have been stamping up a storm. I completed this card for The Pink Elephant Monday Challenge, which was to make a card using Pink and Brown...........the challenge is hosted this week by the Greeting Farm, which has the coolest of images.
This sweet Character is from the Miss Anya Collection! Think she looks pretty in pink? It's all pretty Basic..........Pink Passion, Chocolate Chip, Basic Grey. My favourite yummy wide Satin Ribbon in Chocolate Chip. Coloured with Copics of course! The sentiment is from SU! Circle of Friendship! You have until Midnight tonight (EST) to load up a card for the contest over the the Pink Elephant Blog! The winner will recieve the Digital Anya and Ian Graduates! Good Luck!
Don't forget to enter on my previous post for some blog candy! You never know what' you'll get. To those of you that follow my blog, thanks SO much! It means a lot to know that someone's looking ;-p)
Happy Stamping!
