Springtime Love - Bloggers Challenge Pets

This is all Lisa's fault you know, cuz if you read her challenge for the BC last Friday.....she made me do it!  lol  True story tho....when we first moved here to SW Florida, almost 20 years ago, it was so desolate that we had gators swimming by all day...and at nite when you turned on a flashlight in the canal...all you saw were red gator eyes!  I had names for some of these babies.....so I guess if would be safe to say they were like "pets"! ???  There was Cottonnose, and Stubby to name a few.....both of these gators were 10-12 footers and would swim over if I called them!
*** remember dear friends, this is Gerrie here! ha ha ha


By chance, the Random Redhead Challenge is Scene Stamping at Gingersnap Creations, and this is my challenge card for the StampscapesII yahoo group, Springscapes.  hugz....

LOL! When I saw Lisa write about the alligator's, I thought, "She put that in there for Gerrie!" LOL! This card looks great! I love your coloring! I wish I knew if you used markers, or colored pencils or a combo of things. I love the sky and the water...lots of action.

Keep having fun!

Ha Ha Ha...How fun that you did an "Alligator" card after Lisa mentioned that in her post.
I told her my oldest brother had an alligator as a pet. It died though and he kept it in the Freezer for years after that and brought it out as a conversation piece when guests would come over. (Weird huh?) - Anyway I loved your card.
