Stamping Kitty

This is one of my cats Sophia.  I was making some cards today and she loves to sit on the table and stare at me while I'm working.  Just thought I'd share.  I have two other carts, Anthony and Carmella.  Carmella cares nothing about my crafting, Anthony enjoys trying to eat my ribbon.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

Bugaboo Turtle

This is just the sweetest image!  Digi image from Bugaboo, I colored with Copics.  The paper, ribbon and brads are all from Close To My Heart, I've been digging into all my CTMH stuff lately.  Trying to use what I have and not buy to much paper right now but it's so tempting when all the new papers come out!!  Hope everyone is having a good week, we are getting more snow again...seems never ending this year.  I think that's why I've been working on bright "springy" stuff this week I can't take the gloom of winter.

Cute Card Thursday Challenge

Cute Card Thursday's Challenge this week is monochrome, I had this image colored and had been sitting on my desk forever and thought I would use it for this challenge.  I hope it's monochromatic enough!!  LOL This is a Pink Cat Studio digi, colored with Copics.  Papers are from Close To My Heart.  I'm home again with my sick daughter, bringing her to the dr. in a bit, she's had a fever and a lovely cough for a couple days now.  I'm sure I will be getting sick anytime now..ugh. 
Happy Wednesday everyone! E

High Hopes Blog Hop

There is still time to participate in the High Hopes blog hop celebrating the 100th challenge.  There are some amazing cards along the way!

High Hopes Chef Luigi

I love this image!  Such a cute lil Italian chef he is!  Colored with Copics, the black lacy ribbon I had originally bought for Halloween but I thought it would work well on this card.
We are supposed to get more snow tongith because the 30 inches we got last week apparently wasn't enough lol.  Just started to see a portion of the driveway....oh well June is coming!  Hope everyone has a great week, happy Monday. E

More Valentines Cuties

My craft area is still in a state of destruction as we are painting the downstairs and with the snow there's been lots of overtime being worked in my house and little time to finish the project.  But I did get a couple of cards done.

Both cards done with Copics, both sets of paper I had in my stash and were pieces so I'm not sure who's they are!  Trying to be good and use scraps first before I dig into a brand new piece of paper.  I'm doing well with some of my New Year's resolutions - one was to be more organized so Friday night while Mark was plowing I spent two hours sorting buttons and brads!  I have them sorted much better now (they are all in plastic divided cases and I have I think 16 of them full!) round buttons in one, shaped buttons in other etc.  So it was a pain but worth it!  We got more snow last night and my lil tiny Chihuahua hates it so taking him out has been a nightmare he's such a princess!  LOL Hope everyone has a great Sunday and a good week.  Hugs E

Happy New Year!

One of my New Year's resolutions is to be more active on my blog and getting my cards "out there"!  I have good intentions and then the week just gets crazy and well you all know how it is.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Years, we did!  I am glad it is over though it was just such a busy few weeks I didn't feel like I had a lot of time to enjoy it.  I ended up making so many Christmas cards for others I never made any for myself lol!  So I just wished everyone a Merry Christmas and maybe next year I will be more on top of things.  So it's Valentine's cards already...I made these two last week.

The top image is Stampavie and the bottom is a Penny Black.  I loved the purple/red combination.  Both colored with Copics and added flowers (of course).  The Stampavie card has flowers for Wild Orchid which are just beautiful.  I am awaiting another order and can't wait!  Happy Sunday I'm watching the Dolphins get destroyed by the Pats.  Being a New Englander you would think I'm a Pats fan but nope Dolphins!  Quite used to them losing so I'm ok with it!  Hugs E
