You Are The Answer To My Prayers!

This cute little digi image is from Bee Crafty.  It was a Freebie they offered for one of their Challenges.  Unfortunately, I didn't get my card done in time for that challenge...However, I did get it done in time to give to my wonderful Hubby on our Anniversary.

The image is colored using my beloved Copics, then cut out and mounted on a "Wonky Square" by Nestabilities.  I distressed the edge with Ranger's Walnut Stain and Tea Dye Distress Ink pads.  I also used a MS punch.  I'm in love with this "Shabby Vintage" DP from (surprisingly) Tim Holtz.  I also used a Nestablities Curvy Rectangle on the inside, to make a window for my computer generated sentiment.  I didn't want to get too "fussy", since it was for my Hubby, so no bows, glitter, or flowers. 

Computer generated outside sentiment:

Tiddly Inks Blog Hop

Tiddly Inks  is having an Open Blog Hop.  I've never had a card in a Blog Hop before, so thought I would join in on the fun.  This is one of my favorite Tiddly Ink's digital images.  This is "Joy Bug"...isn't she sweet?
She is colored with copics and lots of glitter for her wings...a  girly bug can never have enough glitter on her wings!
The sentiment is computer generated and punched out with SU punches.
DP is from the "Sweet Fairy" collection.  The flower is made from a brown paper bag...saw the video on YouTube.  The card stock layer behind Joy Bug is cut with Nestibilities "Peony".  The corrugated piece in the lower left corner is "by" Starbucks.

I hope you are enjoying the blog Hop.
You can find two other cards I made using Tiddly Inks images, in some earlier posts.
Thank you for stopping by.

Hi Everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day Celebration!
The image I used on todays card, is a sweet little Ballerina Kitten from "Stamps Happen"
The image is colored using Copic Markers.  The Kitten is done with various Warm Grays, and her dress is done using one of my favorite color combinations; R81, R83,R85

I'm not sure if you can tell, that I have added Diamond Stickles to the edge of her skirt, the flowers in her hair, as well as on the bouquet of flowers.  I also added a bit of tulle to her bouquet to give it a softer look.
