I'm Stuffed!.

Here is another card.. this is an actual CAS.. sort of.. I think LOL! I have a really hard time with CAS! And its a Thanksgiving. I think this is an old Mooseberry image.. or now he is Doodle Dragon. This is one of those images that were just waiting to be colored. So, it is all colored up with my Prismacolor. Here is the card:

So, I colored up two of these and then I fussy cut them both and popped up a layer just like I did with the Christmas tree really. One side is popped. I like how it turned out :)  It's a cute image! I added one strip of brown patterned paper from my stashon the right. That is it LOL  Nothing more o.0 And that is really hard for me to do LOL  All that white space!!!  Yikes! Hope you like my simple little card ;)

Can you believe Thanksgiving is right around the corner!!! And there is one week less between Thanksgiving and Christmas since Thanksgiving is late. Wow!! Crazy!

Anime Birthday!.

Good morning everyone!  I've been working on coloring and getting a card together for two of Mi Ran Jung's images, which you can find at Art by Miran Etsy Shop. I love her images :)  Here is the first card using Cat Girl. I love anime :)  and so do my kids! LOL  We have anime books all around the house.. they even love to sketch anime.  I turned this into a birthday card... and here it is:

I colored this image with my Copic. The oval is a Spellbinders Die. I added glitter on the stars and the bells. I used gold embossing powder around the edge of the oval and inked the inside with Wild Honey Distress Ink. I decoupaged pieces of the image.. the bottom of the dress, parts of the ribbons, the kitty head and the bells. I added gems around the edge of the oval. I used some ribbon that I had in my stash from who knows when.. probably a good 10 years LOL The papers are Friends Furever Nine Lives from We R Memory Keepers and then Tail Waggers & Cat Naps from Bella Blvd. I typed up the sentiment and inked the edge with the same Wild Honey Distress Ink.
