Hello to Everyone and a Couple of Cards

It could echo here on my blog. May has been a very busy month and though I have been crafting a lot, my blog is the thing that has been suffering. Missed all of you!!

Though I have NOT been posting, I have been buying. Isn't that how it always is? I have had a couple of personal days over the last two weeks and I have had a chance to pamper myself. Friday I had a facial and colored my hair.

I was only just going to color my grays but my hair dresser had other plans. She tipped my hair in a blonder color, blew it dry straight and curled the ends. Made me feel like a million bucks!! If only I could do this myself but alas, I am hair challenged.

Today I am sharing two cards that I created using Mama Elephant's "Little Cat Agenda." I created these cards a couple weeks ago but never had a chance to photograph them.

My first card I combined Lawn Fawn's "Love Letters" envelope with a little cat from "Little Cat Agenda."

I colored my images in with Copic Markers, then combined them with a scrap of patterned paper and a Doodlebug Design "Paper Frills." (Anyone remember these? I have almost every color and decided to pull one out to use!!)

The little hearts were die cut using a CAS-ual Fridays Stamps "Fun Fetti Fri-Dies" and covered in glossy accents. (I apologize for the dark photographs. It has been cloudy for days and I cannot get the lighting right!!)

My next card I combined the little cats with some Simon Says Stamps "Talk Bubbles" dies, PaperTrey Ink Sentiments and a Pretty Pink Posh "Stitched Film Strip" die to create my card.

I started off the card by die cutting and then doing a bit of ink blending on the Pretty Pink Posh "Stitched Film Strip" die cut. I layered this over a piece of Lawn Fawn "Dew Drop Line" patterned paper that was adhered to an A2, top folding card.

I nested the cats into the film strip and added some Stickles and Glossy Accents over some of the details on the stamped images.

I finished off the card by adding the Simon Says Stamps "Talk Bubbles" with the PaperTrey Ink sentiments.

I thank you for stopping by today. Have a fabulous night!!
