I Love My Cat!

 Good morning friends!  Today is my day to post on the Oddball Too Cute To Spook blog and I decided to make a cute little ATC.  This one uses the box from CCC #145: Spring Cleaning and the kitty from CCC #149: Haunted Picnic - I cut along the box edge and tucked the kitty inside to look like he was playing in the box, as my kitty Merlin loves to do:

This paper pad from Doodlebug Designs is called Smitten Kitten and was perfect to pair with the kitty stamp - I added some stickers from the same line and a little ribbon tag.  The images were colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

I'm off to spend the day crafting - I'm so looking forward to it. Hope you all have a wonderful day!  Peace.

Rainbows Follow Bad Weather!

 Hello friends!  I'm back today with a fun card I made for my DT spot at Oddball's Too Cute To Spook blog using Lizzy's new image CCC #148 Premium Rainbows:

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Polkadoodles: Anything Goes

C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Inspired by a Book (Wizard of Oz)

Love to Craft: April Anything Goes

I colored using Blick markers and Ranger Stickles - I created the background paper with alcohol inks and a cloud stamp.  I absolutely love playing with alcohol inks - it's my new favorite technique.  I added a piece of decorative tape and a dragonfly charm.  I had fun coordinating rainbow colored mini clips and gemstones - I love how this came out and how the image is the focal point.  I hope you are all finding some rainbows in your life right now - it certainly is a strange time to be alive, isn't it?  

Here are a couple of new pics of my gorgeous granddaughters, who give me hope for the future:

We call this one Lisey Beans - hee hee - she's 10 months old and NEVER stops smiling, I swear.  She's the happiest, chubbiest, sweetest, most lovable baby that ever lived.

And this little princess is Miss Raerae - the one who made us grandparents.  <3 She's a little over 2 years old - she talks like a mini adult and cracks us up constantly.  She climbed out of her crib this morning for the 1st time - when her momma was a baby, SHE climbed out of her crib, fell on her face and knocked her 2 front teeth back up into her gums!!!  LOL  Believe it or not, they came back down on their own eventually but boy, was that traumatizing (for me!  LOL).  ;)

Keep your loved ones close - they are all we really have in the long run.  Take care of yourselves.  Peace.
