Happy Wednesday everyone!! How are you all doing? Seems everyone in cyberland is sick with something, including here in our house--blech! Wonder if germs can spread thru the wires, LOL! Sending everyone out there get well wishes & lots of cyber chicken noodle soup for ya all (or tomato soup if you're like me and can't stand chicken noodle soup, LOL)!
I'm just gonna blurb quickly about something I was thinking yesterday & laughing over (at myself of course) and wanted to know who else out there is LIKE ME!! I was working on one of these cards and using some paper I've had forever and I was being so careful to not use too much, LOL, thinking omgoodness I need to save some for another time. Now, when I get paper I always buy 2 of each sheet or paper pad (seriously) so that I always have extra--yes I admit it I am a PAPER HOARDER, hee hee! I almost never use the 2nd piece and/or have lots of scraps letf--this has left me with a TON of paper but I cannot STOP myself from doing it. The thought of running out of that paper while I'm working on a project or wanting to use it again (which almost NEVER happens, lol) kills me and so I keep ordering 2 of each. The craft stores LOVE me for sure :o) Anyone have a 12-step plan for paper hoarding--cuz' I need help badly?? I've gone on many paper-buying hiatuses but to no avail--I think I'm a hopeless cause! So that being said, "who else is just like this, so I know I'm not alone, hee hee?"!!

My first card for ya today uses a new digi image from Mo's Digital Pencil called "Patience"--as soon as I saw this I HAD to have it (good thing digi images are instant gratification, hee hee)! Being the mom to 5 cats, this just brought a huge smile to my face. We've only had cats for 4 years, but I can so imagine my kids doing this if they were smaller, LOL! I used the Friday Sketcher's Challenge sketch #74 from last week for my layout and my dp is from DCWV "Kitchen Stack". I colored her with Copics, added a few stickles & some diamond glaze on her bottle. The scrolls are from this punch here and flowers are all by Prima. This sentiment from PTI's "Everyday Button Bits" was just too perfect and I had to use it along with alot of my fave pearls!
Just another quick view of this lil' cutie. Copic colors on the cat were done w/ both the warm & cool grays. Her pants were done with B04,B02,B00,B0000 and reds were R08,R05, R02. Dontcha' just love her? Too cute--Mo has a way with her pencil that's for sure!
Second card uses a fabulously cute image from I Brake For Stamps called "Noah's Ark" and I just adore it! (if you order from them please use this coupon code "SAVE10SUZANNE" to get 10% off your entire order, 'kay)
When my son was born I painted an entire wall mural with a whimsical Noah's Ark (when my scanner is working again, I will load a picture of my mural) in his room. It was heartbreaking to leave it when we moved, but so fun to do. So of course I had to make a baby card with this image and I paired it with this cute dp by K&Co "Itsy Bitsy Baby Boy". The sketch is this week's Mojo Monday Challenge #109--such a fun sketch to use. The lil' sentiment is a rub-on from SU and then layered it with my oval nestabilities. I used my Bow Easy to create my bow and I HAD to add some fun matching buttons and some stickles on the image :o)
Here's a close-up of this cute image that I colored with Copics. I added stickles to the water & roof! So cute & perfect for a baby me thinks. Both of these cards today are for sale in my Etsy shop!!
Hope you enjoyed my projects for today! I'll be back here tomorrow with Blog Hop & some new releases for ya!!
