Cat Tales

Cat Tales was inspired by Copic Creation's Challenge 32 - 'A Summer Reading'... I was sort of at a loss as to what to use as an image.. had tinkered with this or that..and then turned to this quite large (4 1/2 x 5 1/2 in) Stamp Happens stamp that has been sitting peacefully on the shelf collecting dust  for a number of years now... it seemed perfect for the challenge and gave me quite the Copics coloring opportunity.. because of it's size I wasn't sure what to do with it.. and then I saw Unscripted Sketches # 67 and thought perhaps I could make that work... used the CB to add a little embossing texture, a couple of buttons, and a snippet of ribbon and here you have it... and here are the other challenges I'm excited to enter:
Penny's Paper - anything goes

A Friend

I followed a sketch by Stamp With Fun and used the Home Accent Cricut Cart for my flourishes/flowers and scalloped circle, also used CB for little embossed texture and a really old stamp from Michael's dollar bin years ago... Thanks much friends for stopping by!

Just for You

For this birthday blessing I used a sketch by Meljen's Designs... I colored using Copics and while at times I wasn't exactly sure of whether I was coloring a flower or something else.. I think the end result worked out ok??  At any rate..I had fun doing it!
