The Cat's out of the bag


 
 
 This month at Delightful Inspiration {from the heart}, the free stamp of the month challenge is to use “The cat’s out of the bag” digi. It was free to those who participated last month and I decided to combine it with the weekly sketch challenge #32.


 
I coloured my image with my prismacolored pencils, then double mounted it with my square nesties and cut the upper right corner with my square punch. I also used my Martha Stewart punch for the behind the image borders and papers are from one of my old Cosmo Cricket pads.
 
FYI: Faith is having a design team call that is open until Sep 15. You can check out the details on her blog here.
 
I would also like to enter the following challenges:

Good Luck


Finally it's Saturday!!! Hubby is home and will help me with the kids. We don't have anything planned as yet but will have to take them out. They're way too active to keep them inside:-)

I was supposed to make this card for last week's challenge for Meljen's Designs but missed the deadline. But I am happy to use it for this week's challenge which is to use Fancy Fonts, speaking of which, it's the PTI Script sentiments set. Love that one! If you look closely, I offset the sentiment and gave it a hazed look :-)

Happy Birthday!!!





Happy Friday! Ah, it's been almost a month since I last posted in here. I wanted to get away from this and everything since the kids are on holidays and they are driving crazy...lol. I needed some time to think about what I was doing and where I needed to focus myself. Family came first in this case and still is. That's why I had to give all my time to my kids, they needed me to be there for them for these 2 months off school. Not an easy task but I strive to make it better everyday.

Enough chit chat and let's get back here. For today's card, I have used From The Heart Stamps sketch and used Tiny Triceratops. I colored it with my prismas as usual. I will also enter this card in the following challenges:
Doodle Pantry , Dutch Dare , Happy Campers , Paper Crafting Journey, Lil Red Wagon and Penny Paper- Crafty.

Paper: Cosmo Cricket, American Crafts.
Stamp: Avocado Arts
Extras: prismacolored pencils, Cuttlebug bubbles e/f, spellbinder dies, dimensionals, Kaiser pearls, black outliner



 Later, after I was done, I found that I had used too much of the greens. It then dawned on me that I could go back and outlined the image to give a crisper effect. I totally love it now. What do you think?
