...And Oodles of Coloring!

Here are a couple of cards I made semi-recently...both with colored images (I am really on a roll here!)

This one was for Jon's birthday...


It is a 5 1/2" square card...I am really liking square cards lately. I used a bunch of scraps from my scrap bucket...making sure they all matched with the little colored text scrap...and the stamp is from Penny Black.

And I'm sure Penny Black has a official name for this little cat...but I like to refer to her as Fat Bonnie (sorry Bonnie...I mean that in the most loving way!)

"Yeah...whatever! It's all fur!"

I stamped the image twice so I could fussy-cut the little paws and pop them up off of the card...and add the kite string under her paws!


I borrowed my friend Trish's stamp for this card...

And even raided her scrap bucket for the papers...


I like the look of having the colored images popped up for dimension...it really makes them stand out...

Well, I better get back to task...I am finishing up a big travel scrapbook for my parents' trip to the British Isles last year...and I want to give it to them when I see them tomorrow for Independence Day...
