CGC #4-Summer Holidays/Anything Goes

Happy July 15.  I love this date because it's my birthday!  Not quite sure how I'm going to celebrate it though.

Today also is the start of a new challenge at Crafty Girlz.  The theme this month is:
Summer Holidays/Anything Goes

We're sponsored by the awesome Stitchy Bear Stamps.  They have the best selection of digis!  I used "A Precious Child" by Floppy Latte Designs.  Does Christmas in July count as a summer holiday?

Supplies: Image-Floppy Latte Designs, Paper-Paper Studio, Coloring medium-Prismacolor, Embellishments-unknown (from the scraps pile)

I'm excited to see your take on the challenge!

Thank you cats

I need to catch up on posting my cards from my neighborhood card club.  We do a card swap every two months.  June's theme was "Thank You Cards."  I had some fun with my Cricut and stamps this time.

The cat is from Newton's Nook, the sentiment from My Favorite Things, and the "thanks" is from the Gypsy Wanderings Cricut Cartridge.  I got inspired by Kristina Werner's cat color video HERE and made 4 variations of cats: grey tabby, siamese, tuxedo, and orange tabby.

I'm fairly partial to the Siamese.  Growing up, my kitties had Siamese coloring.  The tuxedo cat was the easiest to color.  The hardest was the orange tabby (picking out colors for him was so hard).  My current cat is a Calico, but I mess up every time I try to color that splotchy coat pattern.  Anyone know of a tutorial out there?

CLBC Challenge #5

Happy July!  It's the 4th of July today, and the people of the United States are having a blast celebrating Independence Day.  As for me, I try to avoid the crowds.

A new month means a new challenge at Creative Ladybird Creations.  As always, the theme is Anything Goes.  This month I used the image "Labrador Stick" from Ike's Art.

My husband and I adopted a chocolate lab puppy.  So I had to color this guy dark brown in our puppy's honor.  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things.

Be sure to join this month's challenge!
