i was in the mood to make a few cards...

The weekend is almost coming to an end and today was one of those quiet days here, doing a little this and that. Today actually had me in a mood to do a little coloring, yikes! it's been a long time. I have a birthday card that I owe someone and I colored it last year, yet to make it into a card to give her. lol. What I colored was a really cute princess digi, that I bought from Mo Manning's Digital Pencil Too. 
I am not finished with my princess project, so I will show you that next time. But, here is a birthday card, colored with a Mo Manning image from Stamping Bella.
This is the 'cupcake thief' and the sentiment that I stamped on her is from a set by The Cats Pajama's. 
If you could see the state of my stamps these days, you would understand why I'm lucky to have found a sentiment to match, at all! I am down to one drawer in my IKEA dresser, that's all the space I allowed myself when I had to downsize because of my craft room situation. {situation being, large dog crate in my living room, large roll top desk in my small craft room}

Ya gotta do what ya gotta do, right?

Here is card number 2...
This is an Uptown Girl image from Stamping Bella, colored last year and also finally made into a card. I went with this blue paper, not my usual color choice, but it's from a newer pad of basic grey, Mint Julep.

This past week has had me finish up another one of those poppy watercolors that I shared last post. This time I finished the 12" x 12" wooden canvas one. This week I need to get some more She Art girls started and I have a floor to install in my daughters bathroom. {it was supposed to be today's project, but I wasn't going to pull the toilet out, myself}

Here is another picture of Story, with my new Nikon camera. see you soon!!

Love the cards!!! I remember seeing the second image at the last class I took with you. You were showing everyone and I said 'if I put this in my bag and took it home, you wouldn't miss it would you?'. Lol. I obviously didn't take it but I sure wanted to! The Internet pictures never do it justice though. It's beautiful in the pic but absolutely stunning in person. Your colouring is just amazing. So glad you're blogging again.
