I've been doing a lot of crafting lately and it seems not a lot of blogging. My pile of completed cards keeps growing, patiently waiting for me to share their details and file them away to their respective group.
I seem to do this a lot...work up a card to go along with several challenges, only to put it to the side and not share it with the world. Need to stop doing that :)
Here are two of those cards that I've worked on recently and set aside.
This first one will be added to a collection of other cards to be sent out to my dear friend in Washington. She has offered to help sell my cards through her sons girlfriend, who works at a dog salon. So I've been working on dog/cat cards a lot lately.
Hanging Around Kitty from Meljen's Designs. I loved this image as soon as I saw it, so of course it found it's way into my shopping cart. I've colored the image up with my pencils and added glitter to the hearts and swirls. I used a couple border punches on the 2 frames and a spellbinders die for the sentiment (which is from Create with TLC).
This was another one of those cards created from random scraps in my pile. So happy to be getting rid of some of that stuff! I love my papers, but I also know that I need to use what I have before I can justify buying more :)
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafting When We Card #37-For the Boys
Graphicat Sketches #21
Stamp n Doodle-Bingo (digi image, ribbon, sentiment)
This next card is another one that I fell in love with right away.
Bugs and Kisses from Tiddly Inks, and is so darn cute! I purchased her awhile ago and I'm not really sure why it took me so long to put her on a card! Again, the image is colored with my pencils and detailed with glitter. I love the black/white/red color combination, and I wasn't really aiming for a Valentine card here...but those colors together at this time of year just lead the mind in that direction. But I left off any Valentine specific details, so it can still just be a love card any other time of the year :)

Thanks for reading through my lengthy post :) I'll try to get better at posting my cards more often...maybe say, once I finish them :)
