Olivia & Archie - so cute!

Dex has been at nursery today, but I don't feel like I've done anywhere near as much as I should while he was there... I had the radio on and finally realised this afternoon that I can't concentrate with it on - silence for me tomorrow then!  I'm a bit behind with commenting too, so I need to have a big catch up session tonight.  Here's one of the cards I managed to make...



This is Olivia and Archie, one of the new images from Digistamp Boutique, available as May's offer of the month here.  I've just noticed though, when I went to link up the image, that in the version I've used Olivia doesn't have a bow, and in the one in the shop she does... not sure why!  Anyway, bow or not, they're the cutest little cats ever :o)  I've coloured them with promarkers and koh-i-noor pencils.  The papers are First Edition with core'dinations cardstock, pearls and ribbon are from my stash, flowers cut with my new MFT die.

I can't believe how brave (or possibly how very stupid!) I was, stamping the sentiment directly onto the image AFTER I'd coloured it in... that could have gone very wrong and I'm glad it didn't!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
We had a little breakthrough at nursery today... Dex (officially the fussiest child EVER) ate green beans for the first time!  Ok, so he didn't eat anything else that he was offered, but I'm still ridiculously pleased :o)

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous Lisa! Love the colours and papers and fab layout. I can't work without the radio on and always listen to the footy commentary when I'm working on a Saturday although I have no interest in it whatsoever! xx

Hi Lisa, gorgeous card, just finished colouring a card with these cute images myself and I used the same colours as you although my colouring isn't a patch on yours. My image didn't have a bow either so not sure if it should have one now lol.
Green beans aye, it will be broccoli next.
Hugs
