Having two little granddaughters, these adorable little images by Heather Ellis are just perfect! This collection is called "Pure Innocence" and you can check them out here. There's also other collections of mice and little animals that are also too cute!

I used SU's retired collection of DP called "Petals & Paisleys" along with Rose Red and Pretty in Pink. The digi image was printed on Neenah Solar White paper. Various Copics were used for coloring, along with a Copic glitter pen to add some glitter shine to the flowers and vase (not really visible in this photo though). Also used to make the card were oval Nesties, Signo white gel pen, stitched ribbon, and the eyelet border punch by SU. I then added a few cute little paper flowers by American Crafts, adding pearl embellishments for the centers.

Thanks for visiting my blog today. I'm really hoping to be able to post something weekly, so stop by and visit again soon.... :)

I finally had some time to stamp today and couldn't wait to ink up this cute little monkey (Changito) image by Stampendous. The DP is from the "Pool Party" collection retired by Stampin UP, along with some Mellow Moss and Brocade Blue card stock. Neenah Solar White was used along with Memento Tuxedo Black ink for the image. I also added some of Stampin UP's 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, tucking the ends back underneath the image to make 2 small loops for a different look. The image was then mounted on dimensionals to raise it up off the card.

I couldn't pass up sharing another card with you using a new digi image from Design 2 Delight. Unfortunately, the picture makes the card look a bit "washed out" but it was the best of all that I took! I think this would be a great image for a cute anniversary card...but my son's birthday is this week so I decided to work it into a birthday card for him instead. :)

Really rust cardstock by Stampin' UP was used along with 2 different textured background papers from the "Old World" mat stack by DCWV. I used Neenah solar white for the image. This paper is fabulous for running through my laser printer when printing out digital images.

Also used were various Copic markers, my oval Nesties, silver square brads, photo corner punch, and a cute little metal embellishment made by Creative Imaginations. I decided to mask the owls and tone down the white paper by using my color duster along with some soft suede ink from Stampin' UP!
