Nuts About You

Today I get to share a card as guest designer for 2 Cute Ink!  Heidi, the talented artist behind all those adorable images, gave me a cute squirrel to work with and I rather like him!

Stamps:  2 Cute Ink (squirrel), Paper Trey Ink (sentiment)

I’ve been playing with my Copic markers again over the past week or so and remembering that I do like to color when I have the time!  There is something so relaxing about sitting down with an image and coloring away, bringing it to life!

I stuck with my usual clean and simple card making style after coloring the image.  I added the sentiment as a little banner and then took forever trying to decide how to best arrange those little gemstones hearts!  Aargh!  Why, oh why, do I fret over such little things?!  I’m sure those of you who create CAS cards can relate!  I finally made myself stop and left them as you see them!

I hope you’ll stop over to Heidi’s blog and her store so you can see just how many cute images she has added in recent months!  She’s one busy gal and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us in the months ahead!  Oh, and she’s on Facebook regularly too, so go stop in for a visit!

Today is a rather quiet Sunday here on the home front.  Everyone is sleeping, but me.  I caught a quick cat nap when DS3 was settling in for his nap, so I’m good to go!

I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!
