Sending Kindness

Hi there  - Dawn T here today to share a card using a gorgeous image from Graciellie Design.

Once the fruit flowers die off, the lovely fruit develops.... so today I'm sharing a card that is the result

A quick card to do as the pears take centre stage.  I coloured with Copics and Spectrum Noir markers, die cut with a Lil'Inkers die and all done.

Just one more day to enter our May challenge.

Thanks
Dawn T and the Divas

Cutest Little Kitten To Go

Graciellie Design


I took two digital kits and combined the kitty with the "to go" cup and it is really the cutest combo I've done in a long time on a card.   I fussy-cut the kitten and cup with flowers.  The papers are scraps from the infamous scrap pile.



Close-up below
Isn't this the cutest?  It makes my heart melt.

I have used the lovely flower coffee cup today with the matching sentiment.  I die cut the printed panel with a scallop die from Catherine Pooler Designs and added it over an embossed background.  I coloured the image with Copics.

Kitty in a Cup

Graciellie Design

Graciellie Design is our wonderful sponsor for May and isn't the saying "April Flowers Bring May Flowers"?  

So it is with our theme, 

Use flowers or a flower in your project.


This is a sweet kitten in a cute cup.  The sentiment is as sweet as the kitten.  There are flowers in the design, but difficult to see.  I recently received some very pretty purple petite posies from my March Card Chain Challenge partner, Lucille, and I knew they were perfect for this cup.  I think I colored the cup a bit darker than I would have liked, but the sentiment and blue matting make the dark cup fit.  Sometimes you can save an image.

Supplies:
Graciellie Design You are the Sweetest
Vagabond die cut machine
Copic markers
Petite Posies
