This first card features a digi named “Enjoying the Rain” which you can find HERE. The rainbow background is a sheet of stationery and the digi is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. Since I cropped the original digi, I added a pic of the digi from the website. The sentiment is a freebie from DDDoodles which you can find HERE.

The second features a digi named “At the Beach” which you can find HERE. I colored the beauty with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen. After a bit of fussy-cutting, I adhered her to the background, which is upcycled from an old calendar. The sentiment on the front is from a Whimsy digi set named "Vintage Sentiments." [You can find it HERE.] The wonderful sentiment on the inside of the card is from an Imagine That digi set named “Flamingo Beach.” You can find it HERE.

I’m loving making cards for the Bugaboo “Christmas in July” celebration. Here is my entry for Day 5: Make Us Laugh with movie inspiration “Christmas Vacation.” It’s been a long time since I’ve watched it, but I remember that it involved lots of Christmas lights… and one very sad kitty. Decided my card would instead feature a happy, no… actually a scheming kitty. The image is Bugaboo’s “Christmas Cat” (available this week for at 50% off- so just $1 HERE!) I colored the little cutie with Spectrum Noir markers and a Sakura Gelly Roll white gel pen before attaching fur to his hat to add some fun texture. Sketched a circle onto a scrap of white cardstock, colored it with a silver marker and when dry drew details to create a jingle bell with a fine line black Sharpie marker. Attached the bell to the cat (Ha… I’ll be he didn’t like THAT!) and added a tiny little red bow. The sentiments on the front and inside of the card are computer-generated. To decorate the inside of the card, I created an “ornament” with a circular frame from my scrapbook stash, adding a silver cap made with a scrap of silver cardstock. To make the hanger, I punched a hole from a scrap of the silver cardstock and cut around it. I cut a slit into the ornament cap, slipped the hanger down inside just a bit and taped it on the backside. Added a bit of green twine and wove the sentiment through the circle, also taping it down on the backside.
PS We’ve had a few cats that loved to play with (i.e. decimate) the Christmas tree and other decorations. How about you?
