For my Husband, for our 6th wedding anniversary. He's my best friend, and has made me the woman I am today. The inside says "Not even death will keep us apart." People mess with us over our obsession with each other, but we love love, and love our love, and wouldn't have it any other way. I love him more than I could ever promise.
Here's my entry in the Hambo Hogs and Sketches #8 contest. I've been having a blast partaking in these challenges. You have all month long to do come up with something, and the rules are pretty simple. This is one of their free digis you can download if you don't have any Hambo images. I bought this paper a couple weeks back and couldn't wait to use it. My Dad just tuned 60. He's having an island themed party, so I went with this floating fat cat, which happens to go with the lovely paper. It all came together in one sitting, that is, after I spent hours coloring with my Copics and Stickles. I love the spots on the cat. Kinda gave him an alley cat feel. Stray Cat Strut ran through my head the entire time I was coloring. If you haven't already, check out the folks over at Hambo and have fun with us. I love their images, and challenges.

This is my entry for Mojo Monday #137. You get a new sketch every Monday, and the first week of the month is a contest. I've had this cute Ian image for quite sometime, and have been waiting for the right card to be needed. Well, babies are blooming like flowers this year. This one is for a baby boy to be named Micheal, after his Daddy, my brother in law. Yea new nephew to corrupt! This was my first time ever doing hair blending with Copics. I love them!
Neither my husband, nor I, have Mothers(well not anymore..we didn't come from test tubes silly), so I decided to make a few cards for my friends to procure for a nominal fee. Lost my job and can't afford any more scrapping supplies, so a girl's got to her her fix somewhere, right? I used the sketch from Mojo Monday last week. What's great about this card is I didn't have to color anything, yet it turned out beautifully. My husband says it's his favorite card I've made so far. I'm getting better at tying bows, though they still seem to be out to get me.
