I mentioned earlier in the week that despite being very firmly in the dog lover camp, I simply couldn’t resist Emilie’s adorable KITTY KAPERS images.  Well, here’s another one – my favourite actually, it just makes me smile!

The image was coloured using ShinHan Touch Twin markers on Make it Colour Blending Card (colour map below).  The papers are Basic Grey Max & Whiskers, and you may notice I’ve followed the layout and used the same adorable cat paper as my card earlier in the week.  If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it – right? ;-)

The image was coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin markers on Make it Colour Blending Card.  The designer paper is from the fab Basic Grey Life of The Party 6×6 pad. The bone brads are from my stash (they’ve been there for quite some time…). Kraft cardstock for layering.

A Little Sprite With A Reminder!

I have a quick (and very sweet) little card to share today, but first, a reminder!

The Make it Crafty celebration challenges are almost coming to an end, but not quite!  You have until 30th July 2011 to get your entries in, so get cracking!  The prizes on offer are not to be missed!

Category Three – Rubber Stamp Only challenge has only got one entry so far!  Now, I KNOW there are plenty of you out there with Make it Crafty rubber stamps, so get them inky and enter!  AND there are lots of you out there with Make it Crafty Lasercut Chipboard, so get your entries in for Category Four – Make it Crafty Lasercut Chipboard Embellishments too!

If you’re not in it, you won’t win it! So, get over there and enter your creations, and if you haven’t already, check out the gorgeous inspiration on display!

Here’s a little something from me, using a Make it Crafty rubber stamp that has literally just arrived in stock here at Quixotic Paperie

Meet Fifi, who comes in a set with her friends Cici and Toto.  These little sprites are super sweet, and make adorable cards on their own, or work beautifully with the other characters and backgrounds to build a scene!  You can check out my card featuring Cici HERE.

Make it Crafty - Fifi - available at www.quixoticpaperie.co.uk

Because she’s so small, Fifi was a breeze to colour up and pop on a card.  Ideal, because this week I am working flat out with QP and several projects with deadlines fast approaching!  Eep!

Coloured with Copics on Make it Colour Blending Card.  Designer paper from the Basic Grey Sweet Threads pad, layered on Bazzill Kraft CardstockMake it Crafty Lasercut Chipboard.
