Some Cuties from Meljen's Designs

Happy Saturday!! I hit the craft room this morning, and I think I unblocked my block this morning. These wonderful images from Meljen's Designs have helped the process! I've been so crazy busy and then tired from the long days that I haven't been tapping into my creativity as much in the past week. Now, I did, and it feels good. Not to mention that the sun is shining...that is truly good for the soul. Funny about the above card...I wanted to name it either "Go for the Gold" or "Let's Do Lunch"...cheeky sense of humor, I know! Sorry!

I used my copics to color this, and the cat was colored with E51, 53, and 55. Fun time coloring this little mischievous cutie. The border punch is from the SU Sale-a-Bration catalog, and the designer paper is Sugar Rush by Basic Grey. I used Wild Wasabi and Pretty in Pink from SU.

These little cuties are from Meljen's Designs...you know I love cute, and these are CUTE!! She has a wonderful Etsy shop and a blog. The above card here is super simple, but I think the image begs to be kept simple. I wanted the big expanse of space to symbolize the space between two people who miss one another, and the blue bird, well, he's blue! You get it! I colored with copics, and the yellow is Barely Banana from SU.

I finally tried a circle card with this little cutie from Meljen's Designs...they just beg to be colored. I'm serious...my copics were yelling to me to come and color these images!! LOL! I had some issues with my ribbon, but it worked out for the most part. I also realized that sometimes my Creative Memories cutting system doesn't have just the right size circle, but I made it work this time. I used Basic Black and Summer Sun cardstock by Stampin' Up, and the shimmer is from SU's last mini, and it is called Champagne Mist from Tsukineko. I also used copic markers and my scalloped circle Nestabilities.
