Newton Unwinds by Newton's Nook Designs

Hey peeps!  Hope you are doing well.  Tomorrow is the last day of the 2021 Cat Lovers Hop at Her Peaceful Garden.  

I needed to make a quick masculine card and so I came up with this. I made a very similar card a while ago and so I didn't have to come up with a new design.  The super sweet image is "Newton Unwinds" stamp set by Newton's Nook Designs.  You can find this adorable stamp set here:

As always, I coloured this cute image with Copic markers and Polychromos pencils.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I always appreciate your lovely comments. Have a happy weekend.  Hugs, Lori xx

Daisy Elf by Aurora Wings

 Hi friends!  I decided to make a clean and simple card using the sweet "Daisy Elf" image by Aurora Wings.  I wanted to add some interest, so I used an embossing folder by Darice called "Scroll Flourish Corner".

This sweet little elf is coloured with Copic markers, as is the butterfly.  The lovely "Leanna Butterfly" die is by Memory Box.  I added glitter to the elf's wings and the butterflies' wings.

That's all from me today. Thank you for visiting. I wish you a wonderful day. Hugs, Lori  xx
