Cuddlemonster

My wonderful friend and team mate Barbara from Forgotten Scraps is giving away her first digi free on her blog and to celebrate that she is also having a little challenge - which is to use her digi on the card. And you can win a real cute prize!

Oh, and apparently you're supposed to maker monsta noises while colouring. Did I? Well, I am NOT volunteering that information, suffice to say Miss Mischief and Sir Sprout were busily disassembling my stash while I was colouring...
It is a quick and simple card but I just HAD TO  play with that cutie.
The papers are from Bella Boulevard and I just chucked on first suitable embellies I found in my stash.

Copic colours:
Pink fur: RV29/25/34/42/11, N5/3
Teal fur parts: BG75/18/72/11, N9/5
Yellow bits: YR23/35/21/12, N5/3 

I'd like to enter these challenges:
Scrap-Creations - love is in the air
Top Tip Tuesday - anything goes
Bunny Zoe's Crafts (2nd monday) - Love is in the air
Karber Weekly - DIGI STAMP and Pearls
Woodware USA (1 entry) - Hearts
One Stitch At A Time - Love and Valentines
Crafty Emma - all creatures great and small

Me and hubby are going for a little grown-up weekend tomorrow (kids will be dumped at nana's, ha! not that they mind...) so I'm off now to schedule my posts for tomorrow and Sunday!

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs.

I love that monster! And I love the mesh underneath him, great idea. It seems something that a monster would stand on, kind of barnlike. I love this.
I was looking through old posts of yours yesterday trying to suck some inspiration from you. Your layouts are so creative and I feel like I'm in a rut. I don't know how you come up with such variety. My image seems to take up all the room and there's no room for anything else. But if there were room I don't know what I'd do with it. Ho hum..the life of a crafter...

Therese said...

Happy new year Annika! :)
