I'm feeling orange.

Todays cards took what seemed like forever. I fooled with paper all afternoon and then remembered the Cuttlebug. Why did it take so long. First card uses an image from Inkadinkado. Their stamps are all so nice. Well I colored in the flowers on the bird with my atyou Spica glitter pens. My newest favorite coloring supply item. Then I Cuttlebugged just half of the background. Made scor marks with my Scor pal between the embossed part and the plain part. Embossed a Nestabilities Oval. Sponged the edges with butterscotch ink. Sponged the same color on the oval. I stamped the bird then used my Nestabilities die to punch it out also. Then added white dots with my Inkssentials white pen. Finished it up with some ribbon, pearls and a paperclip. The next card uses an image from I Brake for Stamps. It's from the Time to Stamp line. I colored this one in with chalk. Added it to a Nestabilities Oval that I sponged and pierced. Pulled out a piece of my favorite background. Added a slice of Cuttlebug background and a sentiment from The Angel Company and another one is completed. YEAH!! Then I tore my stamping corner completely up and reorganized. I had grown tired of all the white plastic carts with drawers. Borrowed a piece of furniture from the spare bedroom and before you knew it I was completely moved around. Every drawer cleaned. So much happier with the way it looks now. So now I'm ready to begin stamping again.

Love the first card and the second one is just as wonderful! I am going to have to check out Inkadinkado for sure!
