Dream Big

Today I want to share a new digi image that I purchased recently.  This is Wryn from Tiddly Inks.  There are five new designs featuring Wryn.  How cute is she! 
Of course she’s a red head.  I can’t help it.  I love to make all my girls red heads.  I wish mine was still that red and a lot less gray!  That was tmi…ok, onto my card.
The image was printed on Flourishes classic white card stock and colored with Copic markers.  I cut the image using a classic rectangle die from Spellbinders.   I sponged the edges of the image with the die in place using VersaMagic chalk ink in Key Lime.   I did the same using the tag die from Spellbinders for the sentiment.   The patterned paper is all from Pixielicious from Cosmo Cricket.   I used a piece of leftover ribbon and squeaked just enough out for trim and a bow.   Lots of pretty glitter finishes her off.
On another note…I love my cat.  Yes, I really do, but she is always in my way.  And doesn’t care.  See what I mean?  Doesn’t matter how many times I put her on the floor or scold her.  She just jumps right back up and lays flat out on top of whatever I am doing.  My studio, my desk paying bills, laying down reading.  I don’t know how she fits between my chin and the book I am holding but she does.  All. The. Time.   Mind you, I was actually working at my desk when she stretched out here.  I had to get up and get my camera and still she didn’t move.
This is Afton.  Here she’s saying “I’m not in your way or anything, right?'”
“No, seriously, you need to get here?”
No, no…you just get comfortable.  Sorry I disturbed you.  Sigh.

Okay, I'm just dying laughing here! You can't get mad, can you? She's so darn cute! And so is your card! I love those pretty papers, and it's great to see you coloring up something so fun and adorable, which is what I came to associate with you initially. But everything you do is beautiful I really love how you sprinkled the glitter on this.

Love this Wryn card, too. I'm addicted to these images right now! They're so fun to color. :)

ok, so your kitty and our kitties...maybe some relation? She is a gorjuss cat and our does the same thing. If I move from my desk, the siamese is all OVER my desk...looking for something to swat & steal. I am getting sidetracked because I came to comment about this STUNNING card! Oy, I loves me some sweet lil girl images. LOVE LOVE

OMGoodness your Card is just Too CUTE Miss Danielle! Love these Sweet images! Aww and Afton is So Funny! Reminds me of my Max..( short for Maxine) She always had to be in the middle of anything I was doing.. lol.. Used to drive me crazy sometimes.. Even had a few projects go out to friends and family with her little paw prints on them.. 8-)

Happy Weekend!

That is such a sweet image, but I have to say, Afton is even sweeter! My kitty, Moose, loves to be on top of anything paper.
