Sundae bar at Paper Sundaes

Good morning everyone! Hopefully you are having a great morning, the weather was beautiful yesterday and I am hoping for more of the same today. Today's challenge at Paper Sundaes is a Sundae bar which includes black, sparkle, distressing and flowers. I used everything except the distressing, just not my cup of tea.


This is a new image from Tiddly Inks called Fall Queen and I have used My Minds Eye paper, cut her out with a nestie and a black bow. I am not thrilled with the fur on her face, her muzzle is too dark but I fiddled for over an hour with it and had already finished the other coloring so perhaps we will just assume she was eating chocolate hmmm? The orange flower is Recollections from Michaels. This will be for one of my best friends whose birthday is this week and she also has two cats. This week we are sponsored by Stamp and Create so be sure to play along as they have wonderful stuff in their store!

So gorgeous Amanda. I've been eyeing this little digi in the TI shop and I think I'm going to have to go buy her! I love how you textured her cute face and the papers and flower are so pretty.

Oh Amanda, I am chuckling as the first thing I noticed about your card is just how fantastic her fur on her face looks. I love it and then to read that you are not happy with how she came out just makes my laugh as I tend to be so critical of my things that most people love about them. I think you have done a wonderful job. I also Love, love this MME paper. What is the name of this pad that it came from. It is just beautiful. I hope you are having a great day so far. I am trying to get some mojo to get some work done before 8pm tonight. Hate that I get my mojo right before it is time to wrap it up for the day. lol... Take care. Hugs, Lisa
