Fussy Cutting with Di's Digi Downloads

 It's time for another For Fun Challenge! The theme? Kids at play. I know. Kids. Not my forte' but luckily Di's Digi Downloads has some super cute images of kids and animals being adorable together. :)
 So, here's my card sample. I used one of my favorite paper lines, DeLovely! Those colors just jump off the page with vibrant pinks and greens that really work for any season. In spring, it's the color of new growth. In summer, bright pool toys and beach towels. In fall, it reminds me of brand new book covers and back to school clothes (yeah, I know. I'm in my 30's and yet you never seem to forget that back-to-school excited feeling. The OCD in me just eats up that delicious brand-new school year clean feeling that makes autumn feel so fresh, like anything can happen. You have a whole new chance to start over. Moving on, these colors also remind me of ultra-bright Christmas lights that are so very red, they glow pink and so very green, they glow a bit bluish.

I colored several copies of the image I used, then cut out the dog, flowers, butterfly, teddybear, and bow, layering over the original copy of the stamp with pop dots. I took this photo at an angle so you can see the dimension more clearly. The brads were from my stash. I was lucky to find ones that matched so nicely.

I'm entering this card in the Stitchybear Use-any-digi challenge. Wish me luck!

Kitty Break! Kitty Break! Okay, it's more of a finale than a break this time since Toulouse is winding up this week's post. And yes, he is our Mega Scratcher. He doesn't seem to know that his claws retract so he has a habit of accidentallly causing bleeding in his overenthusiasm. He doesn't mean it though. He just wants to play.

So, stop by For Fun Challenges and play along with the "Kids at Play" challenge and win some fabulous digi stamps of your own. She has a slew of stamps too choose from. I dare you to visit her store without falling for at least one. :)
