Just hangin' around...

Good morning, everyone!  What a beautiful crisp February morning!  Got a bit on the chilly side here last night, down to minus 10 degrees, but the sunshine that's streaming into my craft room this morning makes up for it!

Today I have another 2 similar cards to share with you, using the same digi image - this one is one of my favourites, it's Hang in There from Chrissy's Digis at Whimsy Stamps...
...I love colouring these little critters, so easy and fabulously cute when they're finished!  Although it is another square card, the rounded corners give it a retro feel...a bit funky!?  Papers are one of my faves, too, Up, up and Away from First Edition - so versatile!..
...The image was coloured with my Promarkers - Skin : Cinnamon, Tan, Antique White (FM); Shell and Pads : Moss, Khaki, Pastel Biege, Cornflower, Arctic Blue, Blue Pearl; Leaves : Olive, Pear Green, Lime Zest; Flowers : Gold, Mustard, Tulip Yellow; Branch : Walnut, Cocoa, Caramel and Sandstone.

I added an outline of the image to the insert and Many Happy Returns sentiment.  I really like the simplicity and layout of this card, so made another in pink...
...this one has to be my favourite, just because it's pink and I love pink in my crafting!  Papers are another 6x6 pad from First Edition called Desert Blooms...yummy!..
...I coloured the skin, branch and flowers the same, just changed the blue to pink shades on the shell and pads using, Antique Pink, Dusky Rose and Pale Pink.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges :
Animal Antics (2nd entry)
Let's see those Animals
Use a digi
Hope you enjoy looking at my work and thanks for dropping by, have a great day!  Lisa x
