Just plain simple ...

 I thought I would do some quite plain cards and as I am not brave enough to stamp directly on to the card blank, I stamped/printed onto cardstock before matting onto cardstock and the card blank.

 How cute is this Crafty Sentiment image???  It so reminded me of my Ellie and her cat Miffy.  I coloured the image with my pens, did some doodling round the edge, added the pearls and sentiment and put it on a card.  Very simple!

Cat: E33, E74, E79  
Embellishments: Flat backed pearls

And now for a new image I got the other day ...
 I love Doctor Who and this is a fab image ... although all that blue was a bit daunting!!  And apparently it is not dark enough according to my hubby!  Anyway - I coloured it in using my pens, stamped the sentiment and added a doodled frame.  This will be winging its way to my brother for hisbirthday in a couple of days.

Well 'Who' would have thought it? A great guy birthday card and I have to go and get that Dr Who image I've been a fan since I watched it as a child. Love the image and whilst your hubby says the TARDIS should be darker I rather like the blue shades you have chosen.
Thanks for sharing at Ooh La La Creations
