Wee Little Note

Playing with Hamlet
I am playing with this adorable digi Hamlet PigWit Being Shy by From The Heart Stamps. 
I just love pigs.  This guy is such a cutie.   I also used a set from SugarPea Designs, Noted.  I have been enjoying using this set lately.  I printed out Hamlet and the sentiment then stamped the paper lines over him.  I wanted it to look like he was drawn and colored on notebook paper. 
Shoot I just barely missed the FTHS i{heart}sketches with a twist #137. 

This is also for Simon Says Stamp's

For my card for the Cox Family, 
I used two fun sets, Sketchy Cities America 2 from Altenew and Foxy Friend from SugarPea Designs.  I live just about 40 miles from this city of Seattle, so this is one of my favorite stamps.  I thought it would translate to Thinking Of You From Seattle Wa.  I love to make CAS cards and love rainbow colors so I combined them and only colored the Wheel.

Shabby Chic Birdbrain

Birdbrain Birthday

I went a different route making this card than usual.  
As I made it for the challenge below, I went with the no line coloring technique. So I printed out my image in a light grey than colored with Copics.  I distressed the paper edges for the ShabbyChic twist. 

I used this awesome digi Birthday Candle Birdbrain by From The Heart Stamps.
And I used a sentiment from the Happy Birthday set by A Jillian Vance Design.

Simple Chilly Willy Bella

What's up Bella
I just had to scoop this cutie up the other day Chilly Willy Bella from Sassy Cheryl's Stamps. 
And she comes in four different versions. You gotta check her out.  Cheryl has been busy creating different Bella digis lately and they are sooooooooooo cute. 

I just wanted to whip up an quick and easy card. 
I cropped Bella in Microsoft Publisher then placed her in the bottom right corner of my card with my computer generated sentiment.  I colored with Copics just simply, no shading, colorbook style. Then just added a score line for interest and done!
