Hello friends!! Happy April Fool’s Day! 🙂
Well, there’s “no fooling” here today as I bring you a post to share the creation, I’ve made for a new challenge over at the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Challenge Blog! Since it’s the first of April, we have a new challenge starting with the “Anything Goes + critter” theme in mind! Hope you will join us with your critter creations!
We are being sponsored by Digi Doodle Studios and this is the card I made for the challenge this month:
Our sponsor was kind enough to share this very sweet image called Mia which I’ve used for my card today. This is my first experience with these images, and I must say they have some really cute ones in their store, so hop on over and check them out!
I’ve colored her up with Copic markers including drawing extended lines for the grass and coloring it up all the way across and down. I cut it out with a cross stitched rectangle die and then used a sun ray stencil to ink some yellow behind her by taping off the grass edge, so I didn’t get any on that part. I then stamped the sentiment in black ink over top of that.
To continue on with the yellow color theme I’ve got going on, I cut out a piece of yellow glitter cardstock that was cut out with a scallop rectangle die (retired from Lawn Fawn) and attached it to the back of the image panel. I took some plaid papers for the bottom portion of the A2 white top folding card base and then attached some yellow grosgrain ribbon across the top and then attached the image panel and then added a yellow ribbon bow along the edge. Lastly, I finished it out with some yellow rhinestone crystals.
Here’s a closer look at the coloring I’ve done on the image. I took a black gel pen to color in the eyeball’s circles. I wasn’t sure how to go about coloring the eyes, but this is the way that made the most sense to me. I also went around the edges of the butterfly with the black gel pen. I took a glitter brush pen and went over the liquid in her cup.
I have to add that this image really got me thinking about past memories with my sweet little Mocca and how we would go out on nice Spring days like this. She certainly was always “my happy” for sure and I still miss her like crazy. I’m sure any of you that have lost pets understand what I’m saying. It’s great to have the memories we’ve shared after all this time!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it so much!

I love this, Vicki! Wonderful sentiment and that sunshine background makes me think of spring. Or maybe it’s the 72 degrees coming through my window right now. 😀 Nope, it’s your card that makes me feel so happy. Hugs.
What a beautiful and cheerful card with the beautifully colored Mia and sunrays! I love her eyes and hair and the darling puppy by her side. The yellow theme is great (one of my favorite colors). I love the yellow glimmer paper and gorgeous and colorful plaid. Love the card, sweet Vicki! Hugs!

That is so kind! Thank you so much for your comment and I’ll be checking out the challenges! 🙂 Your images are so cute!
Wonderful image! Thank you for entering our challenge at Allsorts this week.
A great card, wonderfully designed, Vicki. I understand that she has summoned the image of your Mocca. He was a happy dog and he knew that you loved her very much. I also lost some animals and I know what you feel. Such a loss is never filled, a hole remains in the heart.
This is just so adorable and I love how you used yellow. Thanks so much for joining in with my use yellow challenge at Allsorts.
What a beautiful job you’ve done with sweet Mia! Wonderful colouring of the image and you’ve created a lovely background for them and chosen the perfect paper! I’m so sorry you don’t have your precious Mocca by your side anymore. I know that pain 💔 Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful card with us at Digi Doodle Studios, and for showcasing Mia so beautifully!
Mia and her fuzzy little one are adorable. Love the yellow theme. Thank you for joining us over at Crafty Gals Corner Challenge. Best of luck and hope to see you again soon! DT~Jana Forrest
