No electricity=Productive stamping time!

Hi again!  Just wanted to share what I made last night and today while we had no power!  The horrendous storm took out trees, power lines and part of our roof!  It was a doozie!  We just got power back and I am happy to be back online!  So here's what I did:

The first card is Surfer Ian.  I was in the mood for some sunny, bright colors last night.  So I went with the colors on the DCWV paper I used with surfboards all over it.  The layout is from Lili of the Valley.  It also fits the challenge at Daring Cardmakers "Here comes the sun."  Cute Daisy May is flowers and ABC is O is for One paper. 

The second card is Reeta.  We all know I love my Greeting Farm stamps!  This was the first time inking her up!  She was a Christmas gift.  I used the sketch from Papertake WeeklyAly's Sunday Sketch challenge this time was to include cats on your project.  Creative Inspirations was Monochromatic.  And again, One Paper at ABC.  Finally, ribbons and sparkle fit the challenge at C.R.A.F.T

The last card is the Whimsy Cat and Goldfish.  The inspiration for the crazy coloring of this sly kitty is the people I babysit for have a "money" cat.  And she just gave birth to 5 kittens...one of which looks just like her!  So I tried to mimick some of her markings...lol!  I also coated the fish bowl with Glossy Accents. The flowers are Primas.  I distressed all the edges with cocoa ink.  The layout is from Inspirational Card Sketches.  The theme at Saturday Spotlight AND Tuesday Taggers is Messy.  My Time to Craft is In the Frame. Aly's wanted cats and Crafty Pad wanted to see the colors Blue, Brown, Cream or White. 

I think that about covers it for now!  Have a great weekend!  See you Tuesday for Creative Card Crew!
