DigiStamp Boutique...Olivia


Hello everyone, big hurrah for the weekend and I'm especially excited coz I've got next week off work and I'm so looking forward to the break. Fingers crossed the weather stays nice for us...I'll be miffed if it rains!

Well it's not often you see me twice in one day but I'm here to share this cute lil' kitty called Olivia with you today and she's from the DigiStamp Boutique (link below).  I had great fun colouring her in and I think this image could be used for so many different occasions, it's so versatile.

I bought these card bases in the Craftwork Cards sale recently and it wasn't until they arrived that I realised a square mat didn't look too good on them at all. I had a rare light bulb moment and dusted off my Cricut machine and bingo a circular mat did the job nicely!

Donna, I love the papers and the way you color this precious little kitty! Your colors are so pretty. You really know how to define your characters with your delightful touch - the shadow effects - just superb! You really know how to make them so perfectly; the different mats, flowers and embellishments. I so adore your work! Thanks for always inspiring me! Have a good week! :-)
