"Outta Sight, Outta Mind!"

The challenge this week at The Cuttlebug Spot is to take out our coloring tools and coloring some wonderful stamped images with any medium of your choice. I chose to use a Pink Cat Studio stamp I have had stored in my stash (never used) for nearly a year. I colored in the image/s using crayons and colored pencils. Then, I mounted them on coral and brown ovals that were cut using my Creative Memories cutting system (another tool I never seem to use). These pieces were then attached to the paisley patterned paper (from my scrap paper bin) that I embossed using the Perfect Paisley Cuttlebug folder. I also used coral colored ribbon on the side and adhered the border which was cut from the Floral Border Cuttlebug Die (also something in my stash that I have never used). Also, as you can tell, I used my Cat's Eye ink to shade/distress the edges and paisley embossing. The use of materials/tools stored in my stash lets you know that with me things really are, "outta sight, outta mind!"

This card is being sent to my BFF to let her know that I have been thinking of her. We have both been very busy and haven't spent any time together in weeks. So, we do need time to lift up each other. She LOVES getting homemade cards.

I took this photo inside last night. The real colors are little more vivid.

This pic shows the paisley embossing a little better.

I hope you have a great week. I will be MIA for a couple of days due to packing, errands, etc... in preparation to fly to PA for a visit with Aymee. We are going to "crop 'till we drop!"
