Loving Critters

Hi everyone! I'm still here!!! It's been a really busy week so I haven't had a chance to post in a couple days. Today I want to share some clean & simple cards I've been working on for Operation Write Home. I used the digitally colored piggy image and patterned paper from the Loving Critters digital stamp set by Clear Dollar Stamps.

My husband thought I should include a sentiment so I created this second card with the "sending my love" message.  This last card was inspired by a technique I've been wanting to try for some time now, using scored lines to create texture in the background.

I used Ruby Red for all my card bases and paired it with Cool Caribbean cardstock or digital patterned paper from the Loving Critters stamp set. The cute piggy image was printed on White Cardstock and layered on Ruby Red.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
