Can You Dig It?!

Happy Hump Day everyone!

I'm back with a special card kit that's been month's in the making! My dear friend Mary sent Kadie and I a card kit a long while back and we've been so busy with other things in life that we never got around to creating or posting a card with it...until today!

Anyone who knows me, knows I love a good laugh, so when I opened Mary's card kit and saw this guy for the first time, I busted out laughing in my craft room! And anyone who knows Mary, knows that she loves a good play on words! What a riot this guy is!

His name is Zed and he's from the set of Creatures II stamps from Starving Artistamps - one of mine and Mary's favorite stamp companies! As usual, I colored him up with my reinkers and aqupainter brush using SU's Cool Caribbean. Then I cut him out popped him on dimensionals. The base of the card was created using the papers from Mary's card kit. She said the papers were from Prima and I think I might have to use them again on another card soon, because they're so funky! The buttons and ribbon were from Mary's kit too. If the black cardstock looks like it has a bit of sparkle to it; it's because it does. I haven't replenished my cardstock stash in a while, so the only black paper I could find was the black glitter paper I had left over from all my Halloween cards! Waste not, want not! :) If the layout looks familiar, it's because I borrowed the sketch from Jen's i{heart}2stamp April challenge.

I hope you enjoyed my card today! I'm off to check out what Mary and Kadie have created using the same supplies! You should too!

Thank SO MUCH for stopping by today!

Hahaha!!! Sandra this is awesome. Of course your coloring is always gorgeous. Love that layout and I think it is funny that you and Kadie have the same blog title and that you and I colored Zed almost the same color. We missed you in Seattle, but hopefully we can all get together soon.

hmmmm, I see, just Mary is your dear friend, eh? LOL! :)
I always love when we do these cards, because although they are always so different, there are always a few elements that we are on the same wave length together too! I love how we chose the same title and you and Mary colored Zed the same colors! As always I totally love your layout. You did such a great job of using so many of these fab papers...I kept hemming and hawing over them. Love the stitching too! Can't wait til we get to do it again! HUGS HUGS HUGS and little Winston and Charlie kisses. :)
