Creatures Double Take


Still lovin' on my creatures so here are 2 cards for your viewing pleasure (if you like these quirky funny creatures) and it seems like lots of you do. You can click on the photos to see them larger.

My 1st card is for John's co-worker who recently had surgery. His co-workers are a great bunch; they do a lot of things together, there is a great comraderie among them & they have fun at work together (it's necessary for them to keep their sanity with the type of work they do) and outside of work. I used to have the same thing when I lived in CA. If you read my blog on a regular basis, you may have heard me mention a group of us go to the movies every other month or so. Basically when there is a great movie out that most want to see - we go right after work. They have department picnics, I went to the Christmas Party last year & there's more. I just really LIKE all of them! Plus it's the best working environment John has ever been in and I am so happy for him - he really deserves it since he is a hard worker & puts his all into it. Well, it wasn't hard for me to come up with a card to suit the occasion and since I have my JustRite monogram stamp I was able to personalize it with the group's name. I just know all of them are missing their co-worker so I placed the miss you in the middle to fill in space. I heard everyone liked the card & it means more business for me because of it *insert happy face*

My 2nd card is for Kazan's Sketch 4 (2 Sketches 4 You) and the Dutch Dare Challenge #5 to use one designer paper on your card. I got my color inspiration for this card from the 1st card. I had several of my copics laying out on the table and saw a great combo so this card was born and when I realized Basic Grey's mellow pad went perfectly with it - I scored!! It's a little busier than I usually do but it really fit the creatures so I went with it. I hand wrote Let's Party because I don't think I have one like that, don't these guys all look like they want to party? Even the little Rupert is bringing a birthday flower to the party.

Augh - you're killing me!!! I have to get these little creatures. I keep showing Gaven your blog to see if it's something he'd like and he keeps giving me this look like "Alright already, I said yes the first 10 times you showed me" - LOL! I like to turn stamps into magnets for him and then he plays with them on this magnet board I made for him. Anyway, love both cards and the colors are so much fun! Thanks for enabling and sharing!

These little guys are adorable...and your cards with them are spectacular! I don't think seeing just a stamp image of them would be that interesting, but you do such an amazing job with them I can't help but love them!

Wow, your DF cards are awesome! I really love what you've done with them. I've always wanted to put all the creatures together, but never got around to it. Seeing all of these make me giddy.
