Birthday Birds

I needed YET ANOTHER birthday card...This time for my step-father. He likes owls, so I used this stamp from Inky Antics (I think...) and paired it with a saying I have in a set by Inkadinkado. I had the image colored some time ago, but it had never found its way to a card until now.

Spring in your step

Another fun digi stamp from Hambo! I was trying to come up with some pithy saying about the whole "Spring Forward time change," but I DETEST losing an hour of sleep...and I DON'T CARE that it is daylight longer in the evenings...BAH....

So...since I was having mucho problems getting up for work yesterday, I decided to add the saying "Put a Spring in your step" in hopes that it would help me get my keister out of bed. Nope...didn't work. Oh well, maybe it will help someone else!

Copic Colors Used:
Bunnies: C00, C0, C2, C3
Bellies: RV0000, RV000
Shoes: YG11, YG13, YG17

Computer Bugs?

I love this digi stamp from Hambo and had it colored for a while, but I was struggling with what to put on the monitor as the message. I spent a long time on the phone with my brother looking for a sentiment using computer terminology, but to no avail. Well...we came up with a few ideas, but they weren't G-Rated! I ended up doing some "Google-ing" and came up with this phrase. It was attributed to someone, but I can't remember who. Anyway...thought this turned out nice!

Copic Colors Used:
Mousepad/Computer Tower/Monitor: B91, B93, B95, B97
Keyboard/Mouse: W00, W0, W1, W3
Flowers: Y11, Y13, Y15; E33 (centers)
