Please Mum Can I Keep Them

Little Lori

Hi everyone, have you all been enjoying the lovely sunshine that we've 
been having? It's been glorious here and so I've been catching up on some 
of my jobs that needed doing in the garden, all the planters are now planted 
up with begonias, Geranium's and Night Scented Stock, and the hanging 
baskets are done and the borders are all done now :) 
Did you all have a fabulous Bank Holiday Weekend, I spent some time crafting, 
and finally got to colour up this gorgeous little image from Mitzi. Some time ago 
now Mitzi and I were chatting about our love of kitties, I happened to mention 
a time when I was little when I carried three kittens home to ask my Mum 
if I could keep them lol. Anyway to cut a long story short Mitzi created.......

"Lori The Cat Lady in Training"

Card Recipe
Cream 6x6 card, Nitwits Design Papers, Pink Berrisford Satin Ribbon, 
Hand Tied bow, Pink Pearls & Spellbinders Oval Die

I paper pieced her dress using the same Nitwits Design Papers as the 
background and distressed with SU Crumb Cake

I also added shadows and shading to her dress using Pro/Flexmarkers

To colour this cute little image I've used a selection of Pro/Flexmarkers 
and I've also added Glossy Accents to her lips, eyes & shoes.

I hope that you like her as much as I do :)

  1. Love love LOVE!! What a sweet card, Lorraine! I knew you'd use pink, but the paper piecing of Lori's dress with the same DP on the panels is so clever. What a great design! Thank you again for giving me the inspiration for this image. ;)
