Animal Cards

Hi Peeps, I can't believe its been so long from my last post! Its not that I haven't been crafting because I have, I just haven't been posting thats all. To be honest quitting smoking is really taking it out of me, I am totally exhausted and I feel so yucky I'm finding it hard to get myself motivated to do anything! Thought I was supposed to feel great! Well I'm staying positive and I KNOW I'm going to be feeling great any day now......do I sound convincing? lol. During a surge of energy I had, think it was day 23 and lasted about 4 hrs lol, I made a batch of cards to give to a local animal sanctuary so I took some quickie pics to show you, they are all animals and are coloured using different techniques, inks, pencils and markers etc. So here they are:
I have used the same colour combo with these cards, I think More Mustard and Ruby Red look great with the animals, all from the Earth Elements set.
How sweet are these little bunnies?

I've coloured these cats with markers and gone with a different colour combo, Old Olive and Ruby Red. There was also a lot of doodling going on in all these cards, especially faux stitching. I am entering these cards into a few challenges:

What a great stamp, and gorgeous colouring!!

Congratulations on giving up smoking. I gave up just under four years ago, and whenever I felt like having a cigarette I used to say to myself either, "don't be stupid, you've just had one", or "you daft bat, you don't have any, so tough", lol, I know they sound a bit daft, but it worked, along with reading Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking, fab book and really makes you think.
I also used to do the thing I would next do after having a cigarette, so that in my mind, I've already had one... anyhoooo, good luck!!

Love Roz x
