Ya Gotta Luv Alota




I finally put two cards together yesterday of images that I received from Alota Rubber Stamps and colored right after Christmas. I made the one a Valentine's card (DUH!) and the other is for a baby shower we're invited to. I colored these with my Copics that my husband so generously got me for Christmas. I'm loving these little donkeys and have more colored/to color. The donkeys are in a set called Michelle's Sweet Little Donkeys, and the other is called Walking in the Rain Umbrella. Aren't they just too cute!!! Alota Rubber Stamps issued a sketch challenge beginning the 16th but sadly these won't work, so golly,....guess I'll just have to do another card. Darn! :)
Thanks for stopping by and hope you like these. If you have any of their stamps, join the challenge!

These are both just darling images and such sweet cards. I like that fancy border at the bottom too. Very sweet.

These are adorable, Karen. The punched borders along the bottom look so cool. Darling cards!

Oh my goodness. So glad I stopped by your blog tonight. These cards just made me smile. I just love your attention to detail. The borders on the bottom of both these cards are so nice. The little embellishments are also just perfect.

Both of these are adorable...precious...darling...and every other word that says INCREDIBLY CUTE!!!! I love your Valentine, but the donkey has captivated my heart!!! The way you colored him reminds me of Eeyore...and I LOVE EEYORE:o) I have collectibles of him everywhere. I also love how you paired up the lace doily punch and the zig-zag punch...beautiful!!! I think I will be adding that effect to future cards...if you don't mind.

You have always done a smashing job with your color pencils, but you are equally as talented with your Copics! It seems you are a natural:o) Now, you wanna come show me how to use my markers;o)

Love ya!
Carolyn
