Basik & K Thinking of You

Oh dear... what a moan I am having today!    I am really running behind, can't believe the month is half done, had an 8 hour meeting (yes, you read that right) yesterday and was hard pressed to get my card done for our Sugar Nellie Inspiration post.  Whew... I made it by the skin of my teeth and have to say, I am not really thrilled with the card.  These new ScrapBerry images at Funky Kits are the cutest little stamps but I was so rushed for time that... well, all I can say is that I wish I'd had more time!
This is one of the new ScrapBerry stamps which has been released at Funky Kits this month and this buggy eyed little cat set is called Thinking of You.  That cat has the funniest expression ever!

Don't forget to enter the challenge at the Sugar Bowl  and check out the Sugar Nellie Blog and the Sugar Nellie Facebook Fan Page for more inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by!
Copics:
Cat - C7, C5, C3, C1.  After colouring in the cat, I took a loopy piece of cloth saturated with Copic Colorless Blender medium and held it down to add some texture.  The mouse was coloured using the lighter gray colours.
Supplies:
Stamp & Sentiment - ScrapBerry's Basik & K Thinking of You
Dies - Sizzix Banner Triplets, Verve Heart Quartet

An 8 hour meeting?? That's brutal! I think you should start taking your card-making goodies to those meetings. It will make them much more enjoyable for you!
Your card is fabulous regardless of the time it took you to create it! :o)

I agree with Nancy, bring a box for coloring and paper a 8 hour meeting could not be productive but card making is! I think the images are very cute and love the little tag, you did well with all the stress and being tired.

For a card done at the last minute, it sure turned out wonderfully! You are blessed with much talent! I love the heart on a tag and the border doodling- trying to find something to say besides- WOW- you color beautifully! : )
