BFF and ever

Family history continues...

This is definitely my brother :) with our cat called Lucifer. Lucifer was big, orange tabby and when I saw Mo's image (Tolerance by name), it clicked and I knew I found a perfect one. My brother has probably never raised this finger or wrist against anyone. Peace loving gentleman he is. From very young age he designed clothes and assumably these trousers he is wearing are decorated by him. For some reason he is a bit pale on the card, but that's just the light.

This is the first time I tried to colour sky, also this is the first time I have a card with digi from Mo. Her designs are warm and full of life. My colouring is based on Dorcas' teachings! Thank you both!

Cardstock - Tesco
Digi - Mo Manning (MY FIRST)
Pencils - Prismacolors
Die Cut - Fiskars
BP - digital doodling
Embellishments -  from my bottomless jars
Specials - To My Brother

Challenges, my card fits to, are:
Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge - Challenge #68 "Lots of Love"
Dutch Dare Card Challenge - #98 - Buttons, Buttons, Whose Got The Buttons

Hi Ho, Lets Go!


  1. Awwww, how cute! I know I love Mo's images too, because they really do imitate real attitudes. You did a great job coloring, too. Oh, and once you buy one digi, you'll be hooked. No waiting around to get them in the mail, and you can make them any size you need. Hugs, dj

  2. This is wonderful. Love your colors and the story you told!!! Thanks for playing the Mo's Challenge this week :)

  3. So cute Annemaritta! Cool colors! You did a great job on your clouds! Mine did not come out that good! Nice job!

  4. Hi Annemaritta,
    You did a good job on this! The cat's fur looks quite real, doesn't it? I'm glad you got the guts up to try the clouds. It WILL get easier.My advice would be go very lightly and add more layers of color as you need them. You can always add more color but you can't take it away.You got the shape of the clouds perfectly, they look like they could just float off the page. :-) Very wispy and cloud like. lol

    Great job!

  5. Hi!
    You did a very good job on coloring the picture! I really like the clouds - I was not so "brave" to try them until now... ;-)
    Hugs, Uli

  6. Well done with your clouds, I haven't given it a try yet, another thing I have to add to my list of must do's lol. Love your story, and the card is so cute. Great touch with the button on the cats bow. Hugs lin

  7. awwwww, Annemaritta, how absolutely fabulous!! I love your clouds! I need to try these too...Dorcas' tutorial was awesome, wasn't it?!! And you've learned the technique beautifully!! I am so tickled that you love Mo's images...and am especially thrilled that you decided to enter this week's challenge!! Once you enter, you're hooked! And wait 'til you see what our challenge is next week. You're going to love it!! Pat Frank
