Up, Up and Away

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

I'm Guest Designing again at Penny Black Saturday Challenge.

This challenge is always Anything Goes using Penny Black items with an
optional theme.  This month's theme is TRANSPORT.

This sweet kitty is being transported through the sky with a balloon bouquet.
See her waving? The stamp gives her an expression of surprise.
I turned it into a smile because it looks like fun.

I've stamped her with Memento ink and used my Zigs to
color the image.

I'll send it to my friend that moved to Denver recently.

And then I found this Party Cat & mouse in my UFO box all colored
and ready to go.

The little mouse is on a wobbler on his way to deliver a cash gift.  :-)

I hope to see you in the gallery at

You 'had me' at grey-striped cats, Bonnie! This first little sweetie is up-and-a-WAY too cute - it certainly does look fun! BOTH cards are darling reasons to party!

Bobby said...

I have that stamp set and you've given me some wonderful ways to use the images, Bonnie. Beautiful coloring and I love the multiple frames around them on the second card.

Brenda said...

I love your first card Bonnie, that image is just so cute! I love how you turned the surprise expression into a smile, and yep, I see this kitty waving. lol Too cute! Your second card is equally adorable, and I love the mouse running in with his cash gift. lol The background embossing is so pretty too, looks like air rushing in with the mouse. Hugs, Brenda

Outstanding painting on both of these, Bonnie. They are so well designed. That kitty floating with the balloons just made me smile and LOVE your background on the second card. I spy more stamps I would love to have.

Susan said...

Two adorable cat cards! Especially the second one - love the way you did the hedgehog and invitation on a separate small panel and also the bright cheerful colours.

Marcia Hill said...

Awwwwww...both of these cards totally made me smile Bonnie! That little kitty flying away with the balloons is just so ADORABLE, and YAY for finding an already colored image for your 2nd card (I love it when that happens!!)...sure makes creating a 2nd card a snap, doesn't it??!! Cute, CUTE cards my them both!! Hugs. :0)

Two cute critter cards, Bonnie! Both are beautifully colored, and I love that you changed the kitty's facial expression. Who wouldn't smile when you are transported through the sky with balloons of rainbow colors?
The wobbling hedgehog must be so welcomed, especially when he's delivering a cash gift! ;-)

These are both so cute. The theme is a fun one and the cats are adorable. I love that triple color framing on the second card. It really stands out.

My Paper Epiphany said...

Two super cute cards Bonnie! Great colouring:)

Sarn said...

Love everything about BOTH cards Bonnie. They are both so cute.

Thanks for coming to play in the Snippets Playground. I've tables set up behind the Playground bike sheds with pitchers of SaRngria available if you fancy a tipple! xxx

Di said...

Hi Bonnie - lovely to see you in the Playground! I did giggle about Sarn's SaRngria. In Spain,it's often made from the roughest and cheapest red wine available. Then they weave their 'magic',aka add rough brandy and a ton of fruit and sparkling water (only a tiddle of the water). The next day you wake up feeling like you died - and, if not - then you sure want to. Told in memory of many youthful holidays in Spain and the Mediterranean!

Back to the card - it's huge fun. We all adore Penny Black and your wobble is the icing on the cake! Love it.



TK said...

Adorable! Such fun and fancy-free cards, definitely brings a smile to my face

Loll said...

Two fabulous kitty cards Bonnie! :) The first just makes me smile with the kitty being carried away by the balloons. So sweet! The second is so adorable. Love the big party cat! ... and so fun to make the mouse carrying the all important cash gift, into a wobbler. Great work, my friend! xx

Trina P. said...
