So what if....

the Indianapolis Colts had won the Super Bowl, you ask? Okay, so maybe YOU didn't ask, but someone DID ask that I share the blue and white project I had waiting in the wings for this last K.I.S.S. I mentioned on Sunday that I had a project in each team's colors for my K.I.S.S. project and was waiting for the final score. If Peyton had stayed in peak performance & had led his team to victory, my post would have included this:Very simple but very pretty. I used a distressed blue dotted paper from the Scrapbook/Craft section of King's (a local northern Utah store) that I picked up a couple of summers ago, a white heart paper doily, two blue silk flowers, and a half pearl. I really like how it turned out.

Now this darling image below is "Manga Boy" from Funky Kits, UK. Chris got him (& a few others) for me as an early Valentine's gift and in celebration of the Colts making it to the Super Bowl. I had stamped the image last week as soon as I had him mounted on cling cushion, but didn't get to "play" with him till last night. He's just OODLES of fun to color with my COPIC markers & I've got some ideas to change up his look a bit for future cards. You know, make him not so conservative or traditional and more....Manga. *LOL* Right now, he kinda looks like my scruffy-headed boys!This is another image that Chris got for me from Funky Kits. I just love Leanne Ellis & I've played with her artwork, with her permission, on here before. I'm entering this lovely in Frosted Designs "Valentine Challenge" because they want you to use ANYTHING BUT pink or red. This definitely qualifies! *LOL* I used a brown patterned background paper from MME, paper doily inked with Ranger Distress colors of Tea Dye, Vintage Photo, and Walnut Stain. I used a blending stump, a bit of water and the same inks to color the image. The hearts & wings are "sugared" with antique linen Distress Stickles.I have also had a request to show how I made that flower last week. Well, when I made one Sunday for the Saints card, I made sure I took pix of the steps I used to make them. I also made some in different sizes, as well. As soon as I have all the pictures watermarked, I'll post them for you.

Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!
