Suzie Q.

Suzie Q.

I’ve been down and out for the past two days with a horrible cold and ear infection…ugh.   This would be me!!   Unfortunately, I haven’t had the energy to even make a single card!!!  

Earlier this week I was playing with some stamps from a company called In Style  stamps.  I really had fun coloring these stamps.  The company designs both retro and anime stamps.  The first one is called Suzie Q., a retro stamp.

I had sooo much fun, I actually used Suzie Q. on another card!

Used some Distress Stickles on her glasses and one of the bags on this one. 
Ooh La La!

Ooh La La!

I wonder what SHE has in her bags!!    🙂

And I also played with one of In Style’s anime stamps.  This cutie is called Jet.  I made this card for my 10 year old grandson, Justus!   🙂     Since I was making a masculine card, I had to stop myself from putting a big red ribbon on this one, that was hard!! 



I really love coloring the eyes on anime stamps.  Here’s the full card and the inside sentiment.    TGIF!!!!!!!
