Clever Bugs

A bit late, but here's another couple of images for a fun graduation card.

Hope you like them.

Available in the shop, direct link here.

Anna and the Beach Ball

Anna loves the beach and she never forgets to bring her ball to play - she lives in Dublin so often it is too cold for a swim :-)
I also made a variation with a butterfly so that she can be used with the next challenge which will go live tomorrow, wink, wink.

Available in the shop, direct link here.

The Owl Family

Sometime ago, Kate, Wendy and Dotty Jo suggested that I made an owl image. It took a while but here it is - the whole family in fact.

Love Tree biggest fans - edited again!

I haven't posted Mami Doodles cards besides the DT for a while - let me show some today. Sarah and Lynda are the Love Tree image biggest fans, and I decided to dedicate a post to their work. But if you have also used the image, please let me know and I'll add your work here.

This is Sarah's, oh so elegant - I love that the left the image unpainted, the swirlys and the dangling hearts.

Lynda's monochromatic card with just little pops of red is so eye catching!

Lynda's beautifully framed card:

I am lucky, with these talented girls any doodle can become a work of art!

*** Edited to add ***

I forgot to post this one, by Sabrina:

Did you notice the bride's rosy cheeks? Is she blushing? :-)

This is a fabulous easel card by Karen:
