Two Monochrome Cards and Christmas Pics

Hi Blogging Buddies,

Welcome to the weekend!!
We took our two mowers into town today to get serviced and fixed. We have had such lovely rain and humid weather that all the plants are thriving, including the lawn! This means there is lots of mowing to do and our poor machines aren't quite coping. Hopefully after a visit to the Co-op they will be home again soon rearing to go!! Our house may be hidden by an overgrown lawn by then...but what can you do!

Today is my mother-in-law's 60th Birthday and we are going out to dinner tonight. I am really looking forward to it! I made her a card from the whole family in purples because it is her fave colour. I used flower digis from Meljen Designs...I love her digis!

I coloured them with Copics...(using just about every purple I own!)
BV17, BV02, BV00
V17, V15, V09, V06, V04
Outline: BG10

This next card is for my Brother-in-law he loves these types of cars and owns one as well. I just did an image search for this one to colour.
I decided to stay in black and white colours to keep it masculine.

Copics used:
Black: 100
Greys: C-1, C-3, C-5, C-7, B60
Clear and Silver Spica pens
White gel pen

I was putting our Christmas tree up on the 1st of December and Honey our cat was very interested to help. She loves these bells. I always put them on the bottom branches so she can reach up and play with them. I just had to share these cute little photos with you. She looks so serious...probably wants to know why I am gawking at her with a camera!
