One in a Minion

Hello, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to welcome two new followers - arlinverna (Verna Angerhofer) and Berni Cuttino - thank you for joining me!


Today I'm sharing a fun card featuring a Knitty Kitty Digis freebie!  This adorable "One in a Minion" image is an exclusive freebie for members of the Knitty Kitty Digis Facebook Group so you will want to head over there and join right away so you don't miss out!  I don't know much about minions but I know cute when I see it hehe!  This digi makes me smile, and the punny sentiment is included as part of the image!


My colouring was done with Prismacolor pencils and I added Glossy Accents to the minion's face. You will notice I modified the sentiment to make it into two lines, and then used it separately from the image for something different. Here are the other products used:
  • Dies:  Memory Box Cross-Stitched Frame Borders, My Creative Time Scalloped Stitched Ovals, Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Stitched Nested Circles, Waltzingmouse Stamps Scalloped Stitched Rectangles, Poppystamps Curious Cat
  • Patterned paper:  Forever in Time
  • Accents: Offray ribbon, Dymo label maker, flower sequins
  • Sketch:  Tuesday Morning Sketches #358 (shown below)

Ah ah ah!!! Too much fun and cool!! These cute kittens and the "minion" have made me laught! I have never seen a similar image, but I think it's very trendy! :D Love the sweet white and blue tones, they are perfect with yellow!And your choice to split the sentiment is so clever, it looks very well! Gorgous bow, too! I must learn to make good bows...
Great work, my lovely friend!
Hope that your life now is a bit more quiet and fun...
