K is for . . . "Kissy"

Happy Thursday!! I feel like it's been ages since our last challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog!! But . . . I've been keeping busy, busy, busy hanging out over at Bronte & Bella's Clubhouse. Mo calls it "BBC" . . . while I call it "The Clubhouse"! Whatever we call it, it's FUN!! If you haven't stopped by to check it out, please do!!

So . . . on to this fortnight's challenge!! The very talented and super sweet Miz Anja is our hostess!! And she's chosen an Alphabet themed challenge . . .

K is for . . . !
(Kisses, kick, kite, Kansas, Kady, etc.)

And here's my little creation . . .
Hehe! This image just tickles me!! This cutie is called "Kissy" and is available HERE in Mo's online store. Here's a close-up . . .
I wanted to go for a softer look . . . so, instead of printing this digi image with black ink, I used sort of a sepia ink color. I love how it turned out!! Here's another view . . .
I made a little "Crossover" card . . . some people call it "Criss Cross" . . . other's call it a "Pocket Card" . . . I just call it FUN! I love making these! Here's a peek at the card insert . . .
