Koalas are such adorable creatures.  I've had the joy of actually cuddling one at Australia Zoo.  Their fur is soft and fluffy, and they cling onto you when you hold them, making your heart expand to dangerous levels!

This cutie is one of the images included in the Koala-fied Pairables set at Digi Doodle Studios.  I have coloured the image with markers and used a KaiserCraft circle die to cut it out.  I used the same circle die to cut the curved edge of the sentiment.  

The sentiment is part of a magazine freebie set.  

I wanted to keep the background as muted as possible, to allow this gorgeous image to pop.  I used papers from the Heartfelt Creations Coffee Talk Collection.  The leaves are Sizzix Tim Holtz die cuts.  I've also added Pearls from Ultimate Crafts and Craft Consortium.

There are fantastic Pairables available in store, which allow you to make loads of cards, mixing at matching the images to suit your imagination. 

We share Digi Doodle inspiration in our Facebook group daily, so be sure to pop in for a look: 

For all things utterly adorable:

Thanks for popping in for a little look today.  I'll be back with more koala-fied love on the 19th.
