Kitties for Jen


This is my card for this month's Sketch For Your To Try.   It never ceases to amaze me how quickly a month can go by!  Seems like just yesterday when it was the beginning of April!

I decided to use this adorable kitty image from There She Goes Catitude set.  Love this set, especially since we have a cat and my daughter is cat crazy :)   SO many fun images and sentiments that are "all cat" LOL!

I coloured the image with Twinkling H2Os and just had to use this paw print DP :)   Played around with which colours to use for some time and finally settled on these as pink and turquoise were just a bit too much for me this morning LOL!  A touch of twine adn a few dew drops (remember those LOL) and I called it a card.

Have a purrrrrfect day :)

Stamps:  (There She Goes) Catitude
P aper:  Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Cat Print DP, Brown  
Ink: Black
Accessories:  Twinkling H2Os, Pink Bakers' Twine, Dew Drops, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Paper Piercer, Dimensinals

Awww...isn't this just too cute?! My daughter used to love cats (she took in strays and we had as many as 7 one time - too many for me! Now she's totally a dog person - one dog!).

Those kitties are adorable!!! My youngest always wanted a cat-- kinda adopted one for a couple days and she was so allergic-eyes watering and red, sneezing, wheezing etc.- she kept trying to tell me it was just seasonal allergies because she wanted to keep that kit tie so bad!! Any who... Blather a little there??? Love the colors, twine, paper piercing!,
