Grateful Kitty

Hello, everyone, and a warm welcome to my new followers - so happy to have you here.  I'm back again today with a thank-you card - I needed a break from the holiday cards LOL.  I'm excited about my brand-new Di's Digi Stamps "For You" kitty - isn't he sweet!  Just got him this morning and received him right away - I love instant downloads!   This is my first image from Diane, and it was so much fun to colour him with my Prismacolor pencils.

I was inspired by my friend Debi B to take part in the Mojo Monday sketch challenge - this is my first time playing.  I'm not great with sketches, but I gave it my best shot.  Here's the sketch I followed:

I used two clear stamps on today's card:  flourishes from Kelly Panacci and sentiment from Inkadinkado.  I used my Cuttlebug Musical Flourishes embossing folder on the yellow panel.  The ribbon and flower are from Dollarama, and the dew drops are from Robin's Nest - I won these in a challenge a while back.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

A card done in cat colors, you are so clever to even think of that, the swirls and dry embossing adds a more realistic touch. Thank you for entering this wonderful work of art with us

I couldn't believe it when you said, "I'm not great with sketches!" Are you kidding? I thought you nailed it! What a wonderful interpretation of the sketch! You made it unique and universal at the same time. I really liked the texture you added with the ribbon, flower and dew drops and the way you worked in flourishes was brilliant! I'm so glad you participated in our Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This really was a great piece to look at!

Wow, this is so cute. Love how you created your own paper by stamping on the base card. Your color combo is wonderful and so as your lay-out. I enjoy this a lot! Thanks for blessing us with your artwork this week at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you with God's Word in Proverbs 18:10 which says, "The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe." God bless, always!
