Glitter n Sparkle DT - Use Some Blue

Hello, everyone.  A warm welcome to my two newest followers, Lisa and Suzanne. Thank you for following and I hope you like what you see!  Well, it's Sunday so that means it's time for a new challenge over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog. This week we would like you to Use Some Blue. I love it when I get a kitty image to play with so you know I was happy again this week! Look at this Party Cat from QKR Stampede - he's having a blast!

I also received this cute sentiment from QKR Stampede called Cats Are so I used it inside my card and followed the same layout as on the front but varied the colours a bit, using my scraps.

Inside Card

Here are the supplies used:

  • Digi stamps:  Party Cat and Cats Are from QKR Stampede
  • Rubber stamp:  Sentiment on card front (The Old Island Stamp Company)
  • Colour medium:  Prismacolor Pencils
  • Marker:  Staedtler (for doodling stitching on patterned paper)
  • Patterned paper:  Cosmo Cricket
  • Vellum:  Memories Forever
  • Gems:  Dollarama

I hope you can join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Use Some Blue challenge.  We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs this week, thanks to our generous sponsors:
Crafty Sentiments - 3 images

Thank you for looking at my card - I look forward to reading your comments. Wishing you a joyful day!


  1. Cute! and oh so true! I miss my kitty. Did I mention we recently tried to adopt a kitty from the humane society. As a child, I was allergic to cats. Then we adopted a wonderful shorthaired kitten, and he did not usually bother me - though occasionally my allergies acted up. He was my best little fur friend from 20 years. So I'm thinking it was a blessing to enjoy this one kitty, and know what it is like to live with cats, for those 20 years, and I may not be able to do it again. They are remarkable "people".

    Your card is cute with the horizontal panels and your zany little character! hugs, de (who hopes your renovations are moving right along)
