Glitter n Sparkle DT - Female Cards

Hello, everybody.  Did you miss me?  I bet you didn't even know I was gone hehe. I've had computer troubles and have been offline since Friday.  Part of the problem has been fixed, but unfortunately there's also a problem with my hard drive, which may fail at any moment. So frustrating!  I'm going to keep using it until I find out if the warranty covers the repairs, or until it fails, whichever comes first!  

While I was away, I have had two lovely new followers, so I would like to welcome Milla Flesche and Ardyth Percy-Robb - so nice to have you join me!

Now on to my card... A new challenge started on Sunday over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog.  This week we would like to see your Female Cards. You all know how much I love kitties, so I had a lot of fun with this week's sweet image. It's called Kitty in Window from Inky Impressionsand I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils.  You will notice I paper-pieced the curtains and popped up the top of the curtains with foam tape.  I also fussy-cut and popped up the kitty.  

Here are the other items used:
  • Patterned paper:  K and Company
  • Digital sentiment:  MyGrafico 
  • Clear stamp:  Clearly Besotted Leafy Accents
  • Ink:  Ancient Page Leaf Green
  • Die cuts:  Leaves (Clearly Besotted Leafy Accents), cat (Poppy Stamps), border and doily (Spellbinders Moroccan Accents)
  • Accents:  Charm (Inky Impressions), crinkle ribbon (won in a challenge - thank you, Karen), flowers, wooden butterfly, crystal flower, gems, glittery flower and butterfly stickers (dollar store)

I hope you can join us at Glitter n Sparkle for our Female Cards challenge.  We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs again this week, thanks to our generous sponsors:

Forgot to mention that I hope your computer does not fail or if it does that you can get it fixed. I had a laptop bite the dust and luckily I had backed up on an external hard drive. It was a Dell and hubby bought me a Toshiba (sold this one at our yard sale) which he then upgraded me to an HP Mother's Day last yr, 2013, that I like a lot.

jimlynn said...

Hi, Kitty! I have so missed visiting your lively blog and wonderful cards. This one is no exception - so sweet! and very girly. I had a soft stuffed animal - a long-haired white kitty. She was nearly 50 years old, and I was sad to finally say farewell, but the little girl who has her now loves her dearly. Isn't that funny? Your white kitty is so pretty! Cute Cute! hugs, de who thanks you for your caring comments.
