Gardening Kitty for Dad

Hello, everyone.  Before I share today's card, I would like to welcome my two newest followers - Marji Franklin and Danielle Vincent - so happy to have you here with me! A special thank you to all my followers - it makes me happy just to know you're looking at my cards!  Your sweet comments make my day!

Here's the Father's Day card I made for Dad.  I mailed it yesterday so he'll receive it by the weekend.  Dad loves gardening so, of course, I found a gardening kitty!  I think my parents would be shocked if there was no kitty hehe!  The image is a freebie from Sliekje (thank you), and I coloured it with my Prismacolor pencils.  The "No. 1 Dad" sentiment is from a See-D's Father's Day rubber stamp set, and the "You're the Best" is from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings clear stamps.  

Here's the inside.  I thought this was the perfect sentiment from Prickly Pear - it's one of their newer rubber stamps (I won it in a recent blog hop - thank you!).

Here are the other supplies used:
  • Dies:  Cheery Lynn Ivy Strip, Die-Namics Sunflower, Nellie's Classic Multiframes Circles, Joy Craft Sun, Poppy Stamps Curious Cat
  • DP:  Recess of Carson-Dellosa
  • Embossing folder:  Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes
  • Punch:  Dollarama
