Thinking of You Kitty (Squigglefly image)

Hi, everyone.  Before I share today's card, I would like to welcome some lovely new followers - Mary/very_inky_fingers, Brenda/bsl60, Tenia Nelson, Vinita Jain, and Lisa Mensing - I am happy you are here!

My card today features an adorable Kitten by Enid Barnes from Squigglely.  I won a challenge over at Squigglefly, way back in February, and this was my prize - I just couldn't resist this sweet kitten!  I am finally getting her onto a card after all this time.  Boy oh boy, moving and health problems really kept me from crafting up a storm and now I am having fun again!


The only colouring I did is her eyes and I wonder if I just should have left them alone. You may have noticed lately I've done several cards of this style.  That's because I'm making a little gift set of cards for various occasions, so you will be seeing a few more of this style over the next little while as I make the set.  So far I have Christmas, birthday, and thinking of you, so I have a few more to go!

Other supplies used:
  • Patterned paper:  Recollections, Dollarama
  • Die:  Spellbinders Classic Hearts
  • Rubber Stamp:  Sentiment (The Old Island Stamp Company)
  • Accents:  Button, sequins (stash)

I would like to support the following challenges:

Purfect image for you to get at Squigglefly. I didn't know you were moving and having some health issues - that combination is not good! I hope things are getting better. Your card is wonderful! I love the image with the eyes colored or not colored - both work wonderfully. That is one of the wonderful things about her images! Great card and so great to see you in the Squigglefly challenge! Hugz!
