2019 Cat Lovers Hop - Day 2

Hello, everyone!  Before I get started, I would like to welcome two new followers - jenny Ginger Ninja Crafts and Surekha Galagoda - thank you for joining me!

Today is Day 2 of the 2019 Cat Lovers Hop!  Thank you to Janis at Her Peaceful Garden for organizing this fun hop for us cat lovers!  Guidelines and FAQ can be found here.  I hope you will join!


Today I'm sharing a fall-themed thank-you card featuring an adorable ginger tabby in a pile of leaves (Newton's Nook - Autumn Newton).  Thank you to Newton's Nook for sponsoring the Cat Lovers Hop every year since the hop started in 2015!


I coloured the image and leaves with my markers (Bic Mark-its and Dollarama Crafts) and then fussy-cut. The sentiment is from the same set, which I also fussy-cut. To make this little scene, I die-cut a tree (Cheery Lynn Birch Tree) and grass (Lawn Fawn Grassy Border) and added a number of metallic leaves and gold leaf-shaped sequins, along with a wooden pumpkin.  The patterned paper is from Pretty Painted Floors 6x6 paper pack.
