Happy Anniversary Kitties

Hello, everyone!  Before I share my card, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Mrs Kreatywna - I am happy to have you here!

I was looking around blogland and spied a couple of challenges that inspired me. With my mojo still missing, I decided to go with it anyway!


My inspiration came from the sketch at Jo's Scrap Shack, the colours at Cupcake Inspirations, and the pop song at Scrap it with a Song (I was inspired by the love theme of Adele's "Love Song"):



I cut navy and white cardstock on the diagonal and pieced them together, embossed with Cuttlebug Cross My Heart, and added a strip of gold glitter paper and gold-trimmed ribbon along the diagonal. The cats are from Marianne Design - A Pair of French Cats, which I die-cut from left-over navy cardstock that has been in my stash for about 10 years!  I affixed them to a circle of gold specialty paper, die-cut with Nellie's Multiframes, and used a white Signo Uniball pen and a navy Staedtler Lumocolor marker to draw dots around the circle and along the diagonal edges. The sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts Everyday Sayings, and I added two glittery punched hearts.

I would also like to join the following challenges:  Craft Your Passion AG 3/3; Crafting by Designs August AG 1/3; Crafty Gals Corner AG 2/2; Creative Ladybirds AG 3/3; Crop Stop Linky Party #6 AG 2/3 (Cuttlebug embossing folders available at Crop Stop)DL.ART July Linky UE 1/day; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Not Just Cards July UE; Penny's Paper-Crafty Use Ribbon or Twine 1/3; Pixie's Snippet Playground All die cuts and cardstock from snippets 2/3; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday AG 2/5; Sister Act (Cards Only) AG UE; The Corrosive To Die For 3/3; The Outlawz Twisted Thursday AG 1/2; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 2/5

I am also linking up to Mynn's 5th Blogiversary Giveaway at On a Stampage - Congratulations, Mynn!


Giveaway ends July 31

Thank you for looking at my card!  I'll be back later today to announce my candy winners. Wishing you a joyful day!

So sweet...Love the silhouette image. Leaving you with an awesome inspiration from the Scripture in Hebrews 3:6 and it says, "But Christ is faithful as a son over God's house. And we are his house, if we hold on to our courage and the hope of which we boast." Have an awesome week.
