Tea Cup Kitten and The Hop to Stop

Hello, everyone! Before I share my card, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Suchi - thank you for joining me!

Today I'm sharing another purple card for The Hop to Stop (see more details below).  I used an adorable image from By Miss Rach.  I mentioned to Miss Rach during the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop that I am always on the lookout for kitties with hot beverages, and she quickly designed not one but three adorable kitties, one with coffee, one with cocoa, and this precious kitten with tea.


According to Miss Rach, all of these images will eventually be available as freebies, so you'll have to join her blog and stay tuned!  She offers a new freebie every week (here's the most recent one) and holds weekly challenges as well, so you will want to head over so you don't miss out!

I coloured this precious one with Prismacolor pencils and fussy-cut so I could pop her up with foam tape.  She is layered on some glittery banners (DCWV glitter paper, die-cut with Taylored Expressions Banner Stacklets 1) and a polka-dot vellum circle.  I created the card base by adding strips of purple washi tape and one thin strip of gold washi tape.  The sentiment is from Your Next Stamp, and I heat-embossed it in white on a black scrap and then hand-cut into a banner shape.

As mentioned above, I am supporting The Hop to Stop.  It's a blog hop designed to raise awareness about domestic violence. One in three women will experience domestic violence over the course of their lifetimes. Just think about it... that's 33% of all the women you meet.  Purple is the domestic violence awareness colour.  I explained my connection to this issue in a previous blog post.


For more information on domestic violence,you can visit the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence. Canadians can find out more here.  I hope to see you at The Hop to Stop to support this important issue.

I would also like to join the following challenges: Beccy's Place October AG UE; Craft Your Passion Always AG 3/3; Crafting from the Heart AG 2/3; Creative Inspirations Stars and/or Stripes UE; DL.ART October Linky UE 1/day; Great Impressions For the Kids 3/3;  Inspiration Destination AG UE; Just Keep on Creating AG UE; Make My Monday Cats UE; Not Just Cards AG UE; One Stitch at a a Time AG with Awareness (Domestic Violence Awareness) UE; Papertake Weekly AG 2/5; Penny's Paper Crafty AG 1/3; Pile it On 1-2-3 Recipe (1 image, 2 types of washi tape, 3 banners) UE; Scrapbook Blessings Club AG Use Digi Stamps Only UE; Sweet Stamps October AG UE; The Daily Marker - Kathy Racoosin's 30-Day Colouring Challenge Day 6; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 1/5

This is a great card for a great cause!! Plus your cat image is just purrr-fect (I just couldn't resist). The bold purple stripes are so... well.... bold and so pretty and straight (not an easy thing to do). I also like the way you dulled down the stripes with your vellum circle to make room for your adorable cat... Thank you so much for joining us at MMM. Your work is absolutely fantastic..
