Retro Kitty Countdown 2

Hi, everyone!  Time is ticking for this month's challenges, so today I'm sharing a holiday card as part of my Retro Kitty Countdown series.  You might remember that I am making 25 of these countdown cards this year and plan to have them completed by December.  I have previously shared #4#8, #16, and #18, and for some reason I am not making them in numerical order.  I may not share all 25 but you'll definitely be seeing some of them.  I adore these old-fashioned storybook kitties!

Clipart:  The Digital Chick Etsy (basket of kittens), Prettie Printables Etsy (numbered square)
Other:  From my stash (patterned paper, glitter paper, tag die, bow die, snowflake punch, sentiment stamped on tag, self-made sentiment using Microsoft Word)

I would like to join the following 10 challenges:

Show Us Your Pussycats 65 Furrything Goes (cats only) UE

The Outlawz Monday Greetings Furry Friends 3/3

Word Art Wednesday 489-490 AG w Uplifting Sentiment 3/5 wk1

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

Rosy's Tea Party

Hello, everyone!  Long time, no see!  Thank you to my sweet friends who have reached out to check on me - if you haven't already heard from me, I will be replying to your emails in the next few days.  

Blogging and being online have not been a priority for me lately, but I do have some cards to share!  I actually made these weeks ago, and I'm finally getting around to sharing them.  I have 6 cards to share today!  Before I get started, I would like to welcome my newest follower - Jessica Cangiano - thank you for joining me!

First I'm joining the April progressive challenge at Imagine That Digistamp, and I must say that it is cuteness overload over there!  I received the adorable Digi-of-the-Month called Teacup Bunny for free since I participated in last month's challenge (thank you, Kris!).  Teacup Bunny is also part of a new set from Imagine That Digistamp called Rosy Tea Party.  I am so grateful to have received this set for free as well because I submitted the suggestion.   Thank you, Kris - I am thrilled with this set!  I love cup critters!

Rosy Tea Party

Here is my first card.  I've been obsessed with paper tearing lately and I just can't stop!  All 6 of my cards feature paper tearing.  This first card was actually the final card I made and I used up scraps left over from the other five cards.  I chose to use the precoloured Teacup Bunny image, fussy-cut, and popped up on foam tape.  Behind her is a die-cut doily (Your Next Stamp).  The pretty papers are all from Rosy Tea Party.  I created the sentiment in Microsoft Word.

Card 2 also features the precoloured Teacup Bunny, torn paper from Rosy Tea Party, and a self-made sentiment.

For Cards 3 and 4, I used the precoloured Teapot Kitty image and torn papers from Rosy Tea Party, as well as a self-made sentiment.

Below are Cards 5 and 6.  They feature the papers and my favourite critter in the Rosy Tea Party set, the Teacup Mouse.  All of these critters make me smile!  

I would like to join the following 9 challenges, for a total of 10:


Pixie's Snippet Playground 401 (Card #1 uses up the scraps left over from the other 5 cards) 1E C10
