Sneaky Birthday

Sneaky Wishes

Hello there :)  I seriously don’t know where the time is going, it’s looking like spring outside, and March is almost gone!! We also have a new challenge at C.R.A.F.T. for you this week, and the theme is Add a Charm.  I find that I often forget about my stash of charms, so this is a great time to dig some up :)  We have the wonderful Sami Stamps

sponsoring us for the last time.  We wish you all the best, as you devote your time to family and your personal life :)

Sneaky Birthday

I used the adorable image Sneaky Whiskers, from our sponsor.  This stamp is so versatile, that I was hard pressed to decide on which idea to use for my project!!  I colored the kitties up and then fussy cut them out to use  later.  I cut the sentiment with my Cricut, using my oldest cartridge, Don Juan.  I found some funky coordinating papers in stripes and dots, and arranged them, using some plain card stock in colors from the print.  I then carefully positioned the cats so they were peeking out from some letters, and taking center stage at the bottom of the sentiment.  I found a mouse charm, which was perfect to hang from one of the impish kitties mouths. It needed a bit “more”, so I added some stitching around the block letters and some silver studs.

I’d like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Kitty Love

BFFGood morning!! Hope everything is going well for you, as we go into a new week!  Today I have a card for you this was made for a challenge on the Kit and Clowder Facebook group, using this sweet image from Some Odd Girl.  I colored Crazy Love Tia with my SN markers – which have been feeling a bit neglected since I got my Prismacolors!  I paper-pieced her jacket and jeans with some scraps that I had on hand, and shaded these pieces with my markers.  I also added some “tears” in the jeans with some white gel pen (that wasn’t working too well).  I found the adorable paper with the paws in hearts, and knew it would be perfect for this card!!  It coordinated with the denim print paper that I also used.  I found the circular “friend” sentiment – one that I’ve had for years, and have never used before!! The paw border was from the same paper collection as the heart background paper, and the punched border incorporated more hearts :) I added a sprinkling of brads in one of the corners for some balance, and called this card done :)

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Hello there!! I’m here today with my post for the latest ATG challenge at Creative Fingers.  The new year brings with it some new sponsors for our challenges, along with old favorites :)  For this fortnights challenge we have 2 sponsors:

Angel CatI was given Angel Kitty to work with, and I was so excited, as this is the first time I’ve used a Wink Wink Ink image :) I was hoping that my new Prismacolor Pencils would arrive by the time I did this card, but they didn’t, so I colored it up with my SN markers, and added definition with my existing colored pencils.  Pet sympathy cards are so hard to make, as I am an animal lover, and know how hard it is to lose a fur baby.  But, I also appreciate it when others share in my grief, so I make sure I have a few sympathy cards on hand.  I incorporated rainbows with the background paper, and cut some clouds, freehand, for the kitty to rest on.  A sentiment that was cut with my Cricut, and a few gems finish this card off.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

SUYP Cat Lovers Challenge – #14 Furrything Goes

Kitty Cup

A Cup of Kitty :)

Hi there!  It’s a beautiful fall day here.  It’s amazing how fast summer passed us by :(  That being said, I’m certain that before we know it, winter will be upon us, and with that, Christmas.  So, it’s the perfect time to start on your Christmas cards, if you haven’t done so already!  And…..that is exactly what our challenge theme is this week at C.R.A.F.T.!  We have 2 fabulous sponsors this time around:

   and  The Stamping Boutique

Stop by and get in the Christmas spirit with the wonderful DT cards!

Kitty CupI was given “Cup of Love” by Pickled Potpourri to work with.  It’s not in their Christmas section, but it is such a versatile stamp!!  Depending on your choice of color scheme, it can be used at any time of the year :)  After merging the kitty into the cup, I colored it up with my SN markers.  I added gold and some sparkly highlights on the mug pattern.  I stamped a pretty sentiment in the corner of the image piece.  All the paper I used was from my scrap folder…it’s time to be using some of that up :)  I added a strip of a brown paper bag, and a bow at the bottom, and some little blingy things that I made from polymer clay around the image.  A few more swipes with the glitter pen on the sentiment and the bow, and everything was coordinated quite nicely :)
