Sweet Birthday Kitty

Hi and thanks for stopping by today! I just realized that before yesterday I hadn't posted in almost two weeks. What in the world is going on?! Thank gosh only good stuff. I've just gotten back from spending a week in Florida with my little, bigger brother (he's younger but bigger) and his beautiful family. We had such a great time enjoying the Florida heat, the pool and most of all some really great family time. I'm back in action now and have lots to share with you. I went on a card making rampage before I left but never had time to photograph and blog my cards. So, if I can just get to the blogging this week you should have a card almost everyday (if not everyday). On Thursday I'm taking part in the monthly One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop and there is always some killer talent in that lineup so be sure to check back on Thursday for the fun.

Ok, onto my card for today. This card is for my friend Barb. Her birthday was yesterday and she loves cats. Unfortunately, this didn't get in the mail on time but I did wish her a happy birthday!

I spattered the card base with Smoky Slate ink and added a doily and some sweet DSP to for a simple but pretty layout.

I stamped this image from Pretty Kitty Basic Gray Archival ink onto Shimmery White paper and watercolored it with lots of love (and lots of colors too!). I added a circle of Peekaboo Peach and a bow of silver metallic thread to just add a bit more detail.

Last of all I stamped my sentiment added my image piece using dimensionals. 

I'm also linking this card up to this week's Paper Craft Crew Challenge: PCCC202 I've completed one of the diagonals withe a punch, animal and pastels. Check out their awesome challenge by clicking HERE. 

That's all for today! Thanks for cruising by! Come back tomorrow for some Jar of Love fun!
See you soon!
