Bad Kitty at Friday Sketchers 70

Happy Friday to Everyone and I certainly hope you all have had a magnificent week!! AND it's have a fun and safe one!!!

Today is Week 70 at Friday Sketchers and MY week to host so I am looking forward to each of you coming on over to check out the lovely cards my fellow DT members have made using my sketch. I would also love to invite you to join with us this week and create a card using this same sketch, submit it to us, and be sure to link Friday Sketchers in your post. My sincere thanks to DIGITAL STAMP OASIS for sponsoring this week at Friday Sketchers.

The card base is Bazzill and all matting is PTI Dark Chocolate and Kraft. All DP is digital. I used little Tilda with Cat from the Pet and Animal Collection 2009, stamped twice for dimension, colored with Copics, and cut out. The expression on this little kitty's face looks a bit forlorn to me so obviously I wanted to make sure that he had done something wrong -- unrolling the ball of added a MEOW charm/slide and a paw print charm to match the DP. Finally I added flowers from the June Chocolate and Vanilla bloom kit from Crafty Feeling, and bronze pearls to the corners. I also used the new MS 3 dots and scallop border punch.

For the inside I used some coordinating papers, added some satin ribbon and another kitty charm. I just couldn't let the card end on a bad kitty note so I used a very happy Hanging Cat, a tiny bow, and what was leftover after a nice dinner...lolol...a tiny silver fish skeleton charm!!!! Doesn't that look like a very happy kitty???

This card will be on its way to little 3 year old Maya in Ontario...SweetiePie, I hope you like your kitty card and your surprises!!! Big huggie for you!!!

Thank you so much for visiting me and I love reading your comments!! I try to respond to all of them but so many times I cannot track down your email address. So if you haven't heard from me, please know that I appreciate each and every one of you...Have a fun Friday and an even more splendid weekend...I hope to see you back here real soon!! Maggie hugs to all!!!!

Looks like a "bad kitty day" to me, Jacque. I'll bet you were chuckling to yourself when you were coming up with this idea! Cute card and such fine detailing, as we all know is your trait by now. Maya's a lucky gal to get this cutie-patootie.
