Cozy Kitties

I'd like to take a minute to thank all of you again for helping to celebrate the blogs birthday! 3 years...can you believe it, I sure can't, my how time has flown!!! This weekend I get to celebrate my birthday...hmmm, maybe at my age I should just stop them all together, lol! My hubby is excited because for the next 6 months he can tell everyone that he has "an older woman", he's so goofy! 

Let's get on with today's post shall we? I was playing with a little stamp set by Newton's Nook for the little local shop where I teach and came up with a cute little card. I liked it so much I had to make another one just like it to send to a little someone for their birthday.

Who doesn't like a pair of adorable little kitties...especially ones that don't shed, lol! I swear mine should be bald at this point but the hair just keeps coming!! I've used this little layout a million times and never get tired of it. I've even featured it in one of my videos. You can add a patterned paper panel, a contrast panel under your focal panel, ribbon VS twine...lots of ways to change it up a bit but the main thing is that it's easy and really fast to put together when you need a card in a hurry!

For this card I started off with an orange-ish yellow colored piece of cardstock to form an A2 sized base and using one of my newest obsessions, Hero Arts Shadow Inks, stamped my own patterned background using some of the "extras" in the stamp set. I then made my focal panel by stamping the kitties and coloring them with Copics, adding faux stitch lines, sentiment and twine. I popped this p with foam take on the card front. Easy peay and took 10 can't go wrong there can you?

Well that's it for me today, I'll see ya back here on Friday!!
