Kitty Lovin' Time!!

How is everyone doing this fine Friday?
We are hot and humid here in Kansas,
I am so ready for Autumn, I can't even see straight!!
I've got a card to share,
it features the adorable Belle and her kitty friend
from Belles N Whistles stamps, this one's called
Kitty Love, find it HERE at BNW stamps.
I love Elisabeths designs, the details are always charming,
and the characters and their fuzzy friends do just as
Belles n Whistles claims, tickle my heartstrings!!

I've used K & Co papers, coloured the image with distress inks, then cut it out and mounted it on a shadowed image, less the bowl and jug, they are painted on the main panel for the illusion of depth, everything has been distressed within an inch of resognition with brushed curdoroy, then scissor edged, then the royal Stickles treatment in Stardust. The doily punch is MS and the retro flower punch is EK Success, flowers and stamen are Prima. Handmade tag stamped on Kraft with a TGF sentiment out of my new Sweet Tooth set by Marina Neira.

I want to add this in at a few of my favorite haunts, as well as a challenge I am new to, and I think late for, great Steph, way to make a lasting impression, lol, The Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge
I have seen these brilliant sketches week after week
from my Aussie babes and thought, hey, why not??
Time to branch out, lol!!
At Crafty Creations
they want to see something cute or sweet
and I think this image is both!!
At Cupcake Craft Challenge
they are hosting a Cats and Dogs challenge,
At Fussy and Fancy
they are hosting a stitches, scallops and sparkle challenge
and of course, Belles n Whistles
is having a distressing challenge, HAD to use that as
the perfect reason for a play this week!!

Thanks for stopping by,
I hope you have a great weekend!!
