The Cat's Meow

Good morning! Hope you are all having a fabulous week! Today is Sweet 'n Sassy Digi day here on my blog, and I'm showing you a card I made with one of the great images released last week called Sleepy Kitty, illustrated by the talented Leah Cornelius. What a cute image! I have three cats ...most of the time they can be found right smack in the middle of whatever I'm trying to get done! Gotta love them though! I always think they are so cute when trying to curl up in a box or basket, just like in this digi image.

The image was printed off on Neehah cardstock and coloured with Copic markers. I used lots of layers on this card, topped off with a bit of machine stitching. The sentiment is actually just part of the DP. Hmmm...does "meow" count as a sentiment?? lol. Since Sleepy Kitty is snoozing in a basket of knitting, I thought it appropriate to use balls of yarn as embellishments. I pulled out my stash of embroidery floss, chose coordinating colours and wrapped it around little cardstock circles.


As I am typing this post, I'm looking at all three of my kitties snoozing away on the couch. Must be nice!! I've always got a "to-do" list a mile long, so no cat naps for this stamper!

If you haven't been over to Sweet 'n Sassy, you MUST!!! There is a fantastic sale going on right now. Trust me, you will not want to miss out! This image is on sale for 25% off...that's only $2.25 (USD). Remember, with digi images you can shop without even leaving your house...and be printing off images in no time! Take some time to look around the store. Korin has a great selection of Digital Stamps, as well as clear sets too! (some discontinued sets are on at a whopping 70% off!! But, only while supplies last.)

Blessings ladies (and maybe gents?? sorry, didn't mean to be exclusive. lol)!!
