smitten by my kitten

Hello, my friends! A big Happy Friday to you! As promised, I’m back this morning with another card I created for The Outlawz Challenges. I have a couple more to share in a little while, so stay tuned! This sweet kitten card is for the April Progressive Freebie Challenge. Star Stampz is our sponsor this month and we were provided the most adorable Red String digital image to create with. A free digi each month is the perk for playing in this challenge each month! ;)


I used mainly red, orange and yellow for the image, which scream ‘happy’ to me. I cut the image with a square mini scallop die and popped it up on orange foam to match the orange dotted cardstock. I stamped the sentiment in black ink. After I finished the inside, I went back and added a few random black glitter punctuation marks to pull it all together.


For the inside, I added a strip of the orange dotted cardstock across the top and stamped the sentiments in black ink, adding black glitter brackets around the second part. This is SO the hubby and I, lol! We have nine feline fur babies and eight of them are rescues. We’ve been empty-nesters for years – our four human kids are grown with families of their own – and we couldn’t imagine life without these furry kids!


One more look… I’m so smitten with how this turned out! This image and challenge were the start of all the play this month! Sure glad I made studio time! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
