Cat & Canary

     I'm back with a card using another QKR Stampede digi stamp and I admit it's one of my favorites even if the canary does seem to be suspiciously missing.  Hmmmm, bad cat!  Check out the actual feather in the cat's mouth.  :-D


And here's the inside with a QKR sentiment.


I used the sketch from Try Stamping on Tuesdays,
modified slightly so I could wrap my ribbon instead of having a banner flag.


      The image is colored with ProMarkers, then die cut and a larger, die cut, mat is added.  The dp is from Colorbok and both ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I added the metal brads which have been in my stash for ages and ages.   Those come with round brads, also, and I tend to use those but the square ones get left in the stash, unused.

     Challenges:

     Well, now I have to do some work -- you know, that OTHER four-letter word!   This time it's things which have piled up on the desk, waiting for me to pay attention to them and they're beginning to make rumbling noises over being ignored.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Tihi, so fun! The feather in his mouth is a brilliant detail! Love the sentiment too, it's never the cat's fault is it...
