Cinderella Cat

     I am delighted to announce that I've been asked to be a Guest Designer for September on the Sunday CAS Challenge at The Outlawz!   All I can say is that someone has a much better opinion of my ability to create Clean and Simple card designs than I have myself.  I think I still need loads of practice but every once in a while, I get one right.  :-D  Let's hope I get a few of those this month.  Our challenge theme this week is done in honor of the lovely fall colors which will be taking over the northern hemisphere soon, so Use Your Favorite Colors.  But they can be from any season.  I chose to use fall colors because I'm so ready for cooler weather.

     This one uses a darling image from Squigglefly.  I know it's been around for a long time (last year? two years?) but this is my first time actually using it.  Those two kittens with the pumpkin just made me think of what would have happened to Cinderella's coach right after midnight.  Hence, the silly sentiment.

I used the colors from Mema's.

     This is a single layer card, colored with water colors, and I added faux stitching with an orange pen.  The only embellishment comes from the three tiny stars.  Not much more to say given how simple this is.

It's a darling CAS card. I have stamps I have had for years and not used too. I struggle with CAS but you know me and already know that...haha. Congratulations at the Outlawz team. I've been away again and have missed some of their fun challenges.

You may not have too much to say, but I say it screams great card. Yes the rest of us think you do a terrific job with CAS style. Love that stitching and your sentiment is ideal. Enjoy your Sunday.

This is really cute. I love your silly sentiment, and the doodling around the perimeter of the card is such a great touch! Super coloring too! I really like how you colored the orange cat's fur. Thanks for playing in Squigglefly's challenge!
