Kitten from Santa

     I was asked to make a card for a young girl who is getting a kitten from Santa this year.  It'll be her first pet now that she's old enough to care for an animal.  I looked through my images and found this one from QKR Stampede (Digi 7502 - "Sitting Pretty" + sentiment, Digi 14505 - "Hug") and since the new challenge starts today, it seemed a perfect card to use.  The theme at QKR is "Bling It On!"


     I colored the kitten with ProMarkers, then die cut the image with a die from a Spellbinders'  set.  Die cutting images is one of my favorite techniques, which you undoubtedly know if you've visited my blog very often.  :-D  I matted that with dark red CS.  I added three, tiny, red gems in each of two corners,one larger one to the bow around the kitten's neck, and then added the pearl snowflakes to the bottom corner of the die cut and to the side of the card.  The red ribbon bow is one of those I sew together by the dozens with a pearl added.  I hope all those pearls still count as bling even though they don't sparkle like diamonds or gemstones.  :-D

     Challenges:

     Don't forget to come and play with us this week.  You can use any company's images to enter but if you use a QKR Stampede image, you'll be in a special separate drawing and that increases your chances of winning more than you can imagine!  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Look at him with his Christmas bow on. He is a delight and the little girl will be thrilled with this card just as much as the kitten itself. Have a fun day.

You did an amazing job. Honestly, I just love all QKR images, but this little kitty looks like he/she got into the eggnog. I hope the little girl loves her kitty.
