Cat Nap in the Flowers

    Woohoo!  I have my camera back!  Now I'm going to play catch up so I'll have only this post tonight and two late DT posts tomorrow.  I only had enough daylight to take this one photo (making sure everything was working again) but the rest will get photographed in the morning.  :-D

     For this darling card, I used an image from AuroraWings which I dearly love and use every few months whenever I can find a reason to do so.  :-D

     The image is printed on the card front along with the sentiment, then colored with ProMarkers and watercolors.  I added glitter to some of the flower centers and to the butterfly.   The twine was the only embellishment because I wanted this card to be CAS.  It's for a young boy in my neighborhood who just happens to think that my white cat is the cutest thing he's ever seen.  Whenever he's visiting his grandparents, he loves to come by and watch for Honey to sit in her window.  They stare at each other as though each is trying to decipher what the other is thinking as they watch each other for minutes at a time.  I wanted him to have a white kitten of his very own and this is the best I could do. :-D
