Beach Kitty in Purples

     If you follow my blog or even just visit regularly, you know how much I love purple and that it's my favorite color.  I incorporated some of my brighter purples into this card using a new digi I got from AuroraWings this weekend and I'm going to enter it over at their FB challenge.



     This darling beach kitty just looked so serene (kind of like the way I imagine my friend, Cely, who's a Carolina Girl and who loves the beach, would be sitting there.  This one is just for you, Cely!) that the sentiment needed to be something about not being stressed out.  Hence, the play on Meow and Out.  :-D

     The image is colored with my ProMarkers, then cut with a large rectangle die and mounted onto a pale purple card base.  The only embellishment that seemed necessary was the bow in the upper corner.

     I'm off to run some errands and will return late in the day.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Now this says it all. I am so ready to relax on the beach again. When will that be, the Sand fire was a mile from home and the air is awful. Still burning and the stores are open again. Love this feline. Just think of me in that chair one day, sipping on a lemonade with an umbrella.
