Happy Fall Cat

     I was so lucky in a game over on the Facebook page of Sheepski Designs and I won this darling image!  I won in the very next game, also, and another digi was my prize.  You'll see that one in a day or two.


I started this card with the sketch at Mojo Monday,
where they want to see tall and skinny cards.
Mine is 7 1/4" x 4 1/2" and I had 
to make the envelope myself.


     While it doesn't show really well in the photo, this is a lapped, gatefold card.  The left flap is wider than the one on the right (but narrower than the overall width of the card) and the right flap tucks inside, under the left flap.  What you see as a colored strip on the right side is actually the outside edge of the right flap.

     I colored that darling cat with my ProMarkers, then cut him with one of my stitched rectangle dies from Die-namics.  I cut another piece with the next size larger die from that same set and used it to mat the image.  All the papers came from different stacks by DCWV and most of those are matted with kraft brown CS.

     Middle of the week so it's down hill to the weekend.  I'm celebrating because we haven't had a 100 degree day in a week and none are predicted for at least another week.  I'm not going to say they are totally gone but September started tomorrow and then it's only another three weeks until autumn begins.  Can we at least hope?  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

  1. Hello Connie, I do love this pretty pussy cat. I have made a card featuring a cat too today, great minds think alike ;) Gorgeous papers too. I can't believe that tomorrow will be September and then we will be into Fall. The year is sure going far to quick.
