Stealing Hearts

     How could these sweet kittens NOT steal your heart?   The image is from Sasayaki Glitter and is the image this month from the Progressive Challenge over on Facebook.   I think it's called "Valentine Cats."

I started with the sketch from The Outlawz.

     I used my ProMarkers to color the image, added two, little, die cut, red hearts to their collars, then cut it with a die from Spellbinders.  The die also pierces holes and embosses the paper.  I added more embossing with a "Hearts" folder from Darice and I used that for the mat behind the image.

     I dug through my stash of 12 x 12 scrapbooking papers, cut four squares (that paper is red, not burnt orange!) and added them to deep red CS, then layered the image piece on top of that.  I decided on two of my hand sewn bows (the ones with pearls) for embellishment and called it finished.

     I'm doing more Valentine's this year than usual because I've had some requests from friends who want to share cards with their grandkids or friends.  I hope your week is going well and wish you lots of Happy Stamping.    NanaConnie

  6. Yes, Connie, these are adorable little kittens and I love that bow in the little one's hair. Paper is pretty and the embossing and die cut pieces all came together beautifully. It is nice that more friends are requesting cards for the grandchildren and friends. Good thing they have you to make their cards because they are so much nicer than giving a store bought one. Have a great day.
