Cat Lover Thank You

     I've done another die cuts card but this one is a special Thank You for a cat lover friend of mine.   Her young daughter has 2 Siamese cats so I did my best to color them appropriately.  I know both of them are going to love this card.

     I used scraps of CS to do the die cuts.  The cat family die is from Cheery Lynn and the Thank You oval was cut with an Unbranded die.  I used ProMarkers to color the gray on the cats and the bit of purple on the ball of yarn.

     I dug in my stash to find one of my hand-sewn bows; it was white but I 'dyed' it with a violet ProMarker.  Once I learned that technique of dying with a marker, I only use white ribbon for my bows.  That way, I get bows which are exactly the color I want.

     I added a small gem to the center before adhering it to the card.

Darling card, Connie, and your friend will love it. Siamese cats are so intriguing to see, but boy oh boy, am I ever allergic to them! It's strange, but I'm allergic to most kitties. The only ones who don't trigger symptoms are black cats or cats that are mostly black. I was told it is because they have a different dander. Seems strange? Back to your card (I'm so easily distracted), that die set is amazing with the details around the edges for the gray coloring! hugs, de

Awesome coloring of these die cuts, Connie! They certainly look like Siamese kitties!

Such a lovely and very personal card Connie - I love it! It's a shame that cats make me wheeze like an old accordion - but they're cute a lot of the time from afar!
