Cat Lovers Hop

     Well, there's no question that I qualify as a cat lover if not quite yet a 'crazy cat lady' so I'm playing along in the 2017 Cat Lovers Hop.

     Here's my project featuring a cat.

     This is an image from Aurora Wings, colored with my ProMarkers, and cut with a simple, rectangle die from Spellbinders.  I adhered it to a colored card front, then wrapped it with gold ribbon and added on of the tiny bows I make by the dozens and toss in my stash for future use.  Again, a usual, this bow started out white but I 'dyed" it with a ProMarker to get that golden orange color I wanted.  I kept it pretty CAS so that it would mail easily.

     I'm still struggling with my cold but must get some rest and toddle off to my duties later this morning.  I'll take some OTC meds and hope that keeps me from feeling too miserable.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

This image is so beautifully colored and I am impressed with your custom colored tiny bow! I have so much ribbon but always forget to use it so your method of making up bows ahead of time is probably something I should do.

Donna said...

It's just as adorable seeing it again! Wonderful coloring!

Lisa Lynn said...
