Walking the Cat(erpillar)

      How did it get to be August 1st already?!?  This year is flying by but I'm so ready for it to be fall with the heat of summer behind us.  Regardless, it's the start of a new month and a new challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  Our sponsor this month is the fantastic SheepSki Designs.  They supplied images for the DT to use and I chose this adorable "Walkies" image.  Andrea's shop can now be found on her SheepSki Designs blog.  You can also find SheepSki Designs on their Facebook page.

     Did you know that August 8 is "International Cat Day?"  It is, and 2 Crafty Critter Crazies is partnering with the Double Trouble challenge from today until August 19.  In honor of International Cat Day, they have a "Critters" theme and anything you enter into our 2 Crafty Critter Crazies challenge will qualify to be entered into their challenge during those dates.

     I know this isn't an actual "Cat" image, but I thought this Cat(erpillar) might do just as well.  :-D

     Colored with ProMarkers and cut with a die from Die-namics.  The outer wide, green, frame was also cut with that same die and I inset the image into that frame so that it  has a double row of 'stitching.'  The sentiment was printed and cut with an Avery Elle die, then framed with a scrap of that same green CS.  I added the sparkly baker's twine and tied it into a square knot.  Rather CAS but this way it works as either a feminine or masculine card.


     Be sure to come and play with us this month.  The challenge runs until the 25th of the month and winners/Top 3 are chosen and posted a day or two later.  We love seeing you play with us each month and love being inspired by what you create.
     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

What a cute image. I really like that bright green cardstock with it. You are longing for cooler weather, while we've only started to get some warm spring days. We still have to don our jackets occasionally. But we get plenty of rain so the farmer's crops are doing well and everything is green. I truly don't envy you the scorching heat you've had to endure.
