A Part of the family

Part-of-the-family

Hello friends!
Happy Monday!  Hope your week is off to a great start!  Today I have a little sneak peek for you.  This is a set to be released by Our Daily Bread designs called Cat SympathyI have to tell you.... there is a need for these sets!  My next door neighbor just had to put her long loved dog down, and guess what I am making for her!  More on that later on in the week.... but here's my kitty card.  I love this sweet kitty image.  It could be just a cutesy card too... without the addition of the sympathy sentiments!  I colored mine like my granddaughters kitty.  The base is Bazzill, the dp is Alla Prima, and I used Spellbinders Classic Squares, Classic Scalloped Squares, and Tags five.  I added a crocheted flower and button, some MS punched butterflies, and some ribbon and twine.  The image itself is colored with Copics.  Well... that's it for tonight!  More soon!  Don't miss the release on April 1!

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Creative Mondays - Anything Goes, Get Hippity with IppityThings with Wings, Incy Wincy Designs - Tags, Lollipop Crafts - Anything goes, Make it Monday - always Anything Goes, Paper Creations Ink -Things with Wings, Simon Says Stamp and Show...a Tag, SquiggleflyAnything Goes, The Crazy Challenge - Add a Sentiment, The Pink Elephant - Butterflies, Totally Stampalicious -Critters, One Stitch At A Time -  Anything Goes, Opus GlueiAnimals, That Craft Place - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by!  

Jer. 17:7
Blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence.
