Cat Nap

Time for another challenge over at 
Crafting From The Heart
The sponsor for this week

I chose to work with this  image called
'Nap Time'

The Doc's Aunt has a Ginger Tom
who seems to spend more of his time in her house
than in his own !
Aunty Eileen always insists that she doesn't
actually feed  him just a few nibbles put down in case he
gets pekish!!

So when I saw this image I just  knew exactly how to colour
it in and who the card would be going to.

Back with the acetate card front which I have 
perfected a way of enclosing without showing any
tape marks. 

Image has been coloured using my Copic pens
(they are growing on me) and a gold gel pen
to create the tabby markings. 

I created a pocket fold on the inside of the back
of the card to hold the thankyou  note.
Orange /yellow and green cardstock to make the 
card base from my stash along with the 
gold sticker embellishments.

The theme is Anything Goes as usual
and we would love to see you enter 
your projects .

Haa Haa!! I love it!!! It seems that cats often adopt other homes as well as their own!! But then cats have staff don't they!!
