It's challenge time again over at
Crafting From The Heart
#107 Anything Goes.
The sponsor for this week

I already had this digi so 
decided to use him as my
image for this challenge.


I just love his expression!
Coloured with my promarkers and a silver gel pen.
I deliberately kept my colouring to the minimum
and fussy cut him out and then adhered him to 
black card stock .

The paw pad stamp is one I bought years and years 
 ago before  stamping became a craft!!!! 
(I used to breed and show Persians in a previous life
and I had  purchased this stamp from a cat show
 and used it as  my signature on  pedigree forms.)
I used Black and  London fog ink pads and 
simply stamped the paws in a random fashion over 
a sheet of white card stock. 
Die cut a panel using  a scalloped die  by Crafts -Too.
Adhered onto a panel of black card stock which 
I then attached to a scalloped  card base.
The cat image is attached over front using 3d pads
to give a raised effect. 
The sentiment was created in word 
and adhered to a small scallop die cut 
and again I used 3d pads to attach to the front of the card.

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

Hi there Valery - I've got a DT hat on today but as someone who is obsessed with cats I just luuuurve this one. Such a great image and I love the paw prints - just wish I could teach my little 'darlings' to wipe their paws when they come in - little monsters. Great card methinks!! Thank you so much for entering the Crafty Calendar (Anything Goes) Challenge this month, lots of luck to you. Hugs Sue Pxxx DT

Hi Mrs A,
this is a super and lovely card.
I do like that cat image he looks as if he has done something wrong, but is saying it wasn't me honest.
Forgot to email to say I received my Butterfly winnings, and thank you very much.
lots to play with there.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
