Well I'll Be . . . It's A KitCat Card!

Long time, no blog! I'll spare you my mundane explanation of why I haven't been in blogville for so long, but it's really quite a lot of nothing exciting. What is exciting to me is finally posting the latest KitCat card, hosted by none other than Kitten Catherine!

She sent us all some uber-cute images from The Greeting Farm Roll Call set (I used Maria) along with some whimsical patterned paper from My Mind's Eye, an assortment of ribbons, and a vintage-style rhinestone button ... that I'm saving for later. Hope you don't mind, Cat!

As much as I try, sometimes I can't get away from pink, so I just went with it and created yet another girly-girl card that features a scallop-punched edge and a big flower I made by stacking altered and glittered chipboard flowers. I found the cute birdie brad in my stash (thanks Kels!) and think it's a great complement to the birds in the patterned paper.

Be sure to stop by to visit the other KC Kittens to see their creations: Kelly , Jeanette , Lorie , Michelle , and Catherine. The Kittens will be on hiatus enjoying the rest of the summer, but watch for their return this fall!

And I'm in the process of updating the look of my blog, just because I'm tired of it, so please be patient. Who know's what you'll see before I end up with something I like. And hopefully, I won't destroy the whole thing in the process. LOL!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

Oh. my. goodness. I stopped by to see your card again (since mine is about to finally get some blog attention!) and I can't find my comment!! :( OH Sus! I know I commented on your card way back when, it must not have saved and I'm a terrible friend for not making sure it did! eeeeeeeeeek! Humbling asking for your forgiveness, you must have thought I was so rude! LOL!

Your card - gahhhh! I wish I remember what I had said when I first saw it and picked my mouth off the ground! This is SO absolutely CUTE!! I love how you colored her so sweetly and she's nestled into the PURR-fect layout and with JUST the right embellies in just the right place! One of your cutest yet, I think!

Blessings to you, sweet Susan!
