Fabulous Friday

Good Morning everyone!  I hope you had a great week and are ready for a long weekend.  I have a real quick post for you all today.  If you've seen this card before it's because I posted it yesterday on Crafting with Deedee's Digis.

This week's Happy Monday challenge is all about pets.  You still have a couple of days to get in on this challenge if you'd like.  I used the help of Mojo Monday's sketch, so as you can see, it's easy to combine a couple of other challenges with Happy Monday.

I used Purr-fect Halloween which is a great set.  The kitty is actually sitting next to the pumpkin, but I cut that part out.  There are also 4 wonderful sentiments in this set.  I had so much fun coloring this little guy.  Coloring with dark colors takes a little practice and a huge leap of faith... at least it's that way for me.  I think he came out really cute.

Here's a close up of the kitty.  I used a white gel pen to add wisps of white fur and to highlight his whiskers.  The little paw prints along the bottom was created with a pencil eraser and a small dot stamp.  Super easy.

Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Lemon yellow (PTI), Certainly Celery, Pumpkin Pie (SU)
Paper:  Paws and Claws Kitty Argyle (The Paper Company)
Stamps/Ink:  Polka Dot Basics (PTI), Rich Cocoa (Memento)

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I wish you a great, long and safe holiday weekend.
