Pussy Cat Pussy Cat...

Welcome

This card was made for a cat lover. 


I started with the s/b die d'lite tree, cut out of light green and shaded with prismcolor pencils.


The sun was cut freehand from gold paper


And the cats die cut using Memory Box dies, then coloured. I sat them on a sponged lawn, and drew in some birds for the cats to watch.


The sentiment was stamped repeatedly, starting from the centre and working out to the sides.


Gold dotted Washi tape finished the inside of the card.

Love how you've used this tree die. Clever way to create your kitty scene too, and they look cute with the different colors you've made. Like that sun ray in the corner too! TFS & Hugs, Blessings & prayers.

I love this Maxine! What a sweet little scene you have built! Your tree is magnificent and I love the glimmering shimmering golden sun in the sky. My favourite are those adorable little kitty cats, I love that you coloured them all differently, just brilliant! hugs :)

Monica said...

Maxine, I really like the story that your card tells with a beautiful tree and cats and a bright shining sun. How clever to handcut your sun. The lawn and the coloured in cats look so real. Very pretty card.

Thank you for always visiting me and leaving such encouraging and motivating comments for me.

Lots of love, strength and blessings,

Monica

Your friend will be so touched when receiving this fun scene- specially made for her! Love the shimmery sun and the fun way you added the sentiment. Cute striped coloring on the cars, and love the look of the tree. Beautiful work- again!

Neet said...

What a truly fabulous card. I love the sun you cut out freehand - clever! I am a cat lover, love dogs too, so this really appealed to me - and the tree is "D-liteful"
Blessings to you both

A card that makes you smile! Love the good sunny weather you show us here! And the cats look elegant in this scene!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Oh my gosh! Look at all those great kitties basking in the sun. What a great card (and I'm not just saying that as a cat lover--I find faffing about with dies to not always be easy).

Marilyn said...

Another great card. I do admire your creativity... after one card I am sometimes at a loss for what to do next but you never seem to have that problem. I like how your work is always so inventive and how you continually try new techniques. I tend to get stuck in a rut... it's a comfortable rut though!
