You’re a Cool Cat!

I am so happy – I got to spend some more time today in my craft room and I came up with 4 more cards!! I will be showing them to you over the next 3 or 4 days.  The last card I made today is the one that I am showing you first.

 I used a Newton’s Nook stamp set and based it off of a sketch from Newton’s Nook:


Here is my card – I colored it with my Prismacolor markers (I have no Copics) and used 2 punches from Stampin’Up! -the Banner punch, and the 1 1/4″ circle punch.  Used the Primary colors – always love that!! The cloud embossing folder is by Darice! This is what I came up with:


I am excited to enter this card in several challenges.  They are:

Week 111 - Under


Thanks so much for stopping by to see my card!! I am really getting into this whole challenge thing.

(I guess I just had to give myself permission)

And, now I give you permission to leave me a comment and I also suggest you check into Happy Mail by clicking here!!

Have a very Beautiful day!!

    Super fun pairing of sentiment and image, Taunya. Will you teach me how to color? It scares me. LOL! I need to show this to Alexa later. She’s crazy for cats! :) Have a happy Sunday!

    I just love the way the brighter colors pop off of the light blue. Is the background embossed in clouds? Oh, I must have that. Your coloring is fantastic. Thank you for joining DoubleClick Skittles ( DT – Faith

    Very cool, I really like the primary colors on this and the cloud embossing is perfect! I have the same folder, I wish they made another one so you can use it horizontal. Thanks for joining us over at the DoubleClick Skittles Challenge! DT Member Carri~Abusybee

    Hello *waving wildly with one hand while brushing SNOW off my face with the other! We’ve been hit with winter wonderland in our part of Alberta…craziness*, my dear friend. Look at you totally rocking the challenges, and with some absolute gems!! You sunbathing Newton (yeah…wishing for some sun and heat right now!) is darling, decked out in his snazzy shades and fancy beach towel and umbrella. Toooo sweet! I’m thrilled you’ve given yourself permission to play in challenges – aren’t they a blast! Making and sharing your beautiful creations is having a reciprocal response, as I’m seeing and reading comments praising and appreciating what you’re doing! Cheering and applauding loudly! Thanks so much for your note last week! I continue to be queen of disorganized and once I have that under control, I’ll respond with a proper note. Heyyy…just had a thought….check out Simply Create Too, where the current challenge is ‘show us something new’ alongside a DT call. I encourage you to apply!!! You are soooooo creative and so ready to take that step! No time to be nervous or second guess yourself…just do it! I’ll be the first to happy dance thunderously when you’re selected! Hugs~c

    Hey Taunya!! I thought I commented on this card but it looks like I missed it. I love your cool cat. He looks like he is having a great time chilling in the sun, which is what I wish I was doing. Your embossed background is great too. Nicely done! Thanks your for joining us over at the DoubleClick Skittles Challenge.
