Cool, Cool Kitty

I created this card for this week's Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge. For the layout I used the Friday Sketchers challenge sketch.

The challenge for Stampin' for the Weekend is to use a digital image. I haven't used many digi images, but I have seen some really cute ones. This Hambo Cool Cat image was a freebie that I found through Mel Stampz blog. This blog is an awesome resource for all kinds of cool stamping stuff. One of the cool things on there is an index for free digital images. You can find this image here. I colored it with Prismas blended with odorless mineral spirits

The sketch for Friday Sketchers is shown above . It's a nice, simple sketch which is my favorite kind because it leaves lots of room for embellishing. I scalloped the edge of the vertical piece. The flowers are made with some of my favorite punches and layered. The hot, hot, hot charm and flip-flops were goodies I found in my stash.

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Oh, wow, this cat is enjoying the summer like nobody else! I'm so jealous! :) You coloured it beautifully and the papers are perfect for a bright summery card! I love those cool flip-flops, and the charm. The flowers and the ribbon are gorgeous.

Thank you for joining us at SFTW and good luck! :)

Wow such a summery feeling on your gorgeous card Judy. That is one cool cat enjoying his sunbathing and glass of sangria and you have coloured him to perfection. Super papers and punched detail - love those flip flops and flowers too.
