Kit kitties

Good Afternoon All!

I've been busy creating cards using MELJEN'S Designs Mother Cat image! I just love this Mummy cat & her kittens & it colours beautifully.  I've coloured four different colour ways with this digi - I bet you can't guess who is the cat lover, huh? LOL I have three of my own - an oldster one at 16, & two youngish ones (Brother & Sister) aged 3 & 2. The younger ones are my crafting buddies - well, the 3 year old one is, Charlie is his name, and he is my inspiration for my blog name! He is always by my side wherever I am.  His little Sister, Lola. is the Princess of shredding! I have a waste paper/recycling bin close by to my desk & when she feels the need, she jumps in & all I can here is the sound of ripping paper! LOL  My old cat just sleeps whilst it's all going on...

Anyway, getting back to my card, I played about with the above card, making it more masculine but using same image, design & papers but leaving out the flowers & flourishes.

The bottom version is going to be for my Son's birthday - he's a cat lover like me!

Ingredients used:
Mother cat image by Meljen's designs
Backing papers, sentiment & bow embellishment from
Kanban Craft's Feline Friends A4 paper pad.
Kraft card from stash
Martha Steward border punch
Prima flowers
Gems from stash
