MMSC75-Cat and Hats!

Good Morning All!
My trip to Texas for the family reunion was long and tiring but well worth it! I saw cousins I had never met before and cousins I haven't seen in a bazillion years. While we were there for the reunion on my Dad's side of the family my Mom's sister had passed the word along and we had a reunion on Mom's side of the family as well! We ran from the time we hit Texas until we finally arrived back here late yesterday afternoon. I am beat!

But.....I have an adorable card to share. I had the images almost finished before leaving town so it was really a matter of putting everything together when I found a few minutes for crafting! This cat and both hats are from Priscillastyles and can be found at her store. Take a close look at this kitty's face, isn't she adorable? I gave her a glittery collar and her hat is very sparkly as well! Let me show you the sketch first and then the card.
This is the sketch for this week, a great sketch to work with and this kitty and her hats we purr-fect for this design!!


I just couldn't resist adding that hat at a snappy angle, it really makes her look so sophisticated!! The hats were paper pieced via the computer and the cat was colored traditionally with water colors. I added some stickles and glitter pen touches to spice it up. In real life this card is really fun!!  Now let's take a closeup look at the kitty and the hats!

Thank you so much for stopping in to see my contribution to this sketch! Look on the right sidebar and you will find my team mates listed, treat yourself to some real eye candy and inspiration!! Drop into Priscilla's store and view the amazing collection of images she has available at extremely reasonable prices!! I look forward to hearing from you and reading your comments! Hope you have an outstanding week!

Blessings,
donna
