Get Well Cat

     As soon as I saw this digi from QKR Stampede, I thought about a saying my dad always used.  "You're as spooky as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs!"  I think this is perfect for a Get Well card, don't you?


I used the sketch from Sunday Sketch & Stamp.


     I colored the image with my favorite ProMarkers.  It's die cut  and matted with inked edges to make it look a bit distressed.  The paper is from Colorbok and both ribbons came from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I did the faux stitching with a white gel pen.

     Challenges:

Suzy Bee's Bloomin'

     I hope you got a smile from this one.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
