Kitty for a Birthday Girl

This past week there has been a wonderful event going on over at The Crafter's Cafe - the Holiday Open House. we've played games, had papercraft challenges, and received a few free digi images. oh yes, let's not forget the fun chats and meeting of new friends! that far surpasses everything else! :)

(sketch has been flipped on its side to show you my interpretation)

I so rarely get the chance to do much 'just because' crafting since I am usually working on DT projects or things I have planned for family & friends. So this was a great chance for me to actually make a card 'just because'! It's actually going into my stash for later and someone MIGHT actually receive a birthday card from us either AT ALL or on time this year! gotta love it! tee hee!

This adorable Katie Kitty image was given as a freebie from Robyn's Fetish if you joined their birthday challenge. I also played around with a sketch I found over at Willow's Sketchie challenge. Since she looks to me a bit like a prairie cat, I thought the wonderful papers from Basic Grey's Picadilly line were perfect here. I kept the look feminie, but fun since this will be going to a young girl. I added little flower clusters to her bonnet with my white gel pen. metal word charms are Making Memories and buttons are Fancy Pants.

Robyn's Fetish - anything goes
Paper Sundaes - something old (charms) & something new (buttons & lace were Christmas gifts)
Glitter Geeks - brand spanking new (digi, buttons, & lace)
Creative Inspirations - something new (digi, buttons, & lace)
Squirrel and the Fox - something new (buttons & lace were Christmas gifts)
Fussy and Fancy - animal print or birthday
Clearly I Stamp - birthday
Joanna Sheen - celebrations
Basic Grey - anything goes
