Quick Get Well Sketch Card

Hey, Everyone!
I'm back with another card to post. this is a quick card using a sketch for a challenge that is ending in just a few hours. hence, not only my 2nd post of the day, but also the fairly fast card.

I have been wanting to use this adorable image that I received for free from Judy over at Bluejeans, Coffee, and Friends. she is so kind to offer a free image each month if you just pop her an email to request it.

I knew I wanted to play with this cutey because it reminded me so much of myself when I was a little girl. my kitty cat and I were inseparable! she even went on trips with me, and I had a special basket on my bike so she could ride along. yep, we were THAT close!

You might remember that I have a friend who is going through some icky health stuff. I wanted to send another card to her, but I did want this one to fit in a regular mailing envelope. the majority of my cards are either hand delivered or go in padded mailers because of all the extra 'stuff' I add. I kept this one simple and flat so it could easily go through the mail. (crossing fingers anyhow!)

papers are from the Basic Grey Soleil collection and the dies are by Lawn Fawn. a little bit of SU! linen thread and dots with my white gel pen finish the card. because my friend LOVES purple, I created a 'ribbon' for the kitty to play with! :)

I do apologize for the icky poo photo. I was in a hurry and took it with my phone.
