Fall Sketch at One Stop Crafts

Wahoo! It's Saturday which means there's a new challenge over at One Stop Crafts. Val is our hostess this week and she came up with an awesome sketch. The added challenge is use fall/autumn colors in your card. Robyn's Fetish is our sponsor this week. Come join in the fun and you could win FREE digi's from Robyn.

Fall is my favorite season and the colors always calm me. As a fur baby momma, six in the herd and this weekend we are fostering 3 tiny babies with no momma, I always like making cards with kitties on them. This card was fun as I got to play with my nesties and new Max and Whiskers stack from Basic Grey. I stepped out of my Copic coloring standard and broke out my neglected set of Stampin Up markers.

Color Inspiration ~ Fall Colors
ABC Challenge ~ D is for Distressing
I used ink distressing on the edges and layers of paper.
365 Cards Day 115 ~ Imagine This: Bedtime
I don't get to tuck in human babies very often, but my bed is always filled with fur babies.
365 Cards Day 191 ~ All Creatures Great and Small
My large animal is the big kitty on the window image, and I have several small kitties on the DP mat.
365 Cards Day 201 ~ A Happy Heart
The challenge is to take 2 things that make your heart happy and include them in a card. Two things that always make me happy are a cuddly cat and a nap!
