Cat in window

Hi, I am back, my brother ans sister in law left just a little while ago, I thought I would have some down time while they were here to post but that just didn't happen.  It was a great visit and we did a lot of walking, let's just say I didn't have any trouble getting my steps in each day :)

Today I have a card to share for my niece who has a cat. I watercolored the background with distress inks and added the cut from my Silhouette Cameo machine, and added a few sequins :)


Now I am off to catch up on all your blogs :)
Hope you have a fun and creative weekend!!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

Connie

Oh how delightfully whimsical, Connie. The sweet cat is wonderful stretching out on that glorious window sill. Hope oh hope those pretty birds sitting on the charming branches are safe. How lovely you had a wonderful visit with your family. Walking is such a fun activity, isn't it. Have a lovely day, lovely lady.

Lovely card again Connie, clever use of the watercolour for background and cameos certainly do cater for unique cutouts dont they?? too dear over here so i use dies more limiting.
Thanks so much for sharing your inspiration!

Oh so cute! I love your background, very pretty! And that window and cat die is awesome. You can just feeeeeeel the stretch in that cat, right?!?!

Beth Norman said...

Wow, your background is a great backdrop for your die. Lovely work Connie. Have a good weekend.

Connie, your watercolor background is beautiful and, oh my gosh, I love that die! It sounds like you had a great visit and must have had decent weather if you did all that walking. I love to walk, but our rain hardly stops. Today is a possibility, though. Last night we walked the dogs in the pouring rain. There was so much rain water flowing along the street edges we thought the dogs could go swimming. Sheesh!

Connie,
Very pretty!! Thanks again for taking the time to stop by!!!
Almost all of our snow is melted now except for the piles created by shoveling and plowing. When you get that much snow in March, it does melt fast..
Hugs,Deb
