GDT at Connie Can Crop

HAPPY LABOR DAY !     

     Good morning!   Today I have the honor of being a Guest Designer for the Anything Goes challenge at Connie Can Crop - September challenge.  

     The sponsor for this challenge is Treasure Box and they have some really marvelous digital stamps, papers, and cutting files.  You can learn more about them and find a link to their website on the challenge post at Connie Can Crop.  

     I chose to use this darling little kitten from the "Pound Pals One" set of images.  They also have some cute little birds in some of their sets, but when it came to a choice between fur or feathers, I had to go with fur or my own feline fur babies would have been pouting.  Besides, it's easier to color fur than it is to get really good feathers.  :-D

     From the look on his face, I just knew that he was feeling alone and left behind when his human kids went back to school and didn't take him along and that generated the sentiment.



     This card took off in an unplanned direction while I was working on it.  Ever have that happen to you?  I got it all colored using my ProMarkers, cut it with a simple rectangle die (Spellbinders), and then saw a scad of bits and pieces which were on my desk, left over from a previous project.  Because the golden yellow seemed to fit right in with his calico colors, I added the die cuts (all Impression Obsession dies), framed out the printed sentiment, and added the corner triangle.  Voila'!  The card layout was done and all it needed was a bit of ribbon for a bow.


Enjoy, and come play at Connie Can Crop this month, won't you?  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
