Wise Kitty

Hello friends.  It is downright freezing here.  Ran some errands today and stopped in at my favorite stamp store for some goodies.  Going to be below zero with the wind chill factor for the next few days.

Made this card with a new stamp I purchased at Stampendous.  I have this stamp from years ago, but it is smaller and the scene includes another book on the table with a little bird sitting on it.  I always loved this stamp and when I saw the kitty up closer, just had to have it.

Stamp - Stampendous, inside sentiment (Whipper Snapper) and sentiment on front (Stampa Rosa) are old. stamps.
Cream base card, light blue textured card stock
Small glass hearts
Bow die is Tim Holtz Alterations by Sizzix
Embossing folder frame is also by Sizzix
sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink around edges
Colored with Copics

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later..........

It's easy to see why you had to have this stamp. Such a studious little one, darling. Love the whole card. Hope you plan on staying in for the next few frigid days. I'm hoping not to have to go out either. It is going to be brutal. More crafting time. I spent the entire day re organizing my craft room, now I just hope I can find things to work with. LOL Have a good day.

Oh Sue I love this image and wanted it for ages, will have to get it.
Your card is gorgeous, love the background and your embellishments.

This is the photo we say on the TV news of the climber, fantastic, Alistair is drooling over the ice axes the climber is using. Alistair has done a lot of ice climbing during his climbing career, so he love the picture.
Keep warm, and stay safe, hugs Kate x

What colors did you use to color the cat and book...COPIC?

Donna Ellis said...

wow! You have NAILED the coloring on this image, Sue! I've seen the image before, but never done this beautifully. The eye glasses look so dimensional - and the general sense of peace is so pervasive throughout the card! It is wonderful! hugs, de
