I'm sitting here with a cat in my lap (Henry) and one on the back of my chair (Mr. Binks) helping me post my card for the Glitterbee Challenge. This is a card of Firsts!!! It's the first time I've used my Serenade Cricut cartridge and my new cardstock I bought at Gina K's. This is the first card I have ever entered into a challenge, the first one I've ever made specifically for my blog, and the first one I've made from a sketch.
Here is how interpreted the sketch:
I've used the curve of the birdcage and the curve of the sofa arm to represent the half-circle. The collar on the kitty represents the bow and the sentiment is used instead of the three brads on the upper right. The wide rectangle is the sofa and quilt and the other is the curious kitty......
Four Hours Later :
It took me fooooorever to make the card and even longer to figure out how who manufactured all the materials I used. The sentiment stamp is still a mystery.....I even looked on ebay to try to find the name...
Stamps: Catitude by Inkadinkadoo and I seriously can't remember who made the sentiment.
