Purr-fect Friend

Happy Friday! I'm so glad the weekend has arrived.

When I saw the Midnight Madness sketch this week (MMSC54), I knew I wanted to play along. The long rectangular panel was perfect for a Magnolia image, and I had this new one that had never seen ink before.

I selected my colors from The Play Date Cafe's color challenge this week (PDCC30), The beautiful springy combination of pink, light green and pale yellow was their challenge for the week. I'm also entering it in the The ABC Challenge~U is for Unused stash. I dug into my stash of Papertreyink buttons that I've been hoarding. I used twelve buttons on this one and didn't even make a dent in my stash. Finally, it also qualifies for KLNS30~Show some love to our animal friends.

Thanks so much for dropping by today. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. We have some soccer and baseball games tomorrow, then company coming on Sunday. Should be a fun weekend.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Magnolia
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, PTI ssw, SU dsp
Embellishments: PTI buttons, twine, copics, stickes, lace, SU border punch
