Whimsy and Stars

Happy March! Where did February go? Time is just zipping along for me!

Had some time to play with this cute Whimsy and Stars Lily's Cupcake image today. Love the sweet little kitty. I gave her fur some texture with a washcloth dipped in blender solution, love to do this on fur.

I played along with Tracy's Eat Sleep Stamp sketch (Sketchy Thursday #162). Wow, it was only posted today, lol, must be a new record. Check out her sketches, they are awesome. I flipped this one sideways to fit my image.

Cute card Kathy - Of course I love anything with a kitty in it. If you go to my blog you will see I left you a little love. If you don't want to participate, don't worry, just ignore it.

Kathy, This is a fabulous card! There are so many great things about it. First, I love your coloring - great texture on the fur. I need to try that technique but I am always worried I'm going to smear the image. The colors you used are yummy. The little twine bow is the cutest accent.
