Made from Scratch

How about I share a fun little card with you today using one of my new Paper Smooches stamp sets- Nine Lives?  I just love this set, all of the stamps in it are so cute and I love the sentiments that go with them.   Punny and cute are my favorite kind of sentiments for cards, they just make me giggle. The only thing I would add to this set is a series of lines that look like cat scratches, it would be perfect for the "made from scratch" sentiment! :)

So this card isn't for anyone or anything in particular, just wanted to use this cute kitty.  I have to say, I was proud of myself for not stamping the little cat on white, I seem to always do that and color or paper piece.  But this time, NO!  I stamped on Kraft and added some black tips and spots on her.  I think she's a cutie do you?  I had fun adding the fish bones around her and then giving them a dash of color to match the color challenge over at the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog this week.  I also dug into my brads, I don't use many of those, and found these fun ones from Stampin' Up! that matched perfectly.  In the end I am pretty happy with this card and it was easy to make.  This would be a good design to use to make a bunch of cards.

Well thanks for stopping, hoping you have a good day.
