Birthday Greetings Card with Kitty


Happy Birthday to me! Yep, today is my birthday... so I made myself a card. Why not? I used my favorite color purple, my favorite Secret Garden patterned paper by Bo Bunny and my favorite new Kitty stamp by Whimsy Stamps. The layout is from one of my favorite sketch challenges Tuesday Morning Sketches, although I took a few more creative liberties than usual (hopefully they don't mind). Copic markers were used to color the image and the kitty is colored to look like my first indoor kitty. She lived with us for twenty years before she crossed the rainbow bridge, it's been almost five years ago since she passed. She was the sweetest kitty with beautiful blue eyes! My coloring doesn't do her justice so I'm sharing a picture.

Here she is Miss Precious:

I'm entering this Birthday Greeting Card with Kitty into the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

  2. What a super card - great layout and a fabulous kitty image :-)
    I love the photo of your kitty - I had one like that too many years ago. He was gorgeous but one day he decided to walk off and go live wild on the cliffs by the sea, I saw him every day but he never came home :-(gz
