You're Purr-fect Card - TMS #485

Welcome to the first Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge of 2019! Many of you may already know that we lost a friend and former design team member Jessi Fogan at the end of December. This week we want to honor Jessi by featuring one of her last sketches. She was an inspiration to me and I always looked forward to her creations with googly eyes and fun stitching. Will you help us remember Jessi by playing along in our challenge this week? Click HERE for all the details and design team inspiration.

It was Jessi who introduced me to Paper Smooches stamps and the idea of using googly eyes on handmade cards. I know the only reason I purchased the Chubby Chums stamp set is because of Jessi's cute creations using the set. Here is a link to one of Jessi's cards using the same image and sentiment from January 19, 2016. Her card along with this weeks sketch was used to inspire this You're Purr-fect Card.

  1. let me be the first to say that your card is "purrr-fect" on so many levels, the papers used, the sewn stitches, the die stiches, the eyes (just say mischief) in other words great...I like it

  4. I was sad to read about Jessi's passing. It's so hard to believe that in this day and age there was nothing they could do for her and I know she suffered terribly. She lived in a nearby province so I imagine the health care system there was no better than it is here. But it's nice to see you and your team honouring her memory with this sketch. I hope to join in. Your card is adorable, Andrea.

    Hugs,
    Kitty
