It's Friday...and I'm a little tardy...

Happy Friday everyone!
Today's post is more than a little late but let's chalk that up to a busy weekend ahead and an even busier week behind me. Sunday is the Stamp a Stack for the Troops event of course, so I'm working on getting all my ducks lined up in a row for that.

I now have 25 kits ready to roll which is pretty darned exciting don't you think? That's 250 cards for the troops! BIG HUGE Thank yous to all the people who signed up to participate. You guys rock!

So, today's card is a bit of kitty-lover fun.  *smiles* This digital image (Wild Thing) is from Tiddly Inks. Visit the website at your own risk...they've got so many cute images to choose from it's really hard to get away with just one!

The card base is a 5-1/4 x 10-1/2 piece of Soft Suede folded. I layered together two panels of Kraft cs with a couple of Crate Paper designer papers and added suede colored brads in all the corners before adhering them to the card.
Next, I cut a strip of Kraft cs approximately 1-1/4 inch wide and layered a 1 inch strip of Bazzill lemonade cs over the center. I snipped it into two pieces and then flipped each one around so that the clipped ends were on the outside and then added three more brads to the inside ends of both to lace my baker's twine through.  Note: I set the brads somewhat "loosely" so that I could lace the twine after I adhered the paper pieces to the card.
The kitty is printed on Neenah Solar White, colored with Copics and cut with Spellbinders Classic Circles then sponged lightly with Soft Sky before removing the piece from the die. The Melon Mambo scallop circle is cut with a Quikutz Nesting Flowers die, layered to the image piece and adhered to the card with foam dimensionals. Finally, the sentiment (Hero Arts) is stamped on white with Memento Tuxedo Black, sponged and punched with a medium oval punch. The Melon Mambo scallop oval is punched and also popped up on dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by tonight!
Enjoy your weekend!
