Flutter By Kitty

Oh how I enjoy Wednesdays! I mean it's Flutter by time, the week's half way over and I don't have to work at the preschool but a couple of hours!! The weather has been so cold and gloomy - I'm not ready for it. I'm one that LOVES sunshine...even a little. And now we are supposed to have rain for like the next 3 days. If I could just get a good heater for my basement then I'd just lock myself in my scrap room all day!!

Yesterday, I posted a card I made with the new Penny Black stamps I got. I decided to use them again for my card today. I colored my image in using my Aquacolor Crayons and Niji Waterbrush again. I love the look it gives and by using the water brush to crayon technique I'm able to control my color better and get nice results.
I used a Mojo Monday sketch for the layout. Here's a close up of the image. I like how I put yellow around the kitty - at least someone is seeing some sunshine, lol!

And speaking of kitties I might as well show mine - Here's Jazzy. She's a little prissy but she's my kitty and I love her :o)
Geez I'm a little backwards today. I usually get the details out in the beginning - oh well! The challenge this week is an OPEN one - that means anything goes as long as you use a butterfly or fairy on your card! Come in and join the fun - create a card and then share it by linking it on Danni's blog using Mr. Linky! This week we have a guest designer, Christi. She has a fabulous blog so be sure to stop by and say hi! Don't forget to check out the other mega talented DT members as well.

Well I'm outta here - off to do a few hours of work at the preschool and then hopefully home to do some much needed blog surfing. I'm having withdrawals of visiting and commenting on your wonderful blogs. Thanks so much for stopping by!!
