Merry Monday's 200th Celebration

Hello Friends,
This week we would like everyone to help us celebrate Merry Monday's 200th Challenge. All of the Design Team have asked a fellow Card Maker who inspires them to add an Inspiration card.  My lovely Designer is Kim Singdahlsen and you will find her awesome blog "Joyful Creations With Kim " here, Thanks Kim for joining us for the celebration.
Kim's Card
For my card I have used the Sketch and Colour challenges from the Challenge board.  I used Crumb Cake Blendabilities and a Water Based Marker to get the different shades of Kraft on my card.  I water coloured the Cat with with my Crumb Cake Marker and Aqua Painter and the two dogs were coloured with the Light Crumb Cake Blendabilities. I played around with the Cat's scarf  using two shades of green and stamped a second image layering it on foam tape for more dimension.  I finished off with the embossed heart, Dazzling Diamonds and a Pom Pom on the Santa Hat.

  1. Thank you for inviting me! I love your trio of critters! I've had that stamp on my wishlist for quite awhile. It never quite makes it into my collection because I know I will get grief from my family since we have TWO cats and ONE dog!

  2. Oh what a cute image, I have a niece who would appreciate this card, but I would need to add two more cats and about three more dogs! Seriously!! So happy you invited Kim along for this celebration, her card is pure inspiration, love it! Have a fabulous week, Sue!

  3. Just love your sweet furry trio, Sue - great colors and the embossed heart adds the perfect touch! Love your guest's card too - such fun snowmen! Thanks for the Merry Monday inspiration and congrats on #200!!

    The first one I love the colors. The second one I love the img.
