A card & a little fur.......

.......yes, that's a cat in the background. She was very curious about my picture taking.I was having a heck of a time getting a good shot of this card, so I finally gave up & this is what I ended up with. Wow....where does the time go? I feel like the last couple of weeks has just been a blur. Anybody else feeling that way? I've been wanting to try and participate in Tracy's sketch challenges every week since that is about all that I can seem to keep up with on my blog, LOL, and somehow last week I missed it, so I wanted to make sure to participate this week. I just love these little chicks from Memory Box. I think they are long retired, but I still think they are adorable. I colored the image with my Koh-i-noor pencils & added a pale shadow around the image (also with my pencils although not visible in the photo). I paper pieced the witch hat, glittered it up in some black glitter & popped it out with some dimensionals, but it is also very hard to see in this photo. I am not happy with the placement of the sentiment, but I wasn't about to rip the whole thing apart. I think I will take the advice of using the stamp positioner to move the sentiment around next time to decide where I like it. Thanks for stopping by today. I hope everyone is having a fabulous September so far!!
