Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop!

Welcome to Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge #115 and the release of Silly Cats 2!  If you just arrived from Shannan's blog then you are in the right place!  If you just happened by my blog then start at the beginning of the blog hop at Skipping Stones Design.

Oh my goodness, this set has the most unbelievably adorable sentiments!  I can't pick a fav, but for today I just had to use the "does this card make my butt look big?" one!  Snort!  I stuck pretty close to the sketch this time, and you can view the sketch at the bottom of my post if you want to play along with us!

My papers are all from A Walk in the Park by Echo Park.  Nesting Frame 3 die (behind the kitty) is from Lifestyle Crafts, as is the Nesting Scallops circle die.  My ribbon and button are both from Bo Bunny.

Here's a better look at this sassy little feline.  Is he cute or what?  That look is priceless and one I often get from all of my cats!  Below is the closeup of the ribbon treatment, tied off with some Tangerine twine.

And heres a peek from the side so you can see all the dimension going on.  I used Crafty Power Tape from 3L Scrapbook Adhesives for all the popped up pieces.  Its great cause I can cut a large piece for the large mat or a small bit for behind the kitty's tail.  ALSO, it comes in black or white!

Here's this week's sketch:

OK, so be sure to hop along and leave all the designers some love!  I am honored to be a guest this month at SSD along with Barb Turpin and sketch artist Kazan Clark!  Today's sketch (along with the rest of the sketches we are using this month were designed by Kazan)
