SSSC116......Enjoy the Simple Things

Good Morning Peeps!!! It is Sunday so that means it is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge Sample. 

Here is the fabulous sketch that Karen has for us this week:

I changed the sketch a bit, I made a standard size card instead of a square and I left off the flourish on the bottom.
I wanted to play with this new little set from the Stampin' Up Summer Mini called Touch of Kindness. I kept my card fairly clean and simple. I used a base of Crumb Cake and then another layer of embossed crumb cake card stock. I embossed that piece with my swiss dot EF. My main image is stamped with black stazon onto some watercolor paper and I used my aqua painter to color with. The cute little kitty is stamped onto a scrap piece and cut out and added to the main piece. I colored the kitty like one of our cats, Twitchy. Twitchy is a beautiful mischievous little boy. I have to say that if this was really our Twitchy in the picture, those birds would not be safe! Twitch loves to chase birds!!!

The DS paper on here is from the Sweet & Sour Speciality paper pack and the image and sentiment panels are matted with pumpkin pie card stock.

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.

OK, let's see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team has in store for us this week:

Well, thank you for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!

Love the kraft and orange together and the image is too cute! There would be no birds in the bird bath if our cat was around LOL! He's even brought a few live one is in the house the rotter and it has been quite the chore getting them out
