Blogger's Challenge - Spring flowers


Today's Blogger's Challenge is all about Springtime Flowers. I have a whole bouquet for you!
My friend Ida sent me this cat image -- she knows how much I adore cats, after all (if you want to know more about my cat "affection", go to my "Cruel Cats" page-- it may just make you laugh!). I do have to admit, that this cat is cute. Mainly because it is just an image (LOL).
My cat & the flowers were colored using Watercolor pencils and a blender pen. The cool background uses the Artsy Dimension technique from the newest (April 2008) edition of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I thought the colorful background with the flowered Cuttlebugged dimension added just the right touch to the cat. The inside of the card says "...a wonderful spring".
Sorry that I can't tell you who makes the cat -- it was not my stamp. Anyone know? In any case, go check out the work of the other stampers on the Blogger's challenge list on my sidebar. There are tons of great artists in the challenge!

Cute card Pat and yes that cat is "fluffles". I have many of them but the one I like the best is the Thanksgiving one, where he says,"What feathers". It is by stampendous and there is a whole line of them. His Easter one is cute to with the bunny with no ears. Fluffles reminds me of Garfield, maybe that's why I like him so much.
Keep up the good work.
