Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 94 - Cute & Cuddly

Good Morning Everyone

I cannot believe it is Saturday already - where has this week gone too?

Apologies for being missing for a week - I have had my first week back at work after having a glorious three weeks off and to be quite honest I've come home every night pretty much cream crackered!

So without further ado this weeks challenge at Totally Gorjuss is Cute and Cuddly where we would like to see an animal on your card.  Make sure you get yourself over there and be inspired by what the wonderful DT ladies have created.  The prize this week is from Simon Says Stamp so get your entries in to be in with a chance to win.

For my card, how could I resist this little cutie from Mo Manning:

Check out little kitty's face - he or she is sooo not impressed - I just love it - it brings a real smile to my face.

The recipe for this card is as follows:

Stamp:  Digital Stamp from Mo Manning called "Patience"
Papers:  Nit Wit "Me-Wow"
Sentiment Stamp:  Whimsy Stamps "Everyday Mini Postage" from My Mum's Craft Shop
Buttons:  Cheery Lynn Designs Buttons #1 from Dies to Die For

The image has been coloured with Copics as follows:

Skin:  E11 E00 E000 R20 R30
Hair:  E47 E57 E34
Jumper & Shoes:  R02 R01 R00 E09 E08
Jeans:  B97 B95 B93 R01 R00

Fur:  E17 E15 E13 E11 E00 E000 E0000 R20

Shading & Outline:  W5 W3 W1 W0 Blender Pen

Everything has been edged in "Brushed Corduroy" Distress Inks.

Well that's it from me for today - I am busily working in the background on some commissions for a magazine for their November and December publications - Christmas will be hear before we know it :os!

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Patties Creations Challenge #28 where the theme this week is Animal or Insect.
Art Impressions Challenge #28 where the theme this week is Anything Goes.

Just want to take this opportunity to say a big "Thank You" to all you lovely people who are now following me (and those that drop in every now and again) - 55 already I can't quite believe it in just one month - and all the lovely comments you leave, it really does help and gives me a real buzz - so THANK YOU so much from the bottom of my heart.

I hope you all have a great weekend whatever you are doing.

Take care and be safe.

Hi Hazel I just thought I'd pop over for a nosey. Love your style.

You wondered where I live in Aberdeenshire! I'm about 20 miles north of Aberdeen. 6 miles north of Ellon and about 12 miles south of Peterhead. We're about a couple of miles from the coast as the crow flies. We're near Cruden Bay too which is well known for its golf course and also as the place where Bram Stoker was inspired to write Dracula. Not sure if that helps to locate me!!
