Second Week of Challenge

The second week of "Here, Kitty, Kitty has begun.  I am afraid I personally have not created anything this time as I have been working with a  very sick husband who had back surgery this week.  I hope next week he will be better.  So, therefore; let's see what the other team members created this week.
I just loved the cute kitty images we received from Stitchy Bear/Barbara Jensen, I used the one for a Birthday card last week and decided this little guy needed a Santa Hat, and I had one from High Hopes stamps (Canadian company) I bought it 4 or 5 years ago and think I might have used it once. I fussy cut the hat and attached it to the image. The wreath is a brad, bought at my favourite little store in Delhi ON, they have the best brads. The sentiment is from a Stampin'up Christmas set. Patterned paper is from a DCWV Christmas and Winter diecut pad.
It doesn't take much for a cat to be happy -- if they are stretching or rolling around, or playing with their friends or chasing butterflies, whatever it is -- they are at peace.  These are good lessons for their human friends to learn.  I tried to capture that feline joy for this tag,  I used two digital kitty images from our challenge sponsor Stitchy Bear's designer Barbara Jensen.  I printed both on paper from the primavera paper line by itKuPiLLi.  The other background papers are random designer papers from my stash, as are the butterfly stickers.  The ecstasy stamp is from "marked by distinction."  I did additional decorating with my Molotow pens.
For the second week of Here Kitty, Kitty, I created a bookmark using a digital image from Stitchy Bear/ Barbara Jensen which I colored with watercolor pencils. I layered my kitty on a paper from a kit called Cute Cats and you can find it at Digitally Me.Then I added some flowers, ribbons and a sentiment from Becky's Scrap. Keep playing along with us and have a magical week!
I've used Stitchy Bear's 'little tiggy tiger' kindly supplied by the challenge sponsor, coloured in copics and mounted on to an offcut of copper mirror card. The paw print ribbon and the computer printed sentiment were also mounted on to other snippets of copper mirror card and everything matted on to some animal print card that I've had for a long time ... just waiting for a 'tiggy tiger' to come along!

A special thank you goes to Barbara Jensen on Stitchey Bear Outlet for sponsoring this challenge.
