Penny Black Kitty with Valentine Balloons

Welcome, and thanks for visiting. Today's card is from the Penny Black Transparent Share a Hug set. I'm allergic to cats, so don't usually buy cat motifs, but the Penny Black kitty is one that I gravitate towards. He's cute & looks so happy. Easy to color as well.


- Center red balloon got a layer of Clear WoS, then added some glossy accents for shine.

- A sizzix die (has no name on it) for the Kitty. Papers from stash, and the top scallop was a 6x6 Authentique pack, cut with a La-La Land border scallop. Authentique and Graphic 45 are 2 of my favorite paper companies. Love to find these patterns in 6x6, which I personally find more user friendly.

That's it! Don't forget to check out the Happy Little Stampers February Christmas Challenge. The theme this month is a Tick Tack Toe challenge one.

Ya'll have a nice evenin', and Big Hugs.

Edit: Thanks to visiting Carol's Blog this evening, I learned that this card might fit in with the Penny Black Saturday Challenge for February  going on to use hearts or red with a PB product. Just linked in, so I hope it works as this post went live today.

And one other sweet blogger suggested this cute PB Kitty would fit in over at Penny Black & More since it fits in with the February challenge of Anything Goes with a Stamp and a die! Thanks Brenda.http://stamping-fantasies.blogspot.com/.    Aren't bloggers just the greatest support community? Yes indeed!

What a lot of yumminess here Mary, so clever how you combines all those papers as though they were just meant to be and then that gorgeous Penny Black image centre stage.

It would also fit our theme at Penny Black and More challenge, this month it a anything goes with stamps and dies and as always we have some awesome prizes and would love to see you over there.

Here she goes - she is on a roll. How in the world do you have the time to be so productive Mary? I still have not had the time to answer your last letter!!!
I do love PB stamps. All this little kitty needs now is a little mouse to give a smooch to!

Penny Black kitties are non-allergenic! This is a sweet card. I really like the different black and white backgrounds paired with that floral piece, and of course the sweet cat!
