Simple Pleasures

If anyone owns a pet you will have to agree with me that snuggling up with your little fur baby is one of lifes simple pleasures. Of course, I have a West Highland White terrier and she would rather kill a bunny or a squirrel than snuggle up with me but we do have our quiet time once a day and I cherish it.




For this card I used Stamping Bella's Kittycattabella and started coloring her up with my pencils, something felt odd though and then I realized that I always use copics for my bella's...don't ask me why, I just always do! So after coloring her pants and shirt with pencils, I switched to copics for the rest of her and her fur babies. I had my girlfriend in mind when making this card and she has two Ragdoll cats so I tried to color these little cats to match hers. Then I finished up the shading with my pencils. Order was established! I added the Simple Pleasures sentiment and finished it off with a bit of ribbon and a Basic Grey Glazed Brad.


Don't forget you still have time to play along in this week's Bellarific Friday challenge. This week is a sketch challenge hosted by Jen-a-bella, and if you are sketch 'challenged' like me, you'll appreciate this one. You can find all the details http://stampingbella.com/blog/?p=1742.
