Sketchy Thursday, and a Kitty!

I went out last night, mostly just to get in the AC in the car, but also because one of my favorite local stamp stores was having a sale.....and they never have a sale. Only to find out that the sale was only for online orders, but oh well. The stamps I wanted were not available online.

This card uses one....wait, actually two of the stamps I just got. Don't ya just love this little sweet thing? My oldest son came over and said "Nice Gnome, Mom!" I had to laugh. Her name is Peggy Polka Dot, and I just love her.....I also got a little boy as well, I'll have to make a card with him real soon so y'all can see how adorable he is too!

Anyway, from looking at the sketch from Tracy, I knew I wanted to use some of my Early Bird PP, and so that pretty much decided my color scheme. This was such a fun sketch to do, thanks Tracy!

I haven't really been all that thrilled with some of the cards I have made lately, but I really really love this one. I think I'll have to use it for my August Card Class.

And now some non stampin' stuff. Ever since I saw the picture of Tracy's new kitty, Jinxy, I have thought that she is the spittin' image, only in girl form, of our newest kitty Titan, or Tininan, as he is best known in our house. We have this crazy habit of having multiple names for our pets. Kinda crazy, but oh well. So I just had to post this picture of Titan, so those of you who have seen Jinxy will know what I'm talkin' about!
