Oldies But Goodies at Karen's Doodles

Morning All. It's Thursday (again) and that means another Oldies But Goodies moment over at the Karen's Doodles Challenge Blog. Take a look - you're bound to find some inspiration! And while you're there, why not check out this week's challenge, which is 'Give Thanks'. We want to see your 'Thank You' projects - you have until Sunday evening to get them to us - using your favourite Karen's Doodles images.

So on to today's card:

Image: Karen's Doodles, 'Princess Kitty'

Papers: October Afternoon and SEI (I think!)

Embellishments: Bits and bobs from my recent (well, last month at least) win over at Sketchy Colors

Isn't this an adorable (and so true) image?  She is definitely the cat that got the cream!  I coloured her up with my Copics and then went back in with my Prismas to add a little shading and some 'fur'.  She's certainly a very regal cat.

Now, I have to say that although I love these embellishments, they are not really working on this card.  In fact, this is the second time I've made this card and, to be honest, I really should have changed my mind before I started it again!  (If you remember, the first one met with disaster when a cup of tea decided to spill all over it! - not my fault, of course!)  But, I faithfully reproduced what I'd made before and, well, look, it's not my best card design, okay?!  However, you can't deny that the image is gorgeous and I'm actually very pleased with my colouring.  Maybe I need to reuse this image in a different way - look out for version two!

So, another day at work but one less to go until the weekend.  I get a crafting day on Saturday as my OH is going fishing all day and I have new stash arriving tomorrow, ready for my Christmas cards. Yaaaaay!

Happy crafting
