Kitty Love

Welcome to a new challenge on the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog.  This one is a fun one and should be pretty easy for everyone: Bling It, Girlfriend! (use some bling).
We have three fabulous sponsors:



I was given this adorable "Covered In Kitties" image from Sami Stamps:
 Ok, I got to pick my image and I chose this one because I am the crazy cat lady.  : )  For some reason, Sami's images always make me need  to paper piece them.  Don't you love the polka dotted shirt?!  I used a lot of bling on this one!  I've had these rhinestone ovals for a looooong time and they just never really fit with anything.  The largest is way too large for the size of card I usually make, but since I made a 5x5 1/2 in. card, it was a good fit.  Yeay, now I've used them up AND created a beautiful card.  I added the blue rhinestones to the banner and the dotted strips and then I added a tiny clear rhinestone for her earring.  Now on to the kitties; at this time we only have three cats. So, I colored 3 of the cats to match the ones I have and then remembered that we had a fourth one 9 years ago (we only had him for a couple months before we lost him).  So the dark gray is my 16-year-old who is a total lap kitty.  The bigger light gray is the kitten we lost; the little gray stripey (you can see her stripes in the next photo) is my newest, she's just over 1 year old, and then there is the big orange stripey.  He's 8 and he accepts love only on his own terms.  Here's a close up so you can see them a bit better.
Thanks for stopping by.  Head on over to the LTSCB blog to see how the rest of the team added bling to their cards.
