Now for my card to share with you!

Fell in love with Crissy's new Digi the second I saw it. A fat cat, in a tube wearing shades. I mean common! Great image!
His name is "Cool Cat Lifesaver"

I don't know why but 99% of the time I color a cat image I always color a orange stripe cat. Maybe it is remembering our old cat Goober. She was a tabby, and I just go straight for orange on cats. So with my Copics I colored in some stripes. You want some honesty here? I made a boo boo on his face, after spending forever on him. Started to really pout and pitch. BUT then it came to me... pop dot on another face! A little 3-D look. So I did up another face. And then decided that the tube could be popped up to. I was trying to make it look like his paws were really holding onto the tube, but it didn't quite turn out like I was thinking. Oh well...

Side view -

My papers are all from First Editions "Boho Chic" collection. Cut out the cat and used the stripes as the background. I also added some corners from Whimsy. Corner Dies Set - My Go To corners! Found the sentiment in some of my printed out Digi Sentiments - Also Whimsy! "Chill Out!" is part of the City Talk set. PERFECT for this Cool Cat don't you think?

Oh almost forgot I added stickles to the sunglasses! They just had to have some bling to them, right?

Here is the inside - Same paper collection -

And Copic Colors Used 

NOW it is time for you to go to the next lady on the hop - (after you peek at Animal Crackers below) 

So have fun over at Jackie S ! And have a great Saturday!

So cute and great idea about cutting out another face! I would have thrown a fit and then crumpled up my card before thinking of that. That would have made me madder!LOL
