Seems I'm not quite done with sewing, having finished the quilt.  There are a couple of challenges looking for stitching or thread.  I inked a card panel with SU inks, the new type seem really juicy and work well.  Hello Honey, Peach Passion, Flirty Flamingo. Dapper Denim.  Lightly sketched a bare tree and stitched it on my sewing machine.  Added a bit of Distress Ink to the trunk where the background showed through and then I grounded it.  SU sentiment and an extension of the ground line were added to the panel.
Less is More - thread
Addicted to CAS - stitch

And here is the lovely Evee enjoying her quilt :)

More cattiness

Now that the quilt is finished and on its way I can get back to all the paper craft ideas that are spinning around in my mind :).   I'm continuing to play with those fab Katzelcraft kitties.  This is a very ageist card for my bestie, I gold embossed and masked off Happy Little Stampers big numbers, that were in my amazing goodie bag at retreat.  Cat is coloured with Copics,sentiment is computer generated, Problem Secretary.  I love his expression!

Happy Little Stampers DT call - clean and simple
Simon Says - stamp it
Cute Card Thursday - animals/ creatures
4 Crafty Chicks - birthday
Alphabet Challenge - numbers

More feline NBUS fun

Here's a late entry for Darnell's 7th NBUS Challenge - a CAS birthday card for a dear friend.  Sentiment is computer generated.  My adorable, grumpy NBUS Katzelkraft kitties are coloured with Copics and I've added a thin black mat and some b&w twine.  Nothing else to say about this one really!
Also entered for Simon Says anything goes.
