Purrfect!


The midweek challenge on Operation Write Home's blog this week was a Free For All- create a card using any of our favorite past challenges or sketches! Although I normally like the fact that the sketches and challenges provide some direction, I thought this would be fun for a change. I really don't have a favorite challenge, but I loved looking through all of the gorgeous cards people created for the "Four Legged Friends" theme. There is something about a cute animal that brings a smile to almost anyone's face. 

Robin made this card and when I saw it, I thought it would be perfect for the blog this week. Recently we have been using a lot of stickers from Paper House Productions. The stickers are awesome- they are images of either animals, flowers, shells etc. and they are incredibly realistic. A few months back, we posted a card using the sea shell stickers. For this card, Robin used the small kitten stickers from Paper House. She put each sticker on a 1 inch white square created by a Clever Lever Punch. The cats are then sitting on a chocolate chip brown square and all of this is on some matching green and brown paper. All of the matching papers are from Stampin' Up. Finally, the sentiment came from the Stampin' Up 'Pun Fun' stamp set. She punched it out using the two Stampin' up sentiment punches and backed it with the matching chocolate chip paper. 

We have made many versions of this card, using cats, dogs and even butterflies. If you have not used these stickers before, you should really check them out! They are a lot of fun to use on cards for our heros. Hope you like the card!
