Hi there, Alli cat!

Hi folks! It's Friday night and Dave and I have packed the car and will be starting out for home in the morning Saturday. So sad! I hate when vacation is over and it's back to reality! On the other hand I miss our pets, my gardens, my friends, etc so once we're on the road all will be well (after about an hour, anyway). This cute little cat is from Mos' Digital Pencil Too and is called Alli wants in. I used a generic Papertrey Ink sentiment in the upper window. I have so many that would fit there, it was hard to choose!
I wanted to paper piece the curtains, but this plaid from Basic Grey doesn't come in the 6X6 pad :( (Why do they DO that!) The plaid was much too large so i colored my own!
I started with a base color (BG10) then added some shading in Bg72. Then I put in the plaid lines with YG17 or 25. Then I added more shading with BG72 and BG18 (if I remember correctly!)
The rest of them image was pretty easy to color. I tried to make the birds look like orioles and the cat look like our Charlie. the card is 4" x6" to accomodate the long image I printed.

Thanks for coming by! I'm so happy to have reached 200,000 hits! Thank YOU!! Thank You!!!
Wishing you a terrific day and weekend. I'll post again as soon as I get laundry started and a chance to sit down in my "studio"
Love ya! Cheryl
