Sweet Sketch Wednesday #66 - Meljens Designs

Melissa is offering our Sweet Sketch Wednesday winner 4 digis of your choice! So pop on over and play along. Here is the sketch that Arlana has put together for us.

And here is my card:

This image is called A Girl and Her Kitty. I just loved it right away. It brought back a lot of childhood memories when I saw it. I remember always having a cat and always carrying it around with me. Sometimes the poor thing would have to suffer through being dressed up in my doll clothes! It was always fun! I used my Copics (RV11, B14, E37, YR24, E00, E33, and BV11) to color her.
I used cardstock from the DCWV Shimmer Stack and the DPs are from the Paper Studio All Seasons pack. The plaid DP is from DCWV Sweet Matstack with glitter. The ribbon was found at Jo-Ann's. The cats were cut from my Cricut Animal Kingdom cartridge with paper from my stash.

  1. Hi Erika, glad you had a great weekend camping. I do love your card I adore those wee cats on the side great idea. As I said to both Judi and Jeannie I see my son walking around with his cat like that or over his shoulder like a fur around his neck. Great card.

  2. So cute! I love the pink kitties along the side. Great touch.

  3. I noticed the kitty embellishments right away and I am surprised they came from your Cricut!! I thought they were brads - I love them!!!! Just an adorable card Erika! I hope the school year is off to a great start for you.

Sorry I didn't get you called back last night..I didn't think you would want me called at 10:30...I will talk to you tonight sometime.. I got my billing done by 9pm and then Karla came back over. I helped her with an assignment for L.

  5. Oh Erika so fun to here about your childhood memories. Im loving the pinks and the kitties on the side so adorable and so creative. Have a sweet day!

  6. Erika, Love your pink card and those fun kitties on the side. At first I thought they were brads too. I need to use my cricut more. Like you, this image brought back childhood memories for me....I loved those cats so much I nearly choked them to death giving them hugs. Adorable card, Erika. Glad you had a fun time camping...great family memories to look back on.
