Cat Nap

Morning all, it's Saturday so that means another sketch challenge over at Sketch Saturday

and this week we are sponsored by our friends at

where there is a set of 6 Flexmarkers up for grabs! oh yes!
and all you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is to make a card or any other creation, using any products that you like, providing you use the sketch provided... Simples!

Here is my card...

When I design the sketches, I don't have any particular images in mind, and sometimes I go *EEK!* when I look again at a sketch and have to decide what products to use. This was one of those sketches.
So I looked through my stamps, and when I pulled out 'Cat Nap' by Artful Stamper, I knew it would suit the sketch layout.
I coloured this adorable image with promarkers, and added glitter gel pen to the bell on the end of the hat, and white flock to the 'fur' trim.
The papers are all from the same pad I used a couple of weeks ago, 'Forever Christmas Cards' by HOTP.
The sentiment is handwritten.

Please visit The Saturdays to see what they have made this week too, they have a fab mix of styles and themes to inspire you. Those girls are so talented, you'll find links to their blogs in the sidebar >>>
This week is the final week as Guest Designer for Donna, but we are delighted to say that she will be staying on with us full time as our newest Saturday Girl! Woohooo! welcome Donna, so happy that you are staying with us :)
