MMSC76 Purr-fect/Party Animal

Hello everyone - how has your week been - can you believe it is time for another Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - they come around so fast don't they - I know you LOVE them as much as I do!!

I have gone a little crazy this week and have not one but - three cards for you!  The first one being this divine image from our weekly Sponsor DRS Designs - check out the attitude on 'Miss Thang' here!  LOL!  How can you not LOVE her!?

I coloured her with Prismacolor Pencils and used Flowersoft for the very first time - using it on the tail and a little bit added to the chest - I do love the texture it adds - fun!

I found this cute little chain of flowers that I forgot I had  and it was perfect for the sketch!
  The DP is Basic Grey and the embossing has been done with the D'vine Swirls Embossing Folder.

My next card is made using the "priscillastyles" image - as you may know Priscilla used a photo of one of our digs Charlie for this image - he is perfect for my Christmas cards this year - although IRL he would be horrified to be dressed like this!  LOL!

I coloured him with Prismacolor Pencils.  I added some chunky gold braid to the side panel, this was part of a bag of lace given to me by my friend Ann and the gorgeous DP is from  my DT Sistah Gunn - it is divine - I love all of the texture and bling - where would I be without my friends - thanks Girls!!

My final card is for the 'priscillastyles' Design Team, using Priscilla's gorgeous butterflies - it is the first time I have used this particular one - and thought I would make it look like a film strip,  The chiffon ribbon has been threaded through a pearl buckle/slider and had some bling added to it.

I have printed an extra set of the butterflies and cut out the wings on one, popping it up on foam tape - I love the dimension it gives with the butterflies.  Kindy Glitz has been added to give that extra shimmer!

These cards are for the following challenges:
The Sisterhood of Crafter's - All Things known as Bling
Paper Cutz #63 - Anything Goes
Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog  - Digi and Favourite Coloring Technique (cards 2 and 3)
Inky Impressions - Anything Goes

    You have been very busy here. All three equally as beautiful!!!!


  10. Wow Linda, not one but 3 cards!!! Each one is stunning. You are one talented lady. Love them all!

  11. I don't think I've ever do more than 1 card with the same sketch, but you sure did an awesome job making 3 with that sketch. These are beautiful cards. The texture of flowersoft is so cute on the first one. The gold lace looks delightful for the second one and the butterfly is fabulous on the third card. Great take on of this sketch Linda!!

  12. You know I visited you with these card over at SCS but I need to come to your blog as well!!! Why is it that I can't help but see Pam when I look at that frou frou Cat!!! Could it be because of the "Princess" reminder we get!!! lol Anyway, these are just fabulous. I love Charlie all decked out for Christmas and the mirrored image butterflies are spectacular. Beautiful work again Linda!!!
