May Cookies - Take 2

What an absolutely  perfect theme for our second May challenge over at IF YOU GIVE A CRAFTER A COOKIE. Brian and I recently adopted a sweet little kitten from the Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center and she has really stolen our hearts. Well actually, she chose Brian and the rest is history !! We had to say good-bye to our much-loved Anna a year ago and I have not even wanted to think about getting another cat. But I was starting to feel like it was time to begin looking and Brian definitely  was ready. Sooooooooooooo  I thought the process would take awhile and give me time to really get used to the idea, but that's not exactly what happened.  The first day we looked, we saw a cute little white kitten named Maxine. Well, she wrapped Brian around her little paw and we now have had her almost 1 month.  She has the cutest little face and I thought she looked like a little pixie, so now we have our sweet Pixie Dust . And that is why this theme is perfect !! Our sponsor for this challenge is Beccy's Place - they have a fabulous variety of clear AND digi stamps. Several team members have used their digis for this challenge. 
 



Pixie is the friendliest kitten ever and always so happy to see us when we come home from work or even just enter a room. She loves to roll around and really enjoys having her belly rubbed.  That inspired my card for this challenge !!



  • I placed a gold doily in the lower right corner of a Molly & Rex card base and trimmed the edges. These cards look like they are water-colored and are fabulous !! I got them on clearance at Michaels.
  • I stamped the cat image and sentiment on Neenah Stardust White cardstock using Memories India Black Ink . The stamps are from the Waffle Flower Flora Cat  stamp set. I fussy-cut the cat and trimmed around the sentiment.
  • The cat image was colored using a variety of my favorite markers - from my beloved Faber-Castell PITT Artist pens to the Sharpies I buy at the office supply store.
  • A piece of Recollections washi was placed at the bottom of the sentiment, which was then adhered to the lower right side of the card base on top of the doily. Tombow Mono Adhesive+ was used on the sentiment and the doily.
  • Tombow Foam Tabs popped up the cat image onto the upper left side of the sentiment.
  • A turquoise, pink, black and gold sequin were scattered on the front of the card to complete it and give it a bit of shimmer.
Take a look at my teammate's creations from this challenge's inspiration.  You can find them here.   Be sure to also look at Beccy's Place - they are providing a prize to one lucky person who links up a project for this challenge. I hope you will pull out your favorite dog/cat/pet stamp , get inspired and join us !!

And if you are ever looking for a pet, please remember to check out your local SPCA or Adoption Center. There are so many pets who need to be rescued to find their forever home. We are grateful for our little Pixie every day !!
