Hello and TGIF!

Well, it has been a heck of a busy week and it’s looking like my weekend will be about the same. I thought I’d get a little ahead of the game and give you a special Friday handmade card share to tide you over for the weekend. This card went to my lovely friend Sylvia in Sweden that I do ATC (Artist Trading Card) swaps with several times a year. We always have so much fun and we both love cats which is why this card was purrrfect ;).

Without further ado here is the adorable kitty card using distress oxides for the background:

Some Stills:

Now I am a newbie at card making, so please be kind ;).  I really did enjoy making this one, and actually, since making it I have discovered the Tim Holtz Micro Glaze which if I used the alcohol ink glossy cardstock would really pop the background. See the wheels are always churning folks.

I hope this card gave you some inspiration and brightened up your Friday a bit. I  know playing with my Distress Oxides always cheers me up.

Have a safe and fabulous weekend!
