Hello Friend



Good morning! I had a lot of fun making this card. My 6-year-old was hanging out with me when I was making it and said she likes the "fat cat." Funny...she also said, "He looks like he swallowed a balloon!" Hehe, I think she's right. :)

The cat, sentiment, and butterflies are from my Hello Friend transparent set. The grass is from Sweet Home. I sponged the sky with Ballet Blue ink and underneath the grass with Old Olive ink. The entire panel was matted with 05-002 Fern Green Tritone CS. An extra cat and trio of balloons were stamped, cut out, and popped up on foam tape. Stickles were added to the butterflies, balloons, and the cat's cheeks. Here's a close-up...



That's it for me. Hope you have a really great day!

Love it! I just love how you did the sky and the grass. The grass fits just perfectly. I adore the cat with the balloons. I think your daughter is right...he did swallow a balloon! Love the little ribbon at the side too. You always add these little touches to your cards...LOVE IT!

I have to agree with you six year old, he had to swallow something to make him so chubby. Wonderful card, great background and I love all the little details you added.
