A Little Down Time

     Another precious feline fur baby to share with you today, one who has sense enough to know that naps equal "down time" and that down time is vital to both serenity and creativity, especially in hot summer weather.  :-D


     Colored with ProMarkers and die cut with a pierced rectangle die (Memory Box.)  Two more rectangles from light and dark green CS were also cut with larger dies from that set.  I added a punched butterfly to the green bow and thought a single, white rose in the corner would be enough embellishment.

     Challenges:
Crafting from the Heart
Craft Your Passion
Crafty Boots
Crafty Sentiments Designs
Crazy Challenge (R is for "Rest")
Cuttlebug Mania
Lemon Shortbread
One Stitch at a Time
SUYP Cats Only

      I'm definitely enjoying my "down time" and will see you when I return next week.  I will have a couple of cards scheduled to show you in the meantime.  Happy Stamping.    NanaConnie

Please continue to leave comments.  The "Word Verification" really isn't on.  BLOGGER INSISTS ON SHOWING THE "CAPTCHA" ICON BUT IF YOU IGNORE IT AND JUST PUBLISH YOUR COMMENT, IT WILL POST JUST FINE.  I WISH I COULD GET RID OF IT BUT THERE'S NO OPTION FOR THAT WHEN THE COMMENTS ARE WRITTEN IN A SEPARATE BOX.  SORRY.

Lovely 'fresh' looking card - all of the greens remind me of fresh mown grass (probably very lush following all of this rain!) I love how just the leaves are coloured.

Thank you for sharing your work with all of us at Crafty Boots Challenges.
