Another Quickie Post for the Last Day of the Cat Lover's Hop

WooHoo!  I did another card for the final day of the Cat Lover's Hop at Her Peaceful Garden.  My eyeballs are going buggie from the last few days of intense coloring (not just for the Hop) but I saw a link on Fiki's Blog for a freebie called Happy Fall Cat from Gerda Steiner Designs in Celebration of National (World?) Cat Day (I've read both, but finally looked it up, and today is NATIONAL CAT DAY.  WORLD CAT DAY is August 8th but certainly cats are such awesome creatures that they deserve more than ONE DAY.  In fact, once a month sounds good to me.)  So there ya go!  The digi was so cute, I just had to color it up immediately, using the png version on a Fall background from the Gecko Galz Fall into Nature Collage sheet.  I love using collage and digi papers with my digital stamps.  I've colored Happy Fall Cat with Copics with a little fur detail from Prismacolor pencils and used a rub-on from MAMBI for the sentiment.

Thanks to Janis at Her Peaceful Garden for organizing this fabulous Hop and to all the wonderful sponsors and participants.  It has truly been amazing.  And please don't forget to comment on my first project post of the day HERE for a chance to win my namesake Donna Kitty digi stamp by Sandra Caldwell

I'm also entering this (just under the wire) in the Gecko Galz October Fall into Autumn Customer challenge, and the Gerda Steiner Share your Designs Challenge.


  1. This is just beautiful! I also downloaded the digi but haven't had a chance to color it yet. Your fall background couldn't be more perfect.

  4. CUTE! I thought I recognized that cat. I just downloaded it too and I don't have a printer! I can put it on a stick and use my student ID to print it at work so I'm excited to use it later.
