Lucky Kitties

Yes, I'm fully aware that St. Paddy's Day has come and gone, but those who know me well, know that I'm notoriously late with holidays.  Heck, at my house Christmas has barely left the building and I'm just beginning to decorate for Easter (and no, I'm not Eastern Orthodox).  BUT fortunately, I'm just squeaking under the wire for the "Lucky Kitty" challenge at SUYP (cats only Challenge Blog.  Yea, ME!  This motley crew is called Nine Lives Kitties by Sandra Caldwell (babycakesdnd).  The Luck of the Irish digi paper is from AMBillustrations.  I've added some green burlap from DCWV, glitter 4 leaf clovers and a bit of plaid ribbon from my stash for texture.

Here's a closeup of the adorable image. They're colored with Copics with a bit of fur detail from Prismacolor pencils.  And why are they lucky?

They've got each other's backs.  Who needs nine lives when you're part of the Irish "Meow"fia family?  Well, maybe it would come in handy.  LOL

I'm also adding this to the DL.Art April Linky challenge, the DL.Art Thankful Thursday ATG challenge, Open Minded Crafting Fun Luck/ St. Patrick's Day and the Simon Says Wednesday ATG challenge.
