Purr-fect - OSAAT #202

Hi and welcome back to my blog.  The weather yesterday was just wonderful - in the high 70's and no rain!  That's coming later today though. Not looking forward to the thunder and lightning!  I hate thunderstorms.  Yesterday, though I was able to get outside and do some work cleaning out flower beds and getting them ready for Spring planting.  Also pruned the rose bushes which I have never done before.  I hope I didn't kill them.   Just trying to decide now what to plant in all that open space.

On to my card.  Today is time for One Stitch at a Time.    The theme is ANYTHING GOES!  That leaves it wide open for your creative talents.  Our sponsor this week is the StitchyBear Digi Outlet with a prize of a 7 image digi pack.

 To win this prize you MUST use a digi from the StitchyBear Digital Outlet.  Please put an # after your name so we don't miss you.  You can still enter with a none StitchyBear Digi Outlet image but will be entered into a separate draw to win $3 to spend in our store.  So everyone can win something.  Now here's my card.  It was my turn to pick the image for our group to use.  Hahahaha!  Of course it has a cat in it.

  • Image - Delicious Doodles - Purr-fect

  8. Oh Maggie, great pic on that image. I sure do love it. It does remind me of the kitten I had when I was 5 years old (a very long time ago) - her name was Sandy and she was reddish-brown like you've coloured this one!! I love the flowers you've added and the rich backgroun you used too. What a wonderful card.
