Little Furballs - Creative Card Chicks

Hi my friends. Happy Autumn. Well, it might be Autumn in other parts of the United States, but here in H Town summer is still hanging on. I hope none of you were affected by Tropical Storm Imelda. There was lots of flooding in and around H Town and a couple of my friends had water in their house. Luckily, my house is high off the street and ground so it stays dry.

Classes also got underway last Monday. I have two classes that I'm taking -- American Foundations (American History) and Research Methodology, Part 1. Last week was not bad - Introduction, but they are both gearing up already and I'll be having lots of work to do.

Today is the last day that we are supposed to be posting our September cards for the Creative Card Chicks swap. This month we didn't have a hostess as we usually do to send us a kit. Instead we got a theme given to us and then we had to create a card using that theme. For this one, we had a sketch to use.
Here is the card I created for the sketch.

This was an easy one since I didn't do any coloring on it at all. The stamp set I used was Stampin Up You Little Furball. I stamped them each with a different color - Chocolate Chip, Real Rust, and Basic Black. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set. I used SU Chocolate Chip for the base of the card and Real Rust for the mats. I just used a circle punch to punch the images out and popped them up with a Stampin Dimensional on the Real Rust mat. The designer paper is Authentique - Thankful collection and I finished it off with some gold bling. Easy, peasy this time. Hopefully, I'll have time to share a few more cards I've been working on. Not as much time now that classes have resumed. Have a great week and see you soon.

  1. Oh Maggie this is fabulous - love those 'furballs' and the way you have used the sketch.

  2. Maggie, this card is so cute... love those little kitties and your use of the sketch!

  3. I like the sketch and I LOVE the cats! What a cute sentiment to go with them. When I heard about the flooding in Houston I thought about you and remembered you live on a hill. Something to be grateful for.

  4. Oh they are so cute. What a great card. Thank you for purring along to play at SUYP Cats Challenges =^..^=
