Hi everyone! I hope you are doing well this week. Things are the same here for me - still computerless at work and it's still hot.
I have a card today that was so much fun to make. I made it for Sunday's Featured Stamper challenge on Splitcoast Stampers.

I went back to one of my favorite cats Fatty Cat by Jackie Matthews. I love this cat because he's easy to color and he's got such a cute expression on his face. I resisted using the cat eyes this time, but it was hard!
The cat is colored with Copic markers and cut out and then popped up on pop dots. The "For You" sentiment is from a clear Penny Black set. Getting the ribbon through the button was hard! I had to cut my ribbon in half and it ended up shredding, but I still liked the look; kind of like what ribbon looks like after the cat gets to it with those claws! But, in hindsight I would either pick a narrower ribbon or find a button with bigger holes. I think trying to enlarge the holes would only break the button.
The most fun thing making this card was all the white gel pen dots. That's something that adds so much to the look of the card, and it's fun to do too! Well, I hope you have some fun in your life today, and thanks for looking!
