Hi everyone! Thank you so much for all your well wishes for Chesney yesterday. The surgery went well, and there is no need for any second surgery which had been a concern. She was in a lot of pain when I saw her yesterday right after surgery, but I guess that's to be expected. Hopefully today she will be feeling much better!
Well today is the day that three new artists make their debut at Squigglefly! Paulette Rich Long, Nate Owens, and Diane Knott all have some wonderful images that are available today along with some fabulous new images from your long loved artists!
My card today uses Butterfly Buddy by Nate Owens. Is this not the cutest little cat? I love the expression on his face!

There's another one that Nate drew called Doxie Butterfly that would go with this one so well to make a cute scene. I colored this with Copic markers and then used chalk on the ground and sky. I then stamped some grass over the ground for some depth.
The edges of the designer paper were sponged with some Glorious Green ink, and the sentiment was computer generated in Kayleigh font (free HERE).
I glued some punched butterflies (from a Martha Stewart border punch) down and added some glitter. The flowers were some I pulled off of an artificial flower sprig and sponged on some green and blue ink. I punched a hole out of some designer paper and glued it to the center of the flowers. The greenery behind the flowers is from a Martha Stewart branch punch. I'm entering this in the Totally Papercrafts Challenge to make something cute and cuddly. I think this little kitty definitely qualifies! More challenges that I've seen I can enter this in are The Crafty pad - use a digi, Flutterby Wednesdays - open theme, and Phindy's place - use an animal.
Here's the inside of the card.
