Moushka and Sancho




Well, you've met Lexy, my lovable lab....Now it's on to my two kitties, Moushka and Sancho. Moushka is the matriarch of the family. She is 10 years old and runs the show. She is MY cat... sleeps on my lap, in my arms in bed...well you get the picuture. I actually have my left arm on her right now as I try to type, lol...But when she wants something she really lets you know it. Her favorite thing is to knock items off of my nightstand until she has gotten my attention....this usually occurs during the middle of the night, of course. Her brother is Sancho, and he's just a big boy. who is about 4. He loves to play and will amuse himself with a jingle ball batting it around the house for hours. He's a lover, too, though. As you can see in the picture, they both like to be near Mom. This pose they are in inspired me to make the card. Moushka is the black one who's kind of hard to see on my lap....Sancho is on the back of the chair. He's being horribly unsociable, as he has his back to you. I apolgize. :)



My best friend and I decided to challenge ourselves to do the same sketch and color challenge at the same time. I've pictured both cards. Isn't it amazing how totally different two cards can turn out?






Anyway, my card was made with DCWV papers. The off-white sparkle paper was embossed with the tiny bubbles Cuttlebug folder, which I think creates the effect of it sparkling like diamonds. Luckily I have this great digi chair stamp from Mme Designs. I printed the chair image first on the shimmer blue and cut it out. I then printed the image again on the glitter blue paper and then cut only the heart pillow out. The cats were stamped black, cut out (yikes were they fun to cut out...not!), and then inked silver. The flowers were white, but I sprayed them with Tatered Angels glacier glimmer mist to transform them to blue.
