Smile on a Fun Friday!

I know y'all probably think I dropped off the face of the earth - if you even knew I hadn't posted since Monday!  I'd love to say I was so busy making cards or taking a trip to Tahiti - however, have just been very busy with yard work, gardening, and life in general!  Sometimes things like that get in the way of what we'd rather be doing.

Since it's Friday and I haven't done a Fun Friday in a long time, thought I'd throw this one out there to give everyone a big SMILE!  Ever since I first saw this image by Mo's Digital Pencil I knew I had to have it.  It just gives me a little reminder of what I'd like to do to Jim on occasion!  LOL!!!  What can I say!  Hey, I even took my time coloring on this and thought it came out pretty good on that part.  Maybe I need to have a little more patience (the actual name of the image) and take more time when I color.  I'm more of a "git 'er done" type person though.  Oh well.............I used a scrap piece of patterned paper that was in the SSS kit and look at that stitching!!!!!!!!!  Yikes!  It's almost in a straight seam!  Woot!  The twine bow looks a little funky but it was just laying the wrong way when I snapped the photo.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets) and also at Sarah Hurley 365 (real or faux stitching)  This is a new challenge to me and I'm so glad I found it.  Take a peek at all the DT cards!  they're great.

So.......it's Friday and everyone can spend the whole weekend smiling now!!!

Thanks for stopping by........
Lynn

OMG this is CUTE!! Your coloring is spot on with this image, and the stitching looks great with that striped dsp! As soon as I saw this, it reminded me of that movie "the Heat" with Sandra Bullock where she was holding a giant cat that looked just like this! Too funny :)

Lynn McAuley said...

Yes, I will smile, Lynn! This is so precious!

How sweet this is- hahaha Jim better look out, huh? I love your coloring- it is soooo amazing! Hope you get a little rain so you get lots of goodies from your garden!

Jessi Fogan said...

This is so fun & cute! And boy, Mo needs to draw one with you & Jim, because THAT would be an image I'd use all the time :)

Monica said...

Oooh so cute. The girl seems quite happy, not sure of the poor cat, though.

Nancy in Iowa said...

Just stole a moment at work to pop in just because I needed a bit of sunshine as my marathon of work days begins....This card was the perfect solution! It truly made me smile! Now I must get back to college seniors....Come on May 19!!!! I need me some Bubble Time.
Mums the word....I should NOT be over her peaking at your lovely cards.... shhhhhh.

MaryH said...

Did I ever smile at this cutie. It is SO you! I think we all feel this way about our Significant other from time to time (and probably they do as well!). Your coloring is fab, love the stitching too. Looked straight to my eyes. The stripe dp was wonderful with this perky lil gal & her kitty. Good job. I'm behind again too, so I'm off to enjoy those other posts here that I have missed. See ya later, TFS & Hugs. Happy Easter too! LOL

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Hee hee I love this stamped design. It evokes so much happy imagery. Cats can be so tolerant of the whims of little kids. Great job on those straight seams! Woot!

Joan Ervin said...

Isn't that image adorable...you did an awesome job of coloring, Lynn, and I looove all that straight stitching!!!!!

Claire Newcombe said...

Such a cute card, I love that you havn't used too many colours too.
the stitching finishes it perfectly.
Thank you for joining us at the Sarah Hurley challenge.

Margaret said...

LOL! Poor Jim! She reminds me of me when I was little-always dragging a cat around! You did an amazing job coloring this and the stitching looks awesome too!!
