Are You Kitten Me? - Color Dare #288

Did many cut panels in both the lagoon and peacock blues and shuffled them around until I was happy with the distribution of the colors.  Went to my stamp collection and found this adorable cat and that's where my mink came in.  This cat stamp reminds me so much of my son's cat "Thurman" and we are babysitting him for the next couple weeks.  Showing my husband the half put together card, Thurman jumped up on the bed and wanted to see it too...almost like he knew I was making this card of him.  Well, it was late and because I wasn't quite happy with my needed something more...and off to bed. 

Waking up the next morning, the circle panel was changed to a ball of yarn using different design paper so that changed my final shuffle of color distribution from last night and had to cut one more panel with a different design paper to coordinate with this change. Now to pull in some silver and a sentiment.  Apparently the mouse made his home in the ball of yarn, came out, and sat on Thurman's head to let him know not to play with the ball...Thurman says "Are You Kitten Me?"

This is a cute card - I love that ball of yarn behind that cat and love the sentiment. I'm not much on puns but that one is funny. Thank you for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

This is a very fun card! Turning the circle into a ball of yarn was a great idea! It’s so perfect with the cat. Love it!

Oh my - that cat looks SO unimpressed! The sentiment is PURR-fect for what Thurman might be thinking :) Great use of that ball of yarn. Love the way you pulled these colours together.
