Happy Thursday Everyone!!  I have been busy unpacking and trying to set up the house but occasionally I find a need a break and making cards with the few materials I have available to me is a welcome break.

I saw the color challenge at Splitcoaststampers on Tuesday and had to play along.  The CC371 color challenge was to use white, basic grey and sahara sand.  Since I had only dp with Vanilla, however, I altered the colors to include Sahara Sand, Basic Grey and Very Vanilla instead of white.

I made this card for my dd's who have been having a difficult time adjusting  since we moved and who really want a pet kitten. I planned to give this to them when we actually give them the kitten. The stamp set I used is called Cat Sympathy from Our Daily Bread Designs. The designer paper is Bella Bleu (retired Stampin Up Paper). The image is framed with the Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Rectangles.

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you are inspired in some way by my creation! 
Have a blessed day!!

Off to work I go.....
hugs and blessings,

This is beautiful Chris! Just love your coloring and the little heart with the paw prints is darling! I hope your kids get adjusted and make friends soon. It's tough moving away from friends - I had to do it too often growing up!
