Kid's Valentine

I have some grandchildren who usually like a Valentine from Grandpa and Grandma so today I decided to try and make one the little ones might relate to. I love the Newton's Nook Designs so I chose some of their images and a sentiment from the set Newton's Antics.


Most of the kitties on our farm are the striped kind so I tried to make him look more realistic to our cats. I used Bic Mark-It alcohol ink markers to color the image. I then cut out the design with a Marvy Heart shaped punch. I placed that over a die cut heart design from Cheery Lynn Designs. This was then placed on a pattern paper panel from Gina K. Designs which was layered to black and then added to the base card of white card stock. The panel layers are also from a die cut by Cheery Lynn Designs. The card was finished then by the addition of a black and red chiffon ribbon bow.


Cheery Lynn Dies used:
Card Maker's Stacker Nesting Dies ST 014
Heart Within My Heart DL178

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Well, it sounds like some snow moving into our region again and maybe some strong winds. So far it is just really overcast but the temperature is not too bad as we hit about 30 degrees above zero today. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday.

God bless,
Verna

Brrr! Yesterday we didn't even make it into the 50s! Being thin-blooded these days, we were cold with the high winds! LOL we were down into the 20s last night and expect the same tonight. Yes, we are wimps! Your card is darling, Verna, and the colors are romantic! Smile. Great job with the coloring on your kitty! How many farm kitties do you have? Do they spend the night in a barn? Thanks for sharing your delightful card, and hope you don't have problems from the winds and snow! Hugs, de
