Hi Grandma!

My 2 1/2 year old granddaughter loves to call Grandma Verna now and then. She seldom says much but loves to listen to Grandma talk to her. I saw this cute image on the Loads of Love set by Penny Black and decided this would be a good valentine design to use for her. She also loves kitties so this I know she will like. I did not add any bling at all since she is a toddler.



I embossed a white panel with this Cuttlebug design from the Winter Wonderland collection. I just love that plaid design. I then rubbed some red ink onto the surface of it. And, I cut that panel with a die. I also used a die set to cut out the kitty image. I did several of the outer circle ring so that the insert of the image is recessed.

Dies used:
Die-Namics MFT-948 Single Stitch Line Circle Frames
Die-Namics MFT-914 Blueprints 29

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge-Cute
Crop Stop Linky Party #25
Mod Squad Blog Challenge-Heat or Dry Embossing

What a picture I have of the sweet little girl listening to you talk to here on the phone. This is perfect for her. I have a grand daughter that calls me too and know she is 10 and i still love the calls. The expression on the face of this kitty is so sweet. Thanks for joining me at the Mod Squad this week. Barb

That kitty is soooooo cute and it sure ties into the fact that your little granddaughter calls you. She will love it; it's a super card. I love the background. Is the stitching around it from a die. If it is where did ever get it; I've never seen a die that would do that.
