Purr-fection Always!

Happy Friday! Are you ready for Challenge #20 at DeliciousDoodles? We have a spectacular one and perfect for this winter season. Our theme for this week’s challenge is “All You Need is LOVE,” just in time for Valentine’s Day too.

We want to see any kind of project, but it must have the theme of LOVE. We would LOVE to see you use some of Teri’s beautiful images, but it is not necessary. If you do use a Delicious Doodles image, you can enter twice and you will be spotlighted next week.

For my Delicious Doodles inspiration I colored on of my favorite DD images, “Just Purr-fect.” I am a cat lover and this beautiful image spoke to me.

My art card is very clean and simple, or very clean and simple for me. “Just Purr-fect” was colored with Copics and then layered on red and white cardstock. The designer paper is from my stash, as is my one flower and ribbon. My one die cut is a butterfly from Spellbinder’s Les Papillion’s, another favorite die.  I used a little Stickles on the flower and butterfly. See, I told you…”clean and simple.”

I would like to enter “Just Purr-fect” in the following challenges:
Crafter's Digital Art Center - Anything Goes
Whimsical Designs – All about Love
The Paper Shelter – Anything Goes
Digi Stamps 4 Joy – Anything Goes
Craft Us Crazy – Love or Are You Seeing the Color Red
I also wanted to take a moment to let you know that Teri has created some wonderful new Gothic papers, frame, and corners. This is a sample of the Gothic Papers, just gorgeous, if I say so myself.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you join us at Delicious Doodles for Challenge #20. After you enter, head on over to our Facebook group and our CDAC group, and show us your little piece of art.

Stunning work as always Aletha. Your colouring is just so wonderful and inspirational as always too. I swear that little kitty is about to step out of the picture. (I would love it if he did but not sure if my two would be so happy!)
