You have until Monday 8PM EDT to complete the hop! We do have one announcement we want to be sure you get! We have decided to extend our Customer Favorites Contest! You now have until April 7th to add your submission to the Customer Favorites Contest for a chance to win a free set and the chance to be a guest designer for the release of “your” set! So leave us your ONE choice of favorite short Scripture, spiritual quote or spiritual sentiment, and YOUR submission might be in the next ODBD Customer Favorites Sets! Read all the details and leave your submission HERE! ***PLEASE take time to see the Scriptures already in our sets list so you don’t waste your one submission on one that’s already in a set!

Now… on to my creation:



I cut the scallop base using an electronic die cut system. Unfortunately I do not own any of the larger Spellbinders so I make due with what I have! The card stock already had a delightful embossed pattern to it BEFORE cutting! What a time saver. I cut a slightly smaller (5 inch) circle using some MME paper and layered a lace ruffle behind it. I then placed it on the card stock base with dimensional foam. I stamped, colored and cut my tabby image adding a scallop card stock base. The sentiment and image are both from ODBD's new release, Cat Sympathy. I love this set! And even though I am known for my St. Bernards, I originally was a cat owner. Well, actually they OWNED me! lol... I finished the card with a bit of white lace behind the image and a die cut flourish accented with mulberry roses. I added a tiny lady bug brad for interest! Miss Kitty had to be looking at something!!! Blessings...
