Card for Today and Jess the Kitty!

Woohhhh Its Friday again. Can you believe another week has just flown past! I am having a bit of a bad Panic Day today so it always helps me to create! I have made this easel card for 3 challenges
Friday Sketchers - Sketch
Sponsored by Simon Says Stamp

Just Magnolia - Vintage -
Sponsored by the Cutting Cafe

Daring Cardmakers - Layer it Up
Sponsored by Terri over at Delicious Doodles

For the layers I used Paper Piecing on Tilda. (Hope that counts)

2 x 6 by 6 Cards
Anna Griffin Papers
Tilda with Sledge Stamp
Distressed with Tim Holtz Pine Needles and Brushed Corduroy
Ribbon, flowers and pearls from stash
Leaves on roses from Marianne Designs Die
The rest of the colouring was done using my Promarkers. I then added glitter to make it sparkle.

I just thought I would share a couple of cute pics of Jess from last night.
We have a huge tree in the back garden which is a but of a nightmare but as you can see Jess loves it. I was told when I moved in I couldn't cut it down so I think I will be buying a leaf sucker upper in the next month for Autumn cause they will drive me crazy!!!!
Enjoy the rest of Friday all and Happy Weekend. Thanks for all the lovely comments I really do appreciate them.

Sorry your having a rough day Hazel, but your creativty is definitely not affected! Love this christmas card. Jess looks mighty comfy up there and yes you will need a leaf sucker. We are surrounded my trees and have to wade through the leaves from September on!! Love them when they are crunchy though lol.

Hi Hazel I am sorry to hear that you are feeling a bit panicky I know exactly what you mean as we more or less share the same problem. I hope you can fight it off better than me. I am loving your card, beautiful colours and wonderful image and Jess looks quite at home in that tree lol.
