Kitty Valentine Card (and a facebook link)

Hello! I noticed that many people are finding it easier for them to follow blogs via facebook.  I decided to set up a facebook page for my blog here, for those of you who like to see cardmaking blogs in your facebook feed!  I hope this can be a good thing!  I hope you will “Like” it!

I am finally getting to my Valentines!  I am feeling very late with these!  I enjoyed coloring these cute kitties and then matching up some of the specialty pieces from a patterned paper pack to this sketch.


Supplies: Newton’s Nook Newtons Antics stamp set, Memento Black ink, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, Pebbles Yours Truly 6x6 paper pad, Avery Elle Wonky Stitched Rectangles dies, other items from my stash.


Special thanks to these challenges that really helped inspire this card!

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Sure are cute kitties and love how you've matched them up with the papers. Adorable card x Not sure about Facebook personally, I know it's much quicker and you get to a bigger audience etc but I am a fan of blogging, as I like to take time to comment and love to see how crafters make their cards, the step by steps, techniques etc. Time consuming to put cards etc on the blog and time consuming to comment but I also appreciate all the hard work x

Mac Mable, I agree, I am a big fan of blogging and commenting!!! At the moment, I am just posting the link to my blog on the facebook page. I am sure there are some people who read blogs but don’t have a blogger account, so they don’t comment or follow blogs. That is who I was thinking of when I made the facebook page. I recently saw some of the stamp manufacturers keeping the blog, but switching most everything over to facebook. We will see how it goes, but I thought it was worth a shot. Probably now, facebook will become unpopular and people will go on to the next best thing!

I just love those pretty papers with all the X's and O's and arrows! The gemstone hearts are looking so pretty too with those snuggly kitties :)

Oh they are adorable, so fun, I haven't started mine yet either and I need to get one to my daughter, this is a great start :) I miss so much that is posted on facebook, I think it is so much easier through blogger but I know some people that spend more time on facebook than I do :)
