Twisted Cheshire Cat

Pin It

Happy Tuesday, Crafty Stampers!

Today's card project was created for the current S2G challenge, Twisted Thursday, Cheshire Cat:

I followed their optional sketch, and used the optional stripes in my creation. For all the challenging deets, a look at the sketch I followed, AND a free download of this very same image, clicky HERE.

I colored my Cheshire Cat using Prisma's blended with Gamsol, added some DP, a couple of buttons, and some ribbon. I stamped my birthday sentiment on the same panel and finis! Easy-peasy-kitty-squeezy!

For all of the absolutely fabulous product info, check out the Card Recipe, below.

*Bawdy Alert:

Soooooooo, yesterday I stopped by Sheila's for a minute and found her certifiably insane crazy sister, Jill, babysitting Reid-the-Wild-Child.

I wasn't there five minutes when Reid burst through the kitchen door and asked, "Aunt Jill, what's that called when two people sleep in the same room and one is on top of the other?"

"Oh, well, that's called 'sexual intercourse' Reid." Jill answered ... before I could stick a dishcloth down her throat.

"Oh. Okay." Reid said, and ran back out to play.

Not three minutes later, the kitchen door burst open, and here comes the Wild-Child once again.

"Aunt Jill, it isn't called 'sexual intercourse' ... it's called 'bunk beds.' And Sean's Mom wants to talk to you. Right now."

Thanks so much for visiting ... hope your day is fantabulous!

I LOVE the Cheshire Cat. You really know how to put your colours and patterns together. If I tried, people would shield their eyes and scream at me to take it away! Perhaps it's time for me to take a class...
