Birthday Kitten

Happy Tuesday, peeps!  I am having a very lazy day's snow flurrying outside, I don't have any big plans and I am still in my jammies, LOL!  I have a birthday card this morning, no challenges, but I thought it was sweet enough to share.  I saw this card by Mary Fish recently and had a "duh" moment...why didn't I think of using the small stitched squares to make a quilt?!

A little girl in our church is turning one soon; she won't appreciate the card, but hopefully her parents will!  I used some scraps from a MME 6x6 pad called Nostalgia to create my background quilt squares, then stamped the kitten from Every Little Bit on some Soft Sky cardstock and fussy-cut it out:

I added some shading with a Soft Sky marker (and colored her nose too!), popped it up on a Stitched Shape circle and added a little banner with a birthday sentiment.  The "1st" is from SU's Little Numbers, and it was also cut from the same DSP pad.  I just love the soft subtle colors in these papers, especially made into a "quilt"!!! 

Thanks for popping in today--enjoy your day and be blessed!

My little kitten has lost another her smile is evenly-gapped on either side of those front teeth, LOL!
