Gotta Go, Gotta Go.....


I've been having so much fun playing with the Tim Holt Crazy Cats lately, so I used the Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #343 to make these cards. I colored the image with Copics, and die cut it with a stitched circle, then added a SB die-cut scalloped circle for a mat. I added 3 tiny little mice, done with dies from Gina Marie Designs, and created the background from 2 snippets of dsp in my stash. The sentiment was stamped at my friend Mary Anne's house a while ago, but I have no idea who makes it. I cut off the bottom portion of the sentiment to make it fit, but the full sentiment is on this 2nd card....



This version was done with SB square and scalloped square dies along with  lime green cardstock and swiss dots dsp snippets from my stash. Here's the sketch I used:
 


I'm also entering these over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is "anything goes."

Thanks for checking in and I hope you have yourself a fantastic day!

What an expression on that crazy cat's face!! I can't decide if it's the mice that are saying gotta go or the cat - LOL. Great take on the sketch too Carol. Thanks so much for joining us over at Tuesday Morning Sketches!! :o)

These are awesome! I like the looks on these cats' faces. So expressive!

I got these stamps for my birthday but haven't used them yet. I have so many unfinished projects on my desk that I feel guilty playing with something new.
