HELLO ALL~~  Hope this is a start of a Fabulous weekend!!  It sure is for me~~ we did alot of yard work yesterday--pool closed for winter, removed summer flowers and added mums--sooo pretty, hopefully cut lawn for last time and raked leaves~~Whew I tired :D)))

Well today I have Super Exciting NEWS!!!  I was invited to be a GUEST on CYDA~~Thanks Joanne--Mwaahhhhh!!!
The theme for challenge #6 this week is:  A Recipe ~~~~~~  1 Circle, 2 Papers, and 3 Ribbons

I made an Easel Card Using BnW Kitty Love Image
As the theme states: My circle is the image-- my papers are BG Marrakech Pack -- my ribbons are AC red and flowered and raffia 
BnW Kitty Love was colored with Copics!!
Used colorless blender pen for soften the colors of her dress and the sitting pillow.
Her hat given texture with Souffle 3-D opaque pens--first colored with gray and then added lt green over top which gives it a sleek matte shine~~if that makes sense :D- LOL
Added gold ATYOU spica to leaves & tassels on pillow, her dress sash, hairtie, rim of kitty's bowl and flower on her hat. 
Diamond glaze gave shine to the pitcher :)
Here you can see the sparkle and shine!!
Inside of card
KINDNESS~~ from SU Heard from the Heart set
The "Love You much" was SU Well Scripted Set!
Used SU tag punches and glued to ribbon tail :)
