Hi, Friend

 Whew!  It's a hot one!  I hate to spend time indoors during the summer months, but the humidity today is a killer!  I'm enjoying the air conditioning and spending time doing crafty stuff.

I made this card for a friend who just adopted a kitty.  I'm just a little jealous!  I've been toying with the idea of doing the same.  I just hate to upset our old Sunny cat.  Anyway, I can enjoy visiting with her new, little fur baby for now.

Here is the card:

I was inspired by this sketch:

I paper pieced the image using Doodlebug papers, then colored and shaded with Prismacolor pencils.
The square frame and rectangle card front are cut from SSS dies.  The image and sentiment are also from the SSS sets, You Are Pawsome and Furry Cat and Box.

This is my first time playing along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  Check out the other entries here!

Enjoy your day!
