Happy Kitty ATC

I think I have posted this one before.  It reminds me of my sweet Jetta who sleeps curled up on my pillow at night.  Unlike this kitty who appears to have his own pillow, Jetta takes over the one I use and only leaves about 2 inches on one edge for me!  I love her anyway.  <3

Hi, Friends......

I made a batch of ATCs after my ATC BD celebration to send with prizes.  I stamped and heat embossed (one of my favorite techniques!!!) all over one of my bright purple and hot pink leftover Easter egg dye backgrounds and then cut it up for my ATCs.  FUN!!!  

Here's one I made with an adorable puffy sticker from a set that Christi Conley sent me with some sweet BD gifts and ATCs.  (THANKS, Christi!!!)  If I get motivated, I might post one or two of the others from this same background batch that have different images.

Products used include:
Winnie & Walter - In a Word: Happy Cutaway die
Inkadinkadoo - Umounted Doilies (Pinterest image, set is discontinued)
Prima - Doorway stamp
Prima - Messy stamp
Prima - Seamstress stamp
Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, and Hickory Smoke
Clear embossing powder
Canson - Mixed Media Paper Spiral Bound Notebook
Scrap of DCWV cardstock

Hope you enjoyed my ATC.  Thank you for stopping by today!!
