Valentine #2

Good afternoon. I hope you had a good weekend. Mine was so-so. I somehow hurt my ankle several weeks ago, and sometimes the pain is so excruciating that I just have to keep it propped up. If I had medical insurance, I sure would have been to the doctor by now. But since I don't, I just try to keep it elevated and take massive amounts of ibuprofen (which doesn't help my stomach, but that's another story for another day). And on top of that, I awoke every morning, starting Friday, with a migraine. I was up at 4 a.m. this morning, standing in the shower with the water as hot as I could stand it, just letting it rain down on my head, trying to ease the pain.

Anyway, here is my valentine #2:

This is a matchbook card. I really like this little Cool Cat from My Paper Moon. He's very versatile, and I have small stamps that fit inside the heart, also. He makes a great card for birthdays, congratulations, and more.

I stamped him on watercolor paper, then colored him with Copic markers. I ran some red ink around the edges. I was going to watercolor him (which is why I stamped him on watercolor paper in the first place), but I liked the way he turned out with the Copics. I matted that onto a piece of black cardstock.

I stamped the heart a 2nd time, colored it, covered it with stickles, cut it out, and put it in place with pop dots. The gold accents were cut with the Cricut, and the black ribbon with white dots was glued to the bottom, covering the staple. I stamped 3 small hearts, colored them, and applied stickles.

I hope you like my cool valentine cat as much as I do.
