Cruisin by with a Kit-Cat!

Cruisin ....... on a Sunday afternoon ....... (it's a sing-a-long!) :)

This month's hostess for the Kit-Cat Club is the lovely Susan ~ she sent us Cruiseabella to bring her thoughts of warm sunshine and off all the piles of snow she's getting!  As a Floridian, I have to say this is pretty much what it looks like here - tops down, wind in their hair, sunshine bursting through .....  sadly, I drive an SUV but a convertible sure sounds nice, lol!   Combined with the kit & bella, she asked us to make an unusual (different!) fold to our cards ...... this is my first attempt at a stair step card :)  Of course, mine looks more like a wonky escalator that you find at the airport *smile!*  But it was fun!

I paired the dsp Susan sent along with some Old Olive/Bermuda Bay cardstock I had on hand .... it went well with the green floral paper she sent and embellished it with the paper scraps left over from the unfortunate event.   I wanted to create a drive down a country road on a sunny day so I used my Taylored Expressions set to make a tree ~ small flowers cut with a punch to make little apple blossoms & added some tiny blue gemstones she sent along.   Cruiseabella is colored up with some prismas in a blue car, simple to match the overall patterns in the dsp ....  added some of the lovely fringe, a sentiment and here you go!
The sentiment is also from T.E. and reads "we are friends forever in sunshine and shade" :)



Thanks for stopping by on Superbowl Sunday - hugs to all!
