Thankful Cat

On this American Thanksgiving Day, a frosty window scene with a grateful cat perched on the sill seems like a good choice for today’s blog! 

Kittie Caracciolo’s blog is a feast for the eyes and the paper crafting mind.  It’s also a wonderful source for excellent tutorials which clearly show how she makes such magical works.  In one of her recent blogs, she noted that she had over thirty window projects listed!  I decided to start off with a simple window frame I had in my stash but hadn’t yet used.  Kittie’s right:  they really are fun to do . . .

The scene through the window features the last of the coloring exercises from my Memory Box class with Dave Brethauer – it seemed tailor-made for use with the window die.  A fanciful bow, a cozy cat grateful to be inside rather than out, and we have ourselves a sweet little scene!

Next project:  a door die I have in my stash and also have never used.  Stay tuned!
