Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Bright & Sunny

It's the first Saturday of the month...so that means it's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge...and this month the theme is: 
'Bright & Sunny'

As usual, we have some fabulous prizes on offer from our lovely sponsors:


Prize - a $20 voucher

I've used a cat from the 'Hello Friend' set on my card...and made a little scene for him using some patterned papers (the spotty blue paper is from a Heidi Grace pad, and the rest are from the 'Hippity Hoppity' pad by We R Memory Keepers). I use my Nesties for the 'sun', and my Memory Box 'Puffy Clouds' die for the clouds. I stamped the cat on to the blue paper, so that I would have to do too much fussy cutting of the kitty's fur & whiskers...and paper pieced his balloons.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.

What a cool idea for the sun! That cat looks like he's really enjoying the ride. Hope the balloons don't pop.
