Introducing Sassy Cats from Skipping Stones Design!

Good Morning and Happy Tuesday! 

Welcome to Sketch Challenge 115 and the release of Sassy Cats 2! If you just came from JoAnn's blog, you are in the right place. If you just happened along my blog today, start at the beginning of the hop at Skipping Stones Design. The entire hop order is there and you can hop from blog to blog with ease.

Well, due to my recent travel schedule, I do have a card to share showcasing Sassy Cats, but it does not follow the sketch.  Sorry Kazan! 

Sassy Cats is one of those hilarious sets that Skipping Stones is famous for!  I couldn't resist using this kitty image paired with one of the many funny sentiments included in this set.   You see, I have always been told by my helpful friends and family that if you have to ask, that's your answer (LOL)!!  

I stamped the rear facing kitty on white cardstock with black Memento ink and colored him in with Copics.  I then drew a frame with some zig-zags around the image and mounted in to a chartreuse rectangle. I stamped the sentiment on a word bubble sticker from the Paper Studio and adhered it to the card.  The arrow is a piece of chipboard that I covered in cardstock and also added a hand drawn border. The patterned paper is from KI Memories.The completed card front was then adhered to a card base on kraft cardstock. 

Here's another look: 

If you would like to play along with this week's sketch challenge (and who wouldn't love to win some free stamps??), just upload your take on this week's sketch to the Skipping Stones blog.  Here is the sketch to use for this week's challenge:
