Cute kitty?

Hi everyone, where has the time gone again?, I seem to be racing myself to catch up on things, blogging is an example, I have cards to do in a short time and blogging has to go out of the window.  I am trying to keep up with comments, but only with the follower email subscriptions that people have links for on their blogs.  I find it so much easier, don't know about you, but the blogs I follow by email subscription come straight into my emails and I comment at the time, no more searching.

 Does anyone have an easier way of staying in touch with blogs quickly?  I love to see what's happening. I know there must be a way, because a couple of my followers, no sooner have I posted than they comment, which is what I would love to do.

That, believe it or not, was an apology to those who I haven't commented on their blogs for ages. Sorry.

Anyhow, here is my card for today, I was asked to make a card with brown and terracotta, I just had to add other colours and was fortunate to find these in my files, the digi papers are Owl Always Love Spring by Summertime Designs.  The cat is a freebie from Papercraft Inspiration.  The ribbon is from Fantastic Ribbons and the fab sentiment is from When the Scrap hits the Fun, which I coloured to match the card in PS. I did everything in PS as usual.

The background texture is printed directly onto the card and has been textured in PS, I thought it may be too heavy just a plain brown. I printed, then added the papers to the card, (I had added the name before printing) also added text to the terracotta paper saying wonderful sister and other lovely things, I added paper flowers from the same kit and glittered with Glamour Dust.  I added 3D clear gloss to the name.  I followed the Splitcoasters layout 97. whew!

I shall enter these blogs with this card
