Meow for Summer!

I think this might be my last card for summer...who am I kidding, I live in Hawaii...it's always summer! So here's my Saturday creation and the challenges I was inspired by for this one:
1. Bee Crafty - anything goes + digi image
2. Charisma Cardz Challenges - HOT HOT HOT!: I think my color scheme fits this :)
3. Crafty Creations Challenges  - 3 patterned papers, 2 ribbons, 1 charm
4. Delightful Inspiration  by Designed 2 Delight Digi Stamps - progressive free image challenge
5. Digi Doodle Shop’s Best - So Distressing: I distressed the edges of all the patterned papers
6. Double Delight Challenge - Summer Colors + D2D image
7. Drunken Stampers - Favourite Summer Song: one of my favorite songs is "Summer Sunshine" by the Corrs, so I was inspired to do a sunshiney color scheme and to you the "miss you" sentiment which is part of the song's lyrics
8. Fab ‘n’ Funky - 3 papers, 2 embellishments, 1 image: well, I interpreted this as 3 "patterned" papers and 2 "types of" embellishements (i.e., buttons and charm)
9. I{heart}2stamp - sketch
10. Papertake Weekly Challenge - 3-2-1: see above
11. Pollycraft Monday Challenge - 3 papers, 2 buttons, and 1 charm
12. Speedy the Cat’s Friends at Mark’s Finest Papers - Friendship

I did finish the inside of this one with a white rectangle with circle border punch at the bottom and strip of the bg paper at the top but I couldn't get a picture of it in focus, sorry!

Thanks for stopping by!
Aloha,

Love, Love, the bright colors! And such a cute kitty, looks so cute - maybe Malie needs a kitty friend to keep her happy when you leave for work, hmmm, just a thought. You know cats are pretty self sufficient so it wouldn't be any extra work for you! Talk to you later, Love, SAM aka MOM
