Patiently Waiting Layout and Several Cards

Hi there,

I'm sharing another layout and several cards that I've worked on.
The plan is to upload them to The Scrapville Blog
for their Nov/Dec Layout Sketch.  But first I have to figure out where they are 

The layout sketch is below:

Here is the card sketch:

The layout I created:
This is Tom, our loveable cat.  He was strictly an indoor cat and only went outside on a leash.
Yes, we trained him on to be on a leash.  We had previously lost two cats to the foxes that
were roaming around and a lot of people lost their cats to them.  That wasn't going to happen
to us anymore!  
This photo shows Tom waiting at the door, just sitting there patiently.  He would sit
this way for a long time too!  His ears are turned back a bit because I was laughing
so hard while taking this photo, but he still stayed right where he was!!  Silly cat!!

Supplies used:
Paper: K&Co., DCWV
Recycled Corrugated Cardboard and Cardboard: Used for Die Cuts
Sizzix Flowers, Heart and Buckles Dies
Distress Stain: Tim Holtz
Perfect Pearls Mists
Folk Art Glitter Paint
Alcohol Inks: Adirondack
Big Shot
"Cats Rule" Sticker Tag: Daisy Hill
The recycled cardboard die cuts were stained and misted.  A knotted ribbon serves as
the center of the larger flower.
In threading the ribbon through the buckle, I pulled on the thread running through the center
of the ribbon and it scrunched!  Wow, this was pretty cool, so I scrunched it more and adhered the thread
under the ribbon.  I thought this was pretty cool.
The cat's paw sticker was adhered onto cardstock and trimmed.  A ribbon was knotted
at the top.
A few other buckles were added in the upper portion of the page with different ribbons.
The buckles were stained and misted also.
I found this hearts/paws paper and knew this is what would look great on my page!
Isn't it cute?
A better view of the glitter paint.  I used a strip of paper with holes in it and a
paintbrush to dab the paint randomly over the paper.
 Another shot of the cardboard trio grouping.

Here are my cards.  I started out making only one card, but then realized, why not make 
more.  I completed 5 cards with 2 sheets of 12x12 papers.  Pretty cool!
So why not show you the variety.  :)

I cut out the "window" with my Nestabilities die.  There were two dies cut because I adhered
the pp to the front of the card beforehand.  So, the white cardstock became the inside of
the card, which was stamped with this cute little vase of flowers along with the sentiment.
A border punch was used on the bottom strip and ribbon added.  The flowers are from a lei
purchased at a discount store.  The buttons were attached with embroidery floss.

The white die cut was rubbed lightly with chalk, the sentiment added and finally it
was misted.  The lace rosette was hand made with a cute button added in the center.

For this card the sentiment was stamped onto the pp inside the card.  The die cuts are from
Nancy O'Dell, which were rubbed lightly with chalk to give them some color.  A paper piercer
made the line of the butterfly.

This die cut was adhered with pop dots.  A different border punch was used on the
bottom strip of paper.  Knotted rick rack are the centers of the flowers and looped ribbon
under the flowers serving as leaves.

The inside of the card was kept white, so the die cut of pp would show better.
Ribbon and rick rack were added at the bottom.  I layered several flowers and used
embroidery floss to affix the button.

Thanks for looking!
Hope you enjoyed your visit!
Libby  :)
