  1. What a pretty card. Your coloring is wonderful.

  2. How pretty! Gorgeous coloring!

  3. Wow, the background looks great. And I love the kitty!!!

  4. The kitty in the window looking out is so neat! Like how you "tied" in the ribbon!

  5. So pretty. The shading gives
    a lot of depth to the picture.
    You can see the shutters coming
    away from the wall.
    Love it.
    thanks for sharing

  6. Sweet kitty peeking in the window. Love the blue shutters!!

  7. Beautiful card! Love that pretty Window Kitty stamp!Great color combo and a beautiful bow to finish it!

  8. I love all the blue, 2 layers of different colors of blue, the shutters, flower box and ribbon; it is my favorite color. Love it!! You colored so well it actually looks like a photo. I am happy you used a corner rounder; it seems like it has become a lost technique. That kitten is so cute!!!

  9. Beautifully colored. Love the orange and blue.

  10. SO, SO wonderful! Your coloring is top notch and your bow is top knot! Thank you so much for sharing your creativity this week!

  11. Lovely work.
    The design is
    so pretty as
    is the stamping.

  12. I love that kitty peeking out the window. A fantastic card design and awesome coloring on it too.

  13. So extremely adorable! The cat is so lovely in the window! Hugs, Robin

  14. My favorite color is blue so the 2 layering pieces, shutters, ribbon and flower box said 'I love it!' immediately. And that cat is adorable. You colored it so well one could think it was a photo. It is just darling!! I'm also glad you used the corner punch, too. I was beginning to think its use was outdated, but I think it adds to a card.

  15. Simply spectacular! I ❤️ the kitty in the window! I think he spies a bird or squirrel running around! Beautiful job! TFS!

  16. Love this sweet kitty in the window. Great colors and I like the bow.

  17. Such a sweet card! Love your color choices!
