A Basket Full of Kitties




This card is for my sister's   Birthday and some of the buttons I selected for the card are from my late mothers old button box! Thought it would be a nice way of having a touch of Mom on the card. My sister is a great cat lover so she will appreciate  the image. I once found a little kitty and she took her in and kept her for years and years, until her time was over. She was a wonderfrul cat and  so is my sister !

Merging digital images is so much fun and you can make the most fabulous pictures! In this case there are two different images , Doodle Pantry's  Critter Top Cats  and a CDAC Progressive Challenge #14 image by 'Shelly's images' for the basket. Actually the Doodle Pantry image is one kitty and for this card it was added three time to the basket,  each one made smaller than the other. Delish isn't it. Well I am no expert on merging  and after giving Paint Net all kinds of verbal   abuse  I had to call in my buddy Dawn from Stamp 'n' Play and  the above is  the final product merged together by Dawn!Thank you Dawn you are always so willing to help and I appreciate it so much!

The Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge #21 is still on  and you get a free image just for participating , plus a prize if you win. Head on over and join the fun! The current challenge closes March 24th  with the winners announced March 25th. The theme is to 'just use a Doodle Pantry image'!
