Jitterbuggin (Look below for earlier posts from today)

It's time to Jitterbug! I'm just gettin this in almost at the last minute. One of these days I'll get ahead of the game. LOL This week at Jitterbuggin we had to follow the sketch, use black and white and accent with one color. OH yea, and use a punch. Man, that's alot!

I also entered this in Simon Says Stamp Challenge. We had to use dots! I do believe my background and my embossed circle help me qualify for that!

I used paper from DCWV cardstock and the glitter pack. I cut the little girl at 3" in shadow from A Child's Year, The flower was handmade. I cut the flower from Accent Essentials at 2 1/2", 2", 1 1/2" and 1", then ran them through my texture boutique and added a silvery brad. The love sentiment was cut from my Poutpourri Cartridge, then ran through my Xyron and added Glitter. The circle was cut with my punch and embossed with swiss dots.

A child's love for their pet is such a tender relationship. I'll never forget the pets I owned as a child. Still today I love animals. I'm a sucker for taking in any wandering or hurt little thang that comes my way. I took in a little kitten just over a week ago that was left to die. It didn't make it but I like to think I made those last hours a little better with warmth and love.

Unless I'm feeling really productive this should be my last post for today. Be sure to check out the two prior to this one too!
