Wicked Wednesday with Eekers Knitty Kitty

Woohoo!  Welcome back to Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge!  We had a little bit of a break and now we're back, refreshed and feeling crafty!  We're starting the year off with the super cute digis from Eekers Knitty Kitty with the theme of Cute and Cuddly.  I'm an animal lover so these are all very endearing to my heart.  The perfect sentiment I've used, along with the cute doggie paw print, is from Stampendous Dog Sayings.  Never fear, the cute little kitty paw print is from the equally clever Stampendous Cat Sayings.



Here's what I've used to create this ATC:

Copic Markers
Neenah Classic Crest Solar White
Green Cardstock by Bazzill Basics Paper
VersaFine Onxy Black Ink Pad by Tsukineko for Imagine Crafts
