Pet's Love~~~February CG challenge

Hello dear Friends and Peeps,
as every month, on the 28th, here we are with the Calendar's Girls
challenge....this month's hostess is Kelly and -in her own word belows- 
these are her request for this month's challenge :

Our February Theme
** Show us how FURRY you are! **

Hee hee! It’s February, a month that symbolizes
LOVE. When thinking of a theme for this month’s
Challenge, I knew I wanted us to get happy with
the furry ones! My challenge for you this month is:

Show some LOVE to our furry animals! I love them great and small,
Short and tall – furry and fluffy! I am also
sure at one point we have all had a special pet that we have loved,
or maybe still do have a pet (or a bunch!) So let’s show them
some love! I challenge you to show us fur, your fluff, your waggin’ tails! The possibilities are endless – from doggies to cats, mice to turtles – in one case, a spider! (lil dj!!) LOL! Let’s bring some creativity to making a card (etc) with any image showing us a pet (including if you don’t actually own one!)

** For an extra part of the challenge, since it is February, please try to include the color RED on your card somewhere (coloring of the image, your DSP, cardstock, embellies – just a touch (or a lot!) of red.

Please post your cards to your blogs on February 28th ! I hope you LOVE
this challenge this month and LOVE creating with FUR and FLUFF!

Kelly (Miss February)

I chose to color a cute, simple cat image from AMUSE and color it
in shocking pink as I am sure my dahlin cat (Kahlua) would be if she could have it her way....she can be such a diva!! lol
BTW this is my first ever Amuse card....'bout time eh! lol
For the touch of red, I colored the kitty's collar in red and added red stickles to it to make it a tad more dazzzlingggg.....eheheh

For cretaing this card I used : all SU cardstock, 'Pets' d/p from DenverCraft UK,
grosgrain stitched ribbon from Michaels, red stickles, Memento black ink, SU markes,
faux lrg pearl, EK dimentional flower punch, LRG scalloped circles nesties and dimentionals.

What do you think?
Does my kitty look pretty in pink??.....I think she does....
I should have taken  a picture of my Kahlua to post here as well....
she's sleeping so contently now ,on top of a lil mat right by the furnace vent in the kitchen....she's a happy camper...wish I was asleep too!!

Thanks for stopping by....please make sure to visit all the other Calendar Girls (links are provided below) and check what they've been up to....
