QKR Stampede Challenge # 152 - Day at the Beach

Hi, all!

Wouldn't you love to be at the beach somewhere right now?  I haven't been to a beach since I was a tiny little girl!  But I can still remember the smell of the water & sand!   The challenge theme for this week at QKR Stampede is "Day at the Beach" and I wanted to do digi # 19901 Lemonade cat from Eureka Stamps.

I LOVE this cat!  He has such a great attitude!   I have a small confession to make, however.....As I started to color him, I debated on black or grey for the bottoms of his feet & decided I HATED the black so I re-colored him with grey feet which I loved.  Not looking at the theme list, (and I DO know better) I went ahead & plopped him on a grassy hill to drink his lemonade.  I took a photo of the card & was all set to post it when I noticed the theme was Day at the Beach.....NOT day in the woods!  ha ha  So, I started over & used the black feet anyway.  The sand is from a jar of something strange I bought at convention last year & have never used.  I hope it all stays together when the card is mailed & the poor recipient doesn't end up with an envelope of sand!

Enjoy your weekend!!


  1. Sherri, you've never met a cat you didn't just love. You showed this guy a lot of love is this fabulously cute, cute card!!! Love it!!!

  2. Hi Sherri, Fabulous beach scene, hope you kept the original wood one lol.
    I pinch my DH sandpaper to make sand, does not come off..
    Hugs pam x

  3. I love this image and you have colored him beautifully. I almost always make my cats look like Garfield. I love him in grey & black. So glad to have you on the QKR team. Karal

  4. Oh, he looks so happy and content! What a great beach scene! Love the sand. It looks real. Too funny about plopping him down in the wrong scene! Guess you got carried away coloring your cute kitty. He'd be adorable wherever he goes!
