Hi, There!

I am not in my comfort zone with animals.  I love coloring all those beautiful girlie girls with flowing hair and big eyes!  That is my comfort zone.  But now and then you have to push yourself, so I did and I must say I was pleasantly surprised.  This is a digital image from Ching-Chou Kuik.  Perhaps the reason I am happy with the turn out is because I modeled the image of the cat after my cat Sam! He is a ginger/white cat with a loving personality.  Being an indoor cat - he would love to be this cat "walking on the wild side"!!!  So here is my card and thanks for stopping by, till next time, Hugs ~ CaroleAnn
