Birthday Card Using Cricut Artiste Cartridge, CTMH Pathfinding Paper and DS4J Kitty Plays Catch

Hello friends.  I am back again.  It has cooled down a little; but will be warming up again over the next few days, in Southern CA.  My oldest son and his family left Saturday; from their visit with us.  We kept the two teen grandkids (Kiley 14 and Trey 16) for a week; while their parents attended a special Missionary training class. They are on the road for the next two years; raising church support (Deputation) for their life in Argentina as Missionaries.  I am so proud of them. It is such a tough job to do.  We had a lot of fun with them during their visit.

It is time for another fabulous challenge at DT Project for Digi Stamps 4Joy  - Challenge 104 - Preparing for the Holidays/Fall.  I love fall; so this one was a fun one to create.  Be sure to create something; preferably with a DS4J image; so you can qualify for a chance to win the FREE $10 gift certificate.  DS4J has over 1,000 images; so I am sure there is something there you will love!  I have a hard time deciding which ones to buy/use.  They are incredible! 

I chose to use this cutie - DS4J Kitty Plays Catch.  I love cats and it is so adorable!  I hope you enjoy my card I have created with it.  Be sure to check out all the fabulous creations by the DT.  Don't forget about the DS4J Monthly Christmas Card Challenge. You receive a FREE digi each month; so be sure to request the free digi, to create something for Christmas and play along each month.  We only have the rest of November and December to get those Christmas cards created!
