Cat Crazy







For those of you who know me well, know how much I love animals... especially cats... especially my cat for sure! My siamese cat, Bailey, is 18 years old; knows all my secrets and is a great snuggler. I'm also sucker for all those forwarded e-mails with cute animals pictures of kittens curled up in sneakers, etc. Anyway, maybe it's my love of cats that prompted me to make so many cat cards... or maybe I was just too darn lazy to stamp anything else to colour...... (don't tell them Bailey, hee, hee).

The challenge after colouring & sorting through papers was: what sentiments to use for this cat & mouse team??? A while ago I bought a clear set of Technique Tuesday, "Loving Words by Ali Edwards"... which I used on the green & the blue. With the pink card I went with a Penny Black friendship quote. All images were cut out with Spellbinder Nestibilities and there's a big mish-mash of papers, which I will list below. I will just list the embellishments as best I can to include all 4, but if there is something you are wondering about... please leave me a comment and I will get back to you with an answer.
Well that's it for me on this Amazing Sunday - what great weather! (yeahhhh!!!) Time to clean the house (booooooo).
