Napping Cats Card with Jane's Doodles' Cats at Play

Hey, folks!

Here to share a card I made with a fun stamp set I just got in the mail recently...

The back of the stamp set's packaging says Cats at Play.  I got mine from, where they have the set listed under the name A Cat's Life.  You can also get the stamp set from the creator herself, Jane's Doodles!

When I first saw this stamp set, I imagined making a scrapbook page about Humble [Napping Champion!] with this adorable cat image stamped in a rainbow of colours, fussy cut and attached in a playful arrangement, underneath his photo.  This is the card version of that idea!  The sentiment is a sticker from Pebbles, which I was saving for a cat project, of course. :o)

I'm entering my card in the current challenge over at The Paper Players:

Hope you have a crafty weekend!

Got the Sniffles Card with Taylored Expressions' Souper Soon

Hey, folks!

Here to share this card I made using the Souper Soon stamp & die combo from Taylored Expressions...

I really like this particular series of stamps with the smiling characters -- they're so cute!  I've collected three of the sets so far.
I also used TE's Cloud Border die -- that's a fun one!  The cute little heart is from their Stamp of Approval set of Little Bits dies.

I'm entering my card in TE's Share Joy Challenge #21:

I coloured and die-cut the characters a while back, and they were just waiting to be made into something!  I set out to make a card based on the sketch only, but by the time the card came together, I realized that I had used three of the colour challenge colours also.  Hoo-hoo! :o)

Hope you have a happy day!

Cat Sheriff Card for Our Adoption Anniversary!

Hello, folks!

It's been a long time since I last blogged!  A lot has happened since my last post.  

In November, we celebrated Humble's birthday and our adoption anniversary! :o)  We've been buddies since 2004, which is a big deal to me...over a decade!  I always get very emotional thinking back to the day I adopted him.
Unfortunately, I had to put him through a few vet visits in November and December, and we were on a bit of a roller coaster trying to get him onto a new medication.  He's doing well, thankfully -- just not super-jazzed about taking more medication, but that's understandable.  I made him a bunch of things for his birthday, our adoption anniversary and Christmas, including a stuffed toy that he actually plays with!  WOO-HOO!!  Makes me feel useful. :D  Here's the card I made to celebrate his adoption...

I think a lot of folks living with cats can agree: Cats are THE LAW.

The funny stamps are from Starving Artistamps, one of my favourite stamp companies.  I tried to colour the cat to look like Humble. :o)  He has a brown patch right in the middle of his belly that is really the most adorable thing ever.  EVER!
"WANTED: treats" was handwritten with marker. :o)
