Cat Card

Here I am with the last installment of things I had been waiting to post about. Finally I am caught up with all my stuff I had backed up to tell you about. This is the last thing I had on my 'put on blog' list. Now I guess I need to get in my craft room and start making some more stuff to show you.

This card was for the last swap I hosted on Gabby's group (Handmade Cards With Love). I am so very sorry the group is closing. We just didn't have enough members to keep going though. I was late with this one as my mojo has been in a state of on again off again. I just don't seem to be able to get my head straight. With this card done I am ready to say goodbye. I am all caught up on the swaps I owed to this group. I will miss checking how my friends are doing but a few of them are on another group I'm in so I guess life goes on. The swap was a cat or dog swap. You had to make the card with your preferred pet on it. I am hoping to get a kitty very soon so it seemed only right that I should put one on my card.

the cardstock I used is Purely pomegranate. The paper was in my scrap drawer. I used SU's 'The Cat's Meow' stamp set. The large eyelets are also SU as is the Wild Wasabi Ribbon. A fairly simple card. I am thankful for my Crop-a-dile it has been a life saver. I never used to like using eyelets before as they were so fiddly and noisy to use but it makes things so much easier.

I recently bought some new stamps from High Hopes ( after seeing them used on a couple of blogs. These stamps are just the cutest. I hope to ink them up real soon.

Thanks for stopping by
