Cats, Cat's, Cat's

Sitting at my craft desk is getting very difficult for me lately. I have been unable to craft due to the fact that my craft chair has been claimed by others. Namely Cali and Tex who have decided my craft chair is the best place in the house to take an afternoon siesta. What a predicament.

Since we are on the theme of cats with this entry I thought I would show you the birthday card I made for our other cats, Poppet and Bodie. We had them in England and decided the trip over here would be too stressful for them and so my lovely mother-in-law has taken them in and they in turn have taken her heart. This year they turn the grand age of 12 which is pretty good going. I think you times by 7 for cat years. I send them a card to show them I have not forgotten them. I know, I know they probably have no clue. But it makes me feel better and my MIL spoils them in this day for us too. This pic is pretty old but these days it's very hard to get one of them together.

The cardstock is Real Rust, Garden Green and More Mustard. I put the green through my cuttlebug. The images are from High Hopes. The jungle is stamped on vanilla as is the tiger but on another sheet and then cut out. I water colored both and distressed the edge of the jungle piece. The tiger is on dimensionals. Add ribbon and brads. Not forgetting the sentiment which is from SU So Many Scallops.

The making of this card also times nicely with a challenge on A Spoon Full Of Sugar which asks for a card with an animal on it so here is my entry for that also. I have just found these challenge sites and they are quite fun. I must post some links for you guys over on the side bar. In the meantime you can find this one here

Thanks for looking

Nic,what a fantastic card! the coloring is so bright and crisp. I love that you send a card to your cats and how wonderful that your mother in law took them in:) it's hard leaving things behind when you move to another country. I know about that all to well!
