Cat's Birthday


I saw this stamp on a couple of other blogs and just thought it was the cutest thing. We have two cats so it appealed to me to make a card and try and make them look like our cats. I gave in to temptation and got it and it arrived in the mail the other day. Cute Card Thursday (the link is in the side bar) this week has a challenge called animal magic. Which is to make a card with an animal stamp as your main image. Seemed like a good opportunity to ink it up to me.

I actually made 2 cards one for our cats who will be celebrating their 1st birthdays next month and one for our cats that we left with my MIL. They have been with her over 5 years now so I guess they are not ours any more but I still like to send them a card on their birthday cause I miss them. The one pictured is for my MIL.

The latest craze I have noticed at the moment is to decorate the inside of the card a little also. I thought I would give this a try but I chose to keep it simple and not get carried away seen as the rest of the card was pretty minimal also.

Cardstock, ink and ribbon are Red Riding Hood. I used my top note die for the first time. The paw print is from TAC and the sentiment from SU.

Thanks for looking

Hugs
