A purrrrfect Birthday

Quick card from me today - using a couple of dies:
I used:

- A6 white card blank

- SU 'Real Red' snippet, die cut using the Memory Box 'Grand Happy Birthday' die

- snippet of black card, die cut using Cheery Lyn's 'Kitty Kitty Meow Meow' die - which is a little family of four cats. I then separated the little row of kitties and put Mama and one of the kittens along the top of the sentiment strip and the other kitten down the bottom left of the card

That left Papa cat, and I couldn't bear to totally separate him from his family - so he's sitting inside the card now :) How sad, sitting here muttering to a die cut cat.

I would start worrying if the die cut cat answers you back........but great card!
Finally back in the land of the living Di - well internet land anyway - scheduled a post last Friday thinking I'd be able to link to the playground before the gates got locked...was in the middle of nowhere and internet playing silly beggars - not happy!!! But am back now to annoy you! x

Cat cards always go down well and this one is lovely - I'd say no cats were harmed in its making (nor left lonely!!)

Wonderful card, Di. I love the cat theme...What a brilliant idea.

This could be twisted to fit all pets. I can see a row of horses running across the bottom and one horse jumping over the Happy!

Or a puppy family...birds etc.

Oh my...my mind is racing, thinking of all the pets our friends have!

Wonderful!

Now Miss pull yourself together or I will send the toad round I was talking to in the garden. Wos busy filling the pond up from the hose pipe and wondered why it wos splashing everywhere. When I looked down there wos a hugmungous toad sat up in the shallows with the water hitting his head. The Doc came round the side of the house in time to hear me apologising to the toad which of course he couldn't see!
Hugs Mrs A.

Gorgeous die! One to add to me wish list. Love the colours you have used it really pops! I regularly talk out loud to myself when creating so you are not alone there. Hope you are feeling much better now Karen x

Gorgeous card Di, love the die cut kitties. I thought it was perfectly normal to talk to yourself while creating, helps sort out what goes where! Time to worry when you think things are answering you LOL, cathy x
