Cat Couple Anniversary Card


This weekend my hubby and I are celebrating our 18th wedding anniversary. It's amazing how the years have flown by. I decided to make this Cat Couple Anniversary Card for him because our cats are the center of our lives. Before my hubby met me he never dreamed he would have a house cat, but he inherited one when we got married. Eventually we added another, and then another and ever since we've had three cats. We've been through some tough times when we lost our first and then our second kitty companions. At one point he said "NO more", it's too painful when they pass on, but I convinced him there are too many who need love to guard ourselves from the hurt. He was hesitant but now agrees with me. Here is our current kitty crew:

Waiting for dinner
To the back is our oldest, Sassy (she has pretty green eyes), in the middle is Mr. Dickens (the sweetest cat ever) and then we have Tazzy (our lovable and crazy cat). Since we were never able to have children, our kitties fill a big hole in our hearts and they provided wonderful entertainment.

This Cat Couple Anniversary Card is entered into the following challenges:
Card Supplies:
  • Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black and Real Red cardstock by Stampin' Up!
  • Stamps: Pussy Cat Luv digital image by Robyn's Fetish and Love sentiment stamp by Autumn Leaves.
  • Inks & Coloring: VersaMark ink, Silver embossing powder and Copic markers.
  • Other Stuff: Heat tool, white Sakura Gelly Roll pen, silver sequins, and stampin' dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

  3. Aw, that's so nice to see all of them together in one photo! It's so hard for me to capture our 3 all together, actually it's hard enough to catch just 2 together! Your card is so cute and I bet your hubby loved it! Happy Anniversary! Wishing you many more happy years together!

  4. Happy anniversary. How special this card is for you & your DH with your love of your kitty children. Isn't it amazing, how these pets come to fill our lives, while we think we are 'doing something good'? They give back so much more than they are given, I think. Anyway, it's a delightful card, and I hope your day was very special. TFS & Hugs.

  9. Adorable! Love the too cute image. Looks like something I'd make my hubby for an anniversary card. I hope you had a nice day. I know how hard it is to lose a pet, being totally devoted to our two Golden Retrievers and to other canine and feline family in the past. We have a grown son, but no grandchildren so I think we're in the same boat. I have said the same thing -- someone else needs our love and the good home we can give them. One look at that precious, loving face and your heart is stolen once again. Your kitty crew is adorable. Thanks for sharing your card in our QKR Stampede Dogs or Cats Challenge!
