Newton Wanted Card

Happy Monday! Last week we rescued a feral kitten from our backyard and took her to our veterinarian for care. The kitten was spotted early in November on the other side of our neighborhood with siblings. However, nobody did anything to help them. At the time they weren't in my yard and even though I offered to help nobody responded. So, when fate brought this little one to our yard we knew we had to rescue her. It took us five days and we finally trapped her last Friday. We tried finding a local shelter to take her but many of them are at capacity and wouldn't take a feral kitten. To help with her medical expenses we have set up a Go Fund Me account. The hardest part about rescuing animals is the cost involved. If you feel like contributing every little bit helps!

This Newton Wanted Card was made for one of our neighbors who gave us a donation. The inside is stamped "for being awesome!" The stamp set is by Newton's Nook and it's called Newton Rides West and the matching dies were used to die cut the stars. Copic markers were used to color the image. The Pioneer plaid paper is by Authentique and cardstock colors include: Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze and Hello Honey all by Stampin' Up! That's it! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

This Newton Wanted Card is entered into the following challenges:
  • Lil Patch of Crafty Friends: Anything Goes
  • Show Us Your Pussies: Furrything Goes
  • As You Like It: Favourite Animal
    • Cats have been my favourite animal for as long as I can remember. I think it's because they resemble my personality... perfectly happy being alone with occasional social interaction.
Below is a picture of the rescued kitten we named Daisy. She is getting used to being inside, it's only been two days since we picked her up from the veterinarians. She is still really shy and doesn't like being picked up, but she isn't hiding from us and she is starting to play with toys. We are just happy she is safe and warm!

  1. What a super cute card - really lovely and I like the clever wording :-D
    Thank you for purring along to play at SUYP Cats Challenges :-)

    I hope the little kitten does well. It's a shame there are so many without homes. Here in Greece the situation is very poor :-( Thank you for giving her a chance. x
