Cat Thinking of You Card

Good day crafty friends! Today is the start of the 2019 Cat Lovers Blog Hop and I've made this Cat Thinking of You Card to play along. It features the Really... Kitty? stamp set by Unity Stamps and the image was colored with Copic markers. The kitty was colored to look like my first house cat that I had when I was in high school (photo below). She lived with me for twenty years before she crossed the rainbow bridge and she was the sweetest kitty I've ever had (so far). I wanted to use Fall colors and found the brown hearts paper from the Penelope paper pad and mixed it with the leaves from the Beautifully Brisk paper pad both by Bo Bunny. The sentiment is retired from the Wetlands stamp set by Stampin' Up!. For a little sparkle three sequins were added and that's it. The Cat Lovers Hop is going on through October 26th and you can find all the details HERE. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

  2. Sweet card. Thanks for sharing your photo of your "first" house cat too. You were lucky to have her 20 years. :) I lost one of my outdoor cats in May who was just 2 years old and was heart broken.

  23. Beautiful coloring, Andrea, and you made it look so much like your lovely first cat! It's hard to lose any fur baby after 20 years but I'm hoping you've had dozens more over the years since then. :-D It's great to see so many of us doing the Cat Lovers Hop.
