All In A Row

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you are on your way to enjoying your weekend. I want to thank you all for the well wishes for Brock. He is feeling better, and they have discovered that he has some kind of bacterial infection in his stomach. Ten days of antibiotics should fix him back right as rain. It's just amazing that it took so long to get it diagnosed!

The card I wanted to share with you today is one I made earlier in the week for the Mothermark Tea Party. You can click on the link if you want to know the story behind it.


(click to enlarge)

This is a very simple card that I was making quick for the tea party. I printed out the Cats In A Row image and cut around it leaving the tails free to hang down over the red card base. The words were printed out at the same time as the image.

I left the whole background white so the card would go with the tea party story line, but I think this would be cool to have a window scene for the cats to be looking at. It could be a snowfall, a starry night, or birds in the trees...so many possibilities! If I were really ambitious I would make a viewmaster type card where the scene changed the seasons, or maybe just changed from day to night; wouldn't that be cool?

Well you know that Squigglefly has just released some new images today - and I've had the pleasure of seeing some of them already so I know you're going to be H A P P Y when you see what's new!

My goal today is to make a card for Stef's color challenge going on at the card universe Squigglefly group, and I have to write down all the names of those who entered the digi day challenges! I'm going to announce the winner of that a little later today!

I hope you have a terrific day, and thanks for looking!

You got that right. It wouldn't be a home without our Redcat.

What great news about Brock! (Doing a cartwheel here!)Ohhh I was so worried that it could be something more serious with how long it had been going on. Our prayers were definitely answered! :) Hopefully the meds will knock it right out!

Your card this morning looks like it could be a view at my house! We seem to be the favorite hang-out for all the stray cats in town! The way you placed their tails over the red looks FABULOUS and is such an eye-catcher! This is another one of my favorite images and you presented it in such a creative way!

Enjoy your day...I'm off to check out those new images before I have to get busy! ;)

Hugs~
