It's Give Away Day With The Cat Whisperer

Hi everyone! Today is card give away day. If you'd like a chance to win this card along with an envelope so you can send it to someone, just leave a comment on this post and tomorrow around noon I'll have random.org pick a winner!

The card is for Mothermark's teaparty. You can read the story HERE, but the gist of it is that all of the tea partiers are going to Faith's house to celebrate all the comments she's made in everyone's gallery on Splitcoast Stampers. She's left almost 100,000! Can you believe that!?

Anyway, Faith wanted to send her cat Speedy to Orlando to take a class from Kittie, but she was having trouble getting Speedy to go! So, I called on a very special lady known only to a few - Clois Millan. Clois is a distant cousin to the famous dog whisperer Cesar Millan. Clois has the same amazing ability to communicate with animals as Cesar, only her specialty is cats! She has come with me to the party to get Speedy to straighten up and fly right!

I used the Squigglefly image That Crazy Old Cat Lady and colored her with Copic markers. The paper is from Pink Armadillo and the swirls are embossed - very cool paper!

I printed the sentiment out with my computer. I was thinking of making the inside say "I'm not one of them", but decided to leave that up to the person who wins the card. So, if you'd like the card - go comment!

Have a great day, and thanks for looking!

Oh do I ever need to get in touch with Clois; Batman is definitely getting too big for his britches in his old age! Teehee

When this image first came out, I immediately thought to myself; this could easily be me before long! Now we only have Batman inside the house, but somehow all the stray cats in town know there is a homeless shelter in our garage providing warmth and all the food they could possibly want! Twice the garage was turned into a maternity ward, not to mention the many times it was used as the Rendezvous Hotel! Now,luckily I am NOT the caretaker...that job belongs to my kids! But since Carson will be joining Sara at college soon, I guess I will become "That Crazy Old Cat Lady"!

Ok, to your card...
What a FABULOUS coloring job you did on this! Ohhh I wish mine looked half as good! It just amazes me how your blending is always so perfect! I LOVE the DP you used too! I think Hobby Lobby has this pad...hmmmm!

Hope everyone has an awesome day! :)
Hugs~
