How To Please A Cat

Good morning everyone! We had such a wonderful rain yesterday. It was badly needed too! I loved the cloudy day that kept the sun at bay.

Today I have a fun card to show you, and it was super fast to do because I used one of the Inside Outs from Squigglefly! This one is called Happy Cat by Chesney Young. If you aren't familiar with the Inside Outs line at Squigglefly; they come with a sentiment and image for the front and a sentiment and image for the inside so you have your whole card right there for you!

Here's the front of my card

I colored with Copic markers and used some of the fun cat eyes on the kitty. The paper in the background is some I made on my computer. Now, here's the inside

Isn't this just too fun? Sure to make a cat lover on your list smile!

Chesney recently sent me pictures of her cat to show me how the idea came to her for this set and I thought I'd share them with you

Well, today's the day I announce the winner of the blog candy I have to celebrate my two year blogaversary and if you're the lucky winner you'll have three packages of these cool cat eyes to use yourself! The winner of the blog candy chosen by is #11 which makes Terri Scott aka avidreader the winner of my blog candy!
Terri, please contact me at with your mailing address so I can send the blog candy your way!

Thanks to you all for the comments and for making the past two years of blogging so worth it! Have a fantastic day, and thanks for looking!

Holly Sweetie, I adore your card ! The little cat is so sweet and the background is fab (you are so clever !) I love the sentiment too, it is so so true ! Our little Sukie can't resist a box, she has to explore it and most of the time if it is big enough she ends up in it ! Hugs and smiles from Catherine

What a great idea for a card. I would of never thought. My cats do the same thing, anything that get on the floor paper bag, box, soda containers. They are so funny.. TFS

Hi Holly, It's been a while since I've been to visit your blog. I sure picked a good day. I love this card and of course the inspiration photos are adorable.

This card made me smile. Never knew a cat who didn't love to play in a box. Don't know a cat lover who wouldn't love this card.
