Moving Along with the Times - Furry Friends

This week the theme is Furry Friends over at Moving Along with the Times. Please come along and join us.

My furry friends are my cats Gracie and Casey but until a few years ago I also had a Maine Coon called Maisie and this stamp looks exactly like her when she was a kitten. I didn't colour the image because it has so much detail in the drawing I didn't want to spoil it. It's a Clarity stamp and I cut it with one of the cheap dies that I bought from Joanna Sheen - there's no name on the packet. I typed Happy Birthday in red and cut that with a Spellbinders die. The backing paper is from Costco and that's matted on to Papermill red card.  The small card blank is by Craft UK and the red organza ribbon is from Joanna Sheen, as are the pearls.

It would have been our 49th wedding anniversary today so I'm thinking of all the happy memories. Thanks for visiting me and keeping my spirits up.

I'm entering my card in to the following challenges:

Artistic Impressions Challenges - Use a Sentiment, Anything Goes
Digi Sketch Challenge - All for the Animals
Creative Card Crew - Pearls
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes

  10. Hi Hazel, what a lovely image and a very pretty card. We have cats (currently 4 of the blighters) but they are all moggies - I'd always fancied a named cat and Maine Coons look just gorgeous.

    Sounds like you had a difficult day, I hope you got through it OK.
