The back story: My mom's best friend has been like another mother to me and another grandmother to my boys. She recently had surgery to fix her pacemaker (God bless the doctors that can get in there with tiny screwdrivers) and now she's resting at home. I wanted to send her a smile so I figured a mischievous cat card would be appropriate because I thought she still had cats. (In fact, she and her husband were opera singers once and hence they named their cats after operas. One was Scaramouche and the other was Tosca.) But I've come to find out from my mom that there are no more cats, just a floppy eared dog now. But the gears were already going. I couldn't stop the card-making machine so I went ahead with the idea. Maybe it'll bring a laugh anyway.
I used the Birdsong paper stack by DCWV (love it-- lots of glittery pages), the Unity stamp Birdie Duet, the Ippity stamp set How Ya Doin', Lawn Fawn's Harold's ABCs and last, but not least, the adorable Maddie the cat stamp which you can find HERE. (The artist's blog, Understand Blue, is a hoot... you should check it out.)
Thanks for dropping by! I've been asked to provide a tutorial for my spin on tri-shutter cards so I'm working on it. Check back 'cause I hope to have it linked here soon. (Or maybe I'll make a new blog for it called Tri-Shutter Island.... Lol.)
