Crazy Cat Embossed

Hi my crafty friends!  Today I've a card for the Splitcoaststampers Falliday Fest challenge "For The Love Of Pets".  The challenge is to create a card with your pet or favorite animal on it.  I've been a cat lover ever since I was little girl.  Sometimes my cats have this intense look on their face when they are watching spiders crawl across the floor.

I embossed the background with my paw print embossing folder and water colored the image.  OMG, I never knew how addicting water coloring could be, LOL!

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

Northwoods Moose

Hi my crafty friends! Today I'm sharing a card I gave my brother-in-law for his birthday! The image is a Northwoods Rubber Stamp. It's an older stamp I've had in my stash for years.

The image was colored using copic markers. The background was created with several pieces of scrap paper I had. And really the only embellishment is the staples I added at the bottom.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

Crazy Cats

Hi everyone!  Today's card was inspired by Di's Designs Challenge to use ribbon, lace and/or twine on my card and Through The Purple Haze Challenge to include a furry friends on my card.

The image is from the Crazy Cats Cling Rubber Stamps by Tim Holtz.

My card base is Kraft cardstock layered with White Cardstock and patterned paper from my stash.  The image was colored using watercolor crayons by Stampin' Up.  To embellish the card I added some twine, banners and pearls.

Pink Silhouette Cat

Hi everyone! I'm back with another clean and simple card for this month's Splitcoaststampers (SCS) cards for a cause and optional challenge C4AC43.

This month's cards for a cause featured organization is dear to my heart and the animal shelter I volunteer for.

Tri-County Humane Society

The Tri-County Humane Society (TCHS) operates an independent non-profit animal shelter in St. Cloud, MN. The TCHS has been providing quality services to the people and animals of Central Minnesota since 1974.
Some of their services include care for homeless animals, pet adoption, pet lost and found, and humane education. They also provide knowledgeable answers to questions regarding pet care, behavior and many other animal related issues.

They are looking for mostly general and thank you pet themed cards (no wild animals please).   Some birthday, sympathy and anniversary cards are welcome too.  Please leave the inside of the cards blank for the humane society to write personal messages.   Please include envelopes.  No plastic sleeves.

The shelter is able to use thank you cards year round and is very thankful for each and every card!  I've added a page at the top of my blog with this information as well.

The layout for this card was inspired by the below Try Stampin' On Tuesday sketch.

I'm also entering this card in the Show Us Your Pussies challenge to create anything featuring a cat.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
