A Cat For Janis

Hello.  Welcome.  A special hi and hello to UTs Hobby Time and Guadalupe.  So happy to have you along.  Hugz to all my followers, friends and lurkers.  Hugz.

Have you noticed that blogland's cat lovers are having a hop?   Janis has organised the fun and we are digging out out feline stash and showing it the light of day.  Many of my kittys are blinking and wondering who is disturbing their naps!!!   Some have been napping a long time......

So here's one for Janis.  I actually got myself organised and this one went in the post.  I have had the word, so I can share with you........



I used Sizzix movers and shapers Friends die and a docrafts checkered embossing folder.  The cat is an Anita's stamp, embossed, coloured and fussy cut.  The flowers are Die-namites Floral Vase, without the vases LOL.  I added a half pearl in the center of each.  I added a piece of black tape and some Seedless Preserves ink to make the 'wall' more dimensional.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Don't forget to check out the hop.  Lots of lovely cats of display.  Meow.  That is catz for Hugz

  4. I love this Anita's kitty! I am lucky to have this one in my stash - I have been collecting cat stamps ever since I started stamping, so that's over 10 years ago! But I still see so many cat stamps I don't have! There are so many out there! I really like all the die cuts you used too, especially the friends word!
