My Mummy Loves His Cat

Hello.  Welcome.  The ancient Egyptians were known for their respect and esteem for cats.   Some great information about this at Ancient Egypt Online.  So I decided to make a card using one of my favourite Sizzix dies - Movable Mummy, sadly now retired bwahahahahaha

He's so cool.  I used some paper that I thought looked a bit like sand and filled the sky with cats.  That's also some patterned paper I have had in the stash for, well, a while.  All the cat stash seeing the light of day.  Thanks Janis. 

I cut my mummy from grey card, added some googly eyes and assembled him with mini brads.  The cat is also a Sizzix die cut.  I added some white pen details and gave him a bandage for his tail.  The fish hanging from Mummy's bandage is a Dress It Up button.  Only Mummy's straight leg is glued down.  By grabbing the toe of his other leg you can move him about.  It's quite fun jiggling the fish in front of the cat.   Meowww.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  3. heehee Love this cuteness! Is kitty's tail bandaged? Poor thing. Not sure I want a fish from that mummy ... hope kitty plays it smart!

  4. I LOVE the cat filled sky and the bandage on the kitty tail!!

  5. Wow, what a fabulous card! Love those subtle cat faces in the background and that moveable mummy die cut is AMAZING!! I don't think I've ever seen that before. Adding a bandage to the kitty's tail is the perfect touch!

  13. I love your humor in art today, Gail! Genius!

  14. What a hilarious ide. Fun fun and the catis sweet with his
    grey tale. He is not even scarred by the mummy.

  15. Absolute genius!!!! What an ideal combo for Halloween.....a cat and an Egyptian mummy. Yes. Totally love all the thought you put into every single detail of this card. The kinda spooky sky filled with cats in the clouds is so cool. That moveable mummy dangling the fish down for the kitty is brilliant!!! I think the cat must have gotten tangled in some of the mummy's wraps and that's why she has them on her tail. Really LOVE this creative and fun card!!!
    Thanks SO much for being a part of the Cat Lovers Hop!!!!
