Sunglasses Required!

Hello fellow crafters,
I hope you have had, or are still having, a good weekend. I baby-sat today...the dearest little baby boy who is almost 6 months old, and in 2 weeks time has to undergo heart surgery in Sydney. I usually have him for a few hours each Saturday or Sunday.

To say the card I have for you tonight is bright, would be an understatement, but then I did warn you in the post title! I love this little kitty playing with the butterflies just out of his reach.

I am sorry about the shadows on the photos...I took them near a window, and the sun was glaringly bright,  and no matter what angle I tried I could not eliminate the shadows.
