Black Cats

July and Christmas are my two busiest periods of the year, and this July
seems to be busier than ever. Added to the usual frenzy has been a week
away to travel to Lismore for a nurses' reunion and a visit to my dear 
friend in Tenterfield. We have been friends for an amazing 54.5
years! I had a wonderful time, reliving old memories, 
while laughing and eating way too much.

One annual July event is my dear John's birthday, so this is the card I made for him.
We both love cats, and of course music, so I incorporated both into the card. I think 
this little kitty is singing 'Happy Birthday' to John. For the background, I sponged
a stencil with Distress Ink.

Such a happy little kitty! In retrospect, I think I should have added
some pink cardstock behind his ears?

Challenges I would like to enter:-
Crafty Catz #426 - 'Anything Goes, with option of using dies/punches'
Fussy and Fancy #216 - 'Pink and Green' (I hope turquoise/teal qualifies as 'green')

Products used 
Dies - Frantic Stamper Inc: Cute Kitten; Simply Dies Music Wave; Creative Expressions Isobel
Stencil - Ranger Dylusions It's RainingCats
Ink - Tim Holtz Distress Ink Peacock Feathers

 Hopefully I will be back soon with more cards, as I have been very busy with all the special occasions, plus lots of design team commissions. In the meantime, thank you for visiting my blog.
