Isn't that cat the cutest thing. My first cat, Samantha, was a black cat. She was a sweetie. I never needed an alarm clock back then because she used to wake me up in the morning by pulling my hair. She'd get a little mouthful of hair and tug. How you reacted to that last piece of information determines whether you're a cat person or not. I love the kitties and found it very endearing, if it creeped you out or you said you'd kill the furball, sadly, you are not a cat person. I love doggies too but this is a cat card so I'm gonna talk about cats. This week The Cat's Pajamas challenge TCPTUES75 is a sketch. So I grabbed one of my favorite Cat's Pajama stamps, it' called "Relax". I find this name very humorous, mostly because while I'm trying to type this one of my current kitties, Memphis (she's the princess and she's at least 17 years old) is sitting on my chest. She's very tiny, not even five pounds and she likes to park on me. She's very relaxed. So's my other cat Shamus. He's a meatloaf. He likes to keep his weight a secret but he's waaay over five pounds and I'm pretty glad he doesn't like to park on me. He does like to park next to me, sometimes right next to me, like this morning when I woke up with him right next to my face. Again I found it endearing. The poor boy doesn't like to miss a meal and so he stays close to me until I crank open that can. After that he spends his day relaxing on my favorite wing chair. Cats know how to relax and the kitty on this stamp is really chilling with his pink lemonade in his tube/pool. I got out this paper cause I think flip flops are perfect for it and I knew I had that neat little button that's hanging off the punched border and I just had to use it. And the colors would work for the Stampin' for the Weekend colour (I think they're British)challenge to use pink, teal and orange. The paper is Imaginisce, Summer Cool Banana Flip Flop. It's double sided so I used the backside for the sidebar. The kitty was stamped in Memento black on white card stock and colored with copics. The sand castle border is a EK Success punch and the bling is Darice self stick gems.
I really enjoyed making this card. It's got a cat, summer colors, flip flops and pink in it. What more could you want. And speaking of pink don't forget to click on the pink ribbon on my sidebar. It's a good thing.
