Have a purrrfect day...

Good morning all! I hope this past week has been good to you, and you were able to get some crafting done! I made this card for my best friend, who has a birthday coming up. (What with being a new Mom, she doesn't use the computer much, let alone reads my blog, so I'm pretty safe saying that!)

I'm entering this for the current Paper Smooches Sparks challenge: Cool Shades, and also for Moxie Fab Worlds challenge #49: Make your own background paper.

And the inside:

Here are the colors for the challenge:

My friend is a cat lover, so this stamp set just HAD to be used! Look at that cute little kitty with the goofy grin! He's too stinkin' adorable! I stamped him in grey and white, fussy cut the eyes and teeth from the white and adhered, then fussy cut the kitty out and popped him on some foam squares. I made the background paper by stamping the fish skeleton, mouse, and paw print randomly around the panel. I rounded the bottom corners, and for something different, I adhered the white panel off center to the card base.

That's all I have for now. It looks like it's going to be a decent day today. Cold, but decent. Perhaps the hubby and I will go see a movie. We are both sci-fi geeks, so I'm thinking that new Hansel and Gretel movie!

I hope your day is fabulous! Thanks for stopping by!
