Meowy Christmas! Post Redo



Aghh! THANKS TO MY FRIEND CAROLYN I KNOW THAT THIS ORIGINAL POST WASN'T ALLOWING COMMENTS SO I HAVE FIXED THE PROBLEM. SOME HTML ERROR. Sorry I'm posting so late but I had to reaarange my post and move the joy card so I lost all of my sweet comments on it. :( I hope you have all had a great week so far and enjoyed all of the many previews out there, I'm so glad you have been checking in to see mine! This card I was really happy with the way it turned out for a few reasons. The stamp set is special because it was inspired by our cat Kitty Kitty, While I was having the baby my husband gave him away, he was sooo hairy the baby would have ended up with hair all in her mouth, yuck. He was also feisty and liked to attack anything that moved (including small children)! He has a good new home but I did love him. So it is an homage to Kitty Kitty. Also this cosmo paper is one of my new favorites. It's in my blog candy too! And I got to design this sketch for the MMSC this week who I happen to be sponsoring, so please go check that out. They have lots of fun happenings over there. Unfortunately with so many responsibilities and kids out the yin yang(LOL!)(does anybody really know what that is?I have a guess but if you know please do tell! LOL!) I just don't have the time to give it 100%. I stepped down and will miss it but I'm sure I'll be back to play along when I can! Links to the other gorgeous cards made by the cds dt are: Cassie

Very Cute cat card and great sketch card. I'm sorry about your cat. Can't imagine hubby giving your cat away while you are away. Glad it went to a good home then.

Awww, what a cute Kitty, Shawne! Your coloring is so cute, she does look like a feisty cat. Sorry to hear about your cat leaving your home. Wonderful job stitching too :) Thanks for taking some time out to play with us this week, xox ~Jeni

Hello Shawne - how lovely to see you playing along this week at MMSC - you will be greatly missed there but at least we can all come and see you gorgeous work here!! Love that cat - and was horrified to hear about your kitten - we have friends who had adopted 7 strays (the DH was not that fond of them) and the wife came home to find all 7 cats gone - they went to the vet NOT a good home!! AHHHH! Thank you for playing along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week, we look forward to seeing you whenever you can make it!!

Oh my goodness...again I can relate! LOL! We had a very beautiful, hairy white cat and not to long after our first was born I sent him to live with my BFF. He was such a sweetie and becoming neglected and I only felt right for him to go to a home he would be loved. He was 11 then and yes...he's 17 and still alive. She has taken marvelous care of him!! I hope your Kitty Kitty is some place special like that too! Beautiful card as always Shawne! Such a sweet surprise to see your name pop up! Thank you for joining us!!

Hey Shawne,

I haven't been commenting as much as I would like. I just wanted to say that I think your stamps look so fun to work with. I am hoping to be able to buy some soon. I have checked out the website and found so many things I want. This card is adorable. I love that paper too and I love what you have done with it. Beautiful!
