Now isn't this little kitty just the most caring little guy you've ever seen? Just popping in to check on a friend. I made this card to pop in and check on a friend, and let her know that I'm thinking of her, and hoping she's feeling better soon. My pastor/friend Mary Ellen Waychoff (MEW) gave me this Stampin' Up! set The Cats Meow several years ago, and I love all the kitty images in it. I'm the caregiver for MEW's 3 cats (Toby, Mitzi, and Emily), when she's away on church business, or on vacation. They are just the sweetest kitties ever, and they have impeccable taste in cards and gifts! They are always sending me little cards or things they think I'd like as a thank you for taking such good care of them when their mom is away. They are sneaky kitties let me tell ya, because they do this, and their mom never seems to know anything about it! Hmmmmm... Back to the card... I thought the colors in this Autumn Vine dotted DSP would pick up the colors I wanted to use for the cat, golfish, and water. I did cover the fish bowl and water drops with crystal effects, but it doesn't show up at all in the picture. Thanks for stopping in to have a look, and have a glorious day!
