Animal Crazy!

Happy Thursday everyone! For some reason this feels like the loonnngest week--maybe cuz' I'm still recovering from my sinus infection or just the feelin' that I'm not getting much done, lol! Tomorrow night, my hubby and I are going out to dinner with a bunch of our friends to see a comedy show---I'm looking forward to it, but I still don't know what I'm wearing. Not a surprise to my hubby as he says I wait till the last minute and thrash around in my closet and go thru many outfits before I'm satisfied...ummm...doesn't everyone, lol? And my mom and sister will be here Saturday for the weekend and I have some housekeeping to do before then--it seems the laundry miiighhtt be getting out of control, hee hee! All those pesky chores keeping me from my craft room!

I have another theme day for ya' and this time it's furbabies. I love all my furbabies so much and I have recently added to my family(2 doggies, now 5 kitties, 1 hermit crab). I rescued an 8 yr old siamese kitty and we adopted her this week. The owner had to give her up as she was going to an assisted-living facility and the shelter was just days away from euthanizing this lovely kitty. My siamese passed away last year and she was my lap kitty and I miss her so--but Simona is loving my lap too it seems :) My loving and supportive hubby has told me "NO more animals" unless we move to a farm, hee hee--I love that man! So instead I made two animal cards for ya today.

The first card is a Rachael Anne Miller stamp called "Peek-a-Boo"--her images are so whimsical and fun! I didn't want to use traditional colors so I based everything on this dp from Black Market called Lucky 'n Love. I covered a chipboard flower with dp and just did alot of layering. There's a few stickles thrown in too, lol! The sentiment is from Pink Cat Studio. I'm entering this one in the Cute Card Thursday Challenge which was to make a card with a cat or dog (ha ha I did both)!

The second card uses a Spiral Whisper stamp--this is one of the cairn terrier images by Janet Roberts (she has one and I have 2 cairns). I used the sketch from Papertake Weekly by the very talented Katharina of Whiff of Joy for this card--the circles were cut out with my nestabilities. The sentiment is from Lizzie Anne (sketched sentiments) and the ribbon is SU as is the yummy dp (Green Tea).

Hope ya like my "animals" today! BTW, I got my new "rubbah" from Whiff of Joy and I'm lovin the new stamps---you'll have to wait and see...(sorry to tease ya)!! Don't forget to visit the following sites if you haven't already:

-Bev (my fellow Whiff of Joy DT sistah) has blog candy up for grabs until the 22nd

-Katharina (of WOJ) is looking for a guest designer here


PS--Today is the last day for Linda Deline to claim my blog candy from last Friday. If I don't hear from you by 11 pm (EST) I will have to draw another winner which I will announce tomorrow, so check back !

  5. Love your furbaby cards!!!! They are adorable!!!! congrats on the addition to your family! My hubby would have said the same thing! He calls his sister's house the zoo...her and her hubby do not have any children...but they have lots of furbabies...3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 hourses, and I am not sure if they recently added anymore! :) I think my sister-in-law should have been a vet instead of an attorney b/c she loves animals so much! Hope you have a wonderful time at your dinner date! Can't wait to see your new Whiff of Joy creations...I am sure I will NEED to order some more stamps then! :)
    Hugs~ Kim
