Napping Cats

As soon as I saw this stamp at Newton's Nook, I knew it would be coming to live in my stash.  I actually purchased it within hours of it becoming available. I am sending my Dad a card a week until I visit him and he loves the cat cards.  I mostly try to color them to represent Digger and Jack.

I stamped the stamp twice, colored it and fussy cut both. On the second stamped image, I cut only a portion to vary the look.  I can't send just one cat!  I found some perfect Lawn Fawn paper for the background. I also traced over all the lines with a black marker once it was colored.  It gives such a crisp image.  I love keeping the paws white, and I colored them with a white gel pen when everything else was done.

September is my blog anniversary month, and often the month I visit my Dad during the fall.  I get to see  him and my girlfriends and visit a few of my old stomping grounds. I will pre-post some cards while I am visiting since my card making supplies will be very limited.

  2. Love that image. My cat has just discovered the laundry basket. He's used to sleeping in the clothes piled on the bed, though. Oh, wait, did I just admit something I shouldn't have? ;/

    Have a good visit with your father and friends!
