Feline better

Thought I'd send a fun card to the daughter of some friends of ours who's been having a hard time with chronic UTI's...yuck and no fun! The power went out in the middle of my creative process (pretty much a daily occurrence here, at least once a day...), so I ended up cutting out most of the pieces and doing some of the stamping by candle light...but once the power came back on it went together quickly and I was pretty well pleased with how it came out. I hope she likes it too, sweet thing, she's been through a lot.

Stamp credits and other shtuff:
The big kitty and paws are from Biblical Impressions - I haven't pulled him out for a long time so it was fun to use him again. There's actually a right and left paw, but whichever one this was I just stamped it twice, 'cause I didn't want to pull both of them out. Can't tell anyway, can you?...and who really cares...? Coloring is done with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. The saying stamp is from Stampola - I'm not sure if they still have this image or not...they tried to go out of business once and had a huge sale, then came back again, but not with their complete previous line. Check around their site, or inquire if you're interested. The paws are popped with foam tape, and I used a Sakura clear glaze pen on the eyes so they'd be a little shiny. The little tag tucks right in behind the kitty. Jacki sent me that tab punch - thank you friend! And just for her - a dot of acrylic paint in the center of my flower brad ;) (and yes, it really is centered - it just looks off because the light is catching one side of it - I couldn't wait until it was dry to take the picture.......)


  1. What a sweet card - I know your friend will love it! I can't tell about the paws either - looks fine to me. I'm so glad your move is getting closer & that the house help has been "resolved" (well, sort of). Have a blessed day!

  2. Tooooooooo cute! I just love this stamp. I know she will enjoy & appreciate this work of art!

  3. I love that kitten. I have had that stamp for some time and not really known what to do with it until this week when I came across another blog using that same stamp.

    I am thrilled to see more examples to inspire me to use that kitten stamp more. That is a clever saying also. I could probably print it with snap stamps or print it on the computer. Thanks for the inspiration. Take care and God bless, Elizabeth S.
