Kitty Birthday

DSCF6540

Happy Thursday!  What  a glorious day it is here in PA---all that humidity blown away, and a cool refreshing temperature has replaced it!  Delightful!  Today’s card is for a man in our church, which fits the Pals Paper Arts masculine color challenge:

PPA96

I also used the sketch from Create with Connie & Mary:

And here’s my card:

John is our small group leader, a very wise man, lots of fun, and is known throughout the community for his kitty rescues!!!  He has taken in hundreds of stray cats that people drop off by his house; he feeds them, takes them to the vet for shots & neutering, and then finds homes for them.  If he can’t find a home, he has a “Cat House” in his back yard with lots of nooks and crannies, food and soft blankets for the kitties to cuddle up on!  What a soft heart he has!  So this card is for him!

It is also for today’s SCS WT 325 challenge, which is to use Diecuts.  I didn’t actually use a die; I used a punch, so I hope they don’t throw me out!

Miss Cassidy, although not crawling yet, finds ways to get into Grammie’s stuff:

  6. My daughter would love to help John out as she is a huge cat lover. Bless his heart for helping them out. Love the card - too cute. Got a big giggle our of the Kleenex box picture - sorry! Brought back memories. Time to move things up a level, especially once the crawling begins.

  12. Give John a huge hug from me!!! How awesome of him! I saw on TV a guy that did this and his cat house out back. Your card is fabulous, I love it. I remember when Paige was so into kleenex's... she would sit and pull each one out and either wipe her nose or mine. lol She had so much fun and the smile on her face was priceless. Thanks for the memory... awesome. Hugs,
