RS227 Foxy Kitty

Hi peeps!  A fun, whimsical card today using the sketch from RetroSketches:

My sweet friend Sandy gave me a package of papers which included ribbon, DSP and brads!  I just had to use some of them to make a thank you card for her!  Sandy, this card is on its way!

I am not sure if she likes cats or not, but the sweet smile on this kitty would make anyone love her!  I stamped the images from Foxy Friends in Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip inks, then punched them out and assembled them on a scalloped circle.  I added some sequins to the card after I stamped the sentiment (A Dozen Thoughts, ret SU) and gave her a sweet little sequin and pearl necklace!

I wish you could see this paper IRL...there are gold lines in the plaid paper, and some of the flowers are FLOCKED!  SO retro and cool!  Thanks for poppin' in today!

Today is Cassidy's 6th birthday, and she has been stalking the mail lady each day this week for a card (or better yet, a package!).  So far, she's received three cards and I tried to make her wait to open them on her actual birthday, but she wasn't haven't any of it!  Here she is waiting to open the first one (it was from my dad!):

Poor thing...she's also on meds for an ear infection...not a fun thing during your birthday week, but we are pretty sure she's on the mend!

Have a blessed day!


  1. Love your cute kitty card - those papers are gorgeous and go so well together. Happy birthday wishes to young Cassidy - 6 years old, wow! I hope she has a great day despite her ear infection and I hope that clears up soon - ear and tooth ache really are the worst I think in terms of pain, poor thing!

  2. Happy Birthday Cassidy! It's my birthday too! Hope yours is filled with lots of love, laughter, and dreams come true!

  3. Happy birthday Cassidy! It's fun getting real mail, especially when it's cards, letters or better yet...packages! Have a special day.

  4. Super cute card, LeAnne! I love the mix of patterns, especially those retro daisies. Happy Birthday to Cassidy!

  5. What a cute card! Your work never ceases to inspire me! I check in to your blog almost every day to see your card and photo of the day. Can't believe Cassidy is 6 already! The years fly by too fast! I sure hope Cassidy is soon well! God bless you and your family!

  6. Happy 6th. Birthday, Cassidy!!!!! I know it was wonderful.
    How fun to receive real mail, there is nothing like opening a sweet card, specially if it's from your Grandma.
    Big hugs, sweetie.
    Maria Rodriguez.

  7. Even if she's not a cat person, she will love this adorable card!! I like the sweet mix of papers you used. This is cute LeAnne! Sending Cassidy the HAPPIEST of birthday wishes!! :)

  8. Oops, hope she feels better soon too. Ear infections are no fun for little ones :(

  9. This card is cute cute cute! One cute was not enough! Miss C deserves more than one cute too.......can't believe she is 6!Hope she has a fun birthday week!

  10. I remember being that young and actually finding mail addressed to me in the mailbox. How exciting that was! Now most of my mail has a "payment due date" on it so I don't get nearly as excited about it as I did back then.

    Your card is just adorable and any cat lover would love it! I've got an uncle who is constantly teasing me about my cats so I would love to send him a card like this for his birthday. In fact, I just may have to CASE this in the future for him! Thanks for the inspiration!

  11. I love your cards and I love watching Cassidy grow up. Can't believe she is six! What a beautiful girl she is. Happy Birthday to Cassidy.

  12. What a fun kitty card! I really like the saying too! Hope your little girl has a lovely birthday.
