You're Purrrfect

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! I am so sorry to all my blogging friends out there, I have gotten so behind in leaving comments this week. I had a trial this week at work which isn't even close to being done (we had to extend it to several more scattered dates because the docket is so crazy right now) and I've had so much else going on at work that I thought I would lose my mind this week :) Anyway, I promise to get caught up this weekend, I've missed seeing all your beautiful work! I did manage to get a few minutes in the craft room last night and I have a card I'd like to share with you today.

If you've been a reader of my blog for a while now, you may recall that my husband and I were crazy and decided to go out on Black Friday. One of our many stops was at Wal-Mart at midnight that Friday morning to get the new lite Cricut cartridges that came out. Well, that was crazy and I don't think I'll ever do that again, but I did manage to get the three carts I wanted (they were only $20!). I decided to use one of those cartridges today, the Four Legged Friends cartridge. Isn't this kitten so cute! I love how the Cricut does the cuts on this cartridge, it makes them so that you can be more artistic and use funky colors for the little kittens and puppies. I cut my cat out at 4.25". After I put everything together, I used my white gel pen to do some doodling. Next I created my card base (which is 5" by 5") out of SU cardstock (all cardstock is by SU). My DP is from MME. I added a ribbon and a bow (tied with my Bow Easy) and then I adhered my cat with dimensionals so she would really stand out. For some finishing touches, I added a rose from Wild Orchid Crafts and some pink dew drops. The sentiment is from an old Studio G set. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. This weekend I hope to be back with a Magnolia card or two (my poor Magnolia stamps have been severely neglected these last couple of months). Have a wonderful day and a wonderful weekend and thanks so much as always for stopping by.
