|Happy Birthday to Janis!!!!!|
"A cat isn't fussy -- just so long as you remember he likes his milk in the shallow, rose-patterned saucer and his fish on the blue plate. From which he will take it, and eat it off the floor."
Hey, hey......Today is my Birthday!!!! So I am posting some cat birthday photos that I have found. Today is special on my blog for several reasons, too. First of all, it is Friday so it is Unity - Friends with Flair day....Hooray!! I already have had my big February Triple Giveaway that included my Birthday Giveaway, but I found a duplicate stamp that Unity sent me one time so I am having a tiny little RAK giveaway for it. More about that later....
Second, today kicks off the Spring Coffee Lovers Hop
envisioned and organized by the super-sweet Amy Tsuruta. I have a special card I will be linking up for that hop and have another little RAK giveaway for that post, too. So be watching for all the terrific festivities here and all over papercraft blogland today!!!!
Today I am sharing an easy birthday card I made for a girlfriend who shares a birthday with me. How fun is that??? She loves so many of the same things that I do (like cats!) that this Birthday Week Checklist card for her could easily apply to me!! Happy Birthday, Cathy D!!! (For some inexplicable reason, known only to computer and internet wizards, I couldn't link this photo up for my thumbnail on Unity. Please let me know if you are having trouble viewing my card!)
My checklist stamp is from a Unity grab bag (not the one that I won recently....I am still looking forward to that one arriving!!!) My dear sister-in-law sent me a humongous container of about a million super-gorgeous gel pens for my birthday. (THANKS, Polly!!!) So I used one of them...a glittery deep green....to write down things on the checklist that my friend (and I) need to do in the next week for our birthdays!!!
I didn't follow a sketch specifically for this card, but I have seen simple ones like this. I thought stacking the papers looked great under the checklist......and was a great way to use scraps!! :)
I made my background with another Unity grab-bag stamp. This one is a fancy swirl and you can't really see it well, but I still like the depth it adds to the background. I Versamarked it and embossed with clear powder. Then I rubbed on some Gelatos - tangerine, gold champagne, and pistachio. A twine bow finished off this easy and fun birthday card.
Now for my tiny little RAK giveaway........since I already did my big giveaway but can't let my actual birthday go by without giving something away on my blog!!!.......
When you comment below, please tell me if you would like to be entered to receive my little extra Unity stamp and please leave your email address (in code is fine) . Who knows....I might find a few other little goodies to include when I send this off to the winner. :) I will draw a random winner from among those who said they'd like the stamp on Thursday, March 5, 2015 and announce the winner next week on my Friday Unity FWF post.
