|Awww.....We all know the feel of that gentle head bump that our cats do when we reach down to pet them, don't we? Also, we know about the little happy "fist" this kitty is making. Sweet picture!!|
The CAT LOVERS HOP is EXTENDED!!!!!
Oct. 26 - Nov 1, 2015
Happening through the weekend at Her Peaceful Garden
Last day to link up: Now is Nov. 1
Last day to comment: Now is Nov. 3
Welcome to my Day 1 post for the Cat Lovers Hop. I am delighted you are here to join us for a week of cats, cats, and more cats!!! This is your chance to talk about cats with other cat lovers, to comment on their fabulous cat projects, to make and share cat projects of your own, and to have a chance at some fabulous prizes!!!! Please read the Guidelines and FAQ page and go to the hop's main post for linking up.
I am going to try to post a project each day that features products from one or more of our fabulous sponsors. Today I am sharing a card made with some of Graphic 45's "Raining Cats & Dogs". Did you know that Graphic 45 is donating some products from this line as a prize to a lucky random winner? How cool is that????
I hope you will take a moment to visit the Graphic 45 blog and social media spots to tell them "Thanks for sponsoring the Cat Lovers Hop at Her Peaceful Garden!!" Here are some links for you:
My crafty friend, Karen L., sent me some goodies from this G45 line (Thanks, Karen!!!) and I used one of the large cards as the focal panel for this gate card. I matted it in pumpkin and black as a nod to the season....but I don't really think it looks too Halloweenish, just a little bit autumny.
Anybody out there have a cat that looks like this kitty? I have one that sort of does. His name is Marshmallow. Marshy has more white on him than this fluffy armful has, but he's the closest one I have to this illustration. We used to say Marshy was a "big soft clump of somethin' sweet". He was born feral, but his mommy disappeared. We captured him and his sister, Scamper, when they were eating on the back porch at our old house. They were crouching all the way inside the food pans. We refer to this as "the way wild kittens eat". Hard to believe they are 9 years old now!
Here's a photo of the card partially opened up, so you can see the gate effect. A big sheer black bow and some pretty pearls finished it off. I love the vintage look!!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will join in the hop by commenting and/or linking up a cat-themed project on the main post!! Also, I hope you will tell us all about the cats at your house. I promise you'll be getting an earful about my tribe of 20+ cats!!!
