|READ some fascinating tales/tails of able sea cats HERE.|
I am playing catch up again! Here's a card that I made for my Dad last month for Father's Day. I got it mailed off with his gift in plenty of time, but I never got it blogged because of all my other June activities. I really love how it turned out, though, so wanted to share it with you.
I have a lone 8" pad of this discontinued and VERY hard to find "By the Sea" Graphic 45 collection. Needless to say, I hoard it like crazy!! But since my Dad is an old retired Navy man, I pulled out some of the wonderful anchor paper and chose a panel from one of the cut-apart pages. Instant card. Love, love, love!!! It didn't matter that I don't have any of the extras from this collection like the awesome card stock stickers, die-cuts, pockets & tags, or chippies. Some red twine was all the embellishment it needed. Yay!!!
Hope you enjoyed my card. Hey, it's Graphic 45....how can you NOT love it, right? :) Thank you for your wonderful comments.
Oh, and I want all my Cat Lovers Hop friends to know that I am already planning this year's hop!! Yay!! I hope to have one of my son's black cats as the 2017 badge kitty....perfect for October, right? :) I just need him to get a good shot of her. Black cats are so hard to photograph well.
So..............mark your calendars for the 2017 Cat Lovers Hop......Oct. 23-28, 2017......right here at Her Peaceful Garden. Purr...purr...purr...
