SSINK Here Kitty Kitty

Our house is pretty quiet now that our girls are gone.  But we do have Swiffer & Kaboodle!  Those two can be pretty entertaining!  It’s exactly like Garfield & Odie!!  Swiffer is the hyper tag-along little brother & Kaboodle basically taunts him or puts up with him.

We never wanted a cat.  My husband didn’t, at least.  He’s allergic to cats.  But this stray cat insisted on being one of the family!  Kaboodle just LOVES Pat!  She always wants to sit on him & when he pets her she purrs so loudly and does that thing with her paws where they dig into you because she’s just so, so happy!  And did I mention she drools?!!  Seriously!  The happier she gets…

On to my cat card.  I don’t have the set called Pretty Kitty yet, but I do have the Cat Punch!

I used Basics Pack 2 Washi Tape in the background & used Foam Adhesive Strips to pop up the cat (instead of dimensionals) because I needed something skinny.  All supplies listed at the bottom of this post.  Found the original idea for this card HERE on the Cow Whisperer’s blog.  Her’s is black & white & very pretty!

I’m really hoping Stampin’ Up! will not retire this cute punch, but will come up with a new stamp set so that we can use it even more!!

Haunted House

Spent the afternoon making a Haunted House!  What fun!Haunted House 1

Most of the things I used are retired…but I bought a bunch of those houses when they were on sale last year.  I did use our Halloween Washi Tape.  Time to make some candy boxes to go with this!

Have a great weekend!

 

 

 

Card Sets for Desk Class

Sometimes you need a card in a hurry.  I have a fun solution… Card Sets to display on your desk!

Card Desk Set

This can be customized to fit your needs.  I’ve put stamps & post-its on the front of this one.  Maybe business cards or a small calendar?  The test tube on the side is decorated with washi tape & holds a matching pen.  The cards are hiding in the back.

Card Desk Set 4

The Note Cards & Envelopes (131527) are just the perfect size for this project!  We’ll make 4 cards/envelopes.

Card Desk Set 2

Know anyone going off to college soon?  This is perfect to help them keep organized!!
