I'm having a lovely evening in with my cat Scraps.
She's an outside cat but loves coming in, and she tried to jump in a closed window this evening, so that didn't work too well. I took pity on her then and brought her in through the door :P She's just the sweetest cat ever; a short few months ago, she was too frightened of people to even come in the house. As regular readers of my blog know, she's a rescue cat... She and her sister were thrown out the window of a moving car, so our neighbour who saw it happening brought Scraps to us, and her sister Zero found her way to her sister in her own time. And from day one poor Scraps was frightened all the time, but we've coaxed her and fed her and treated her well, and now, she not only comes in the house, she settles, and over the last couple of weeks, she's started to settle on our laps as well :) She's the most loyal little creature too - anyone who says cats aren't loyal clearly has never had one! She won't let anyone touch her except my sister and I, not even our parents who live here too! I really can't comprehend how anyone could possibly treat any kind of animal the way our beloved Scraps was treated before we got her. It makes my blood boil.
Anyway. My neighbour and best customer requested a baby card for her relative in Canada who just had a little boy. I had an idea in my head straight away, so this is what I made :) I wanted it to be nice and flat as it's going in the post, so I kept the embellies to a minimum.
The image and top sentiment are LOTV, the lace and velvet ribbon are from Ribbon Girl, the gems are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the border is the MS Doily punch, the bottom sentiment I printed off on the computer, the bottom paper is Forever Friends and the top one is Nitwits. The doily is from my stash.
A closeup of this sweet image. It's great for both birth and christening cards for both genders, I love it's versatility. I coloured it with Promarkers and I put Stickles on the hearts and dots and Glossy Accents on the leaves.
The LOTV sentiment, so sweet.
