So we have been having some trouble with a few pesky racoons who like to party on our patio the last week or so. Hubby has been setting a large live trap to see if we can take care of the problem. (And, by take care of, I mean that we load the live trap, into the pickup and take the caught trouble makers to a state park about 10 miles away, and we release them unharmed.) This morning, I was running up to church early to drop something off and then coming home to get ready for our normal service an hour or so later. I found a great big kitty in our live trap – totally safe and snug, but definitely not sound… LOL. She was *hissing*.

I’m not normally a kitty cat girl, but after the wake up call this morning, this cute little number from The Greeting Farm was fun to color this afternoon. LOL. In fact, I’ve been having fun with The Greeting Farm all month. (Jess is featuring me today on TGF Blog – can you say intimidating!)  I am so appreciative that they asked me to join them as a guest designer this month!

I made this card for sewspendidstamper’s Hope You Can Cling To challenge at Splitcoast. Her challenge was awesome: H.O.P.E. (having only paper elements). Harder than you think these days with all of the pretty bling and buttons around. Girls, I didn’t even use my beloved linen twine or kraft paper!! Still super fun! I love these challenges because you have all month to work on them, and there are GREAT prizes up for grabs – seriously, like The Greeting Farm gift packages!

This card is a little bit smaller than my normal sized A2 card, and that is because I have these beautiful notecards and envelopes that are 3.5″ x 5.5″. I picked these up when I was in NYC with Jenn in August. I thought they would make super sweet (and quick) notes for my girls. I like to tuck notes into their lunchboxes from time to time. {loved} this find at Kate’s Paperie in SoHo.

I think I’ve rambled long enough for one day. I’ll be back tomorrow with something special… Have a beautiful Monday!

One response to “FUR-EVER!

  1. The card is so pretty and cheerful. Did you find the cat’s owner? I would think that they are too smart to get caught. Those note cards are luscious. I don’t know if I could bear to use them. Have a great week, looking forward to tomorrows post.
