The Perfect Cat

Confused by the title and the image?!!

I combined both Monday Split Coast challenges in my card today. The CAS challenge was to use humor - the Try a New Techinque challenge was to use a different shape for your card.

I found this cute little scottie dog template in Papercrafts Magazine on line. Isn't he just adorable?!

I cut the dog out of a textured Bazzill paper, added his little jacket, stamped the sentiment, cut it out and tied a bow around his neck!
The sentiment is from Rubbernecker.

I used to be just a dog person - we had a sweet cocker-springer spaniel mix dog growing up and later I had the most wonderful great dane, but years later someone gave me a little homeless kitty and I became a cat lover too.

Now we have two beautiful Russian Blue cats who are sisters, named Scout and Boo. I have to say, they are a lot easier to take care of than a dog......

Scout always sits with me when I stamp - so I had to explain to her that I really didn't mean what I stamped on the card ....... LOL!!

This sweet little pup will fit in a regular size envelope in case you're wondering!

So can I assume you are a fan of "To Kill a Mockingbird"? One of the greatest books ever. A book, a cat (or two or three), and a cup of hot chocolate equals the perfect afternoon (when I'm not card making,that is).

Your card is super cute! Love the plaid jacket. And the sentiment, lol,........glad to hear you didn't mean it.

So cute Julia! I have to agree the perfect cat IS a dog x 2 :) Your sweet template looks like my Westies if only it were white :)

OMGosh...this is FABULOUS. Love this sentiment, as I'm more of a dog person than a cat woman. Great job.
