Celebrate the Stack!

Today I'm sharing a Birthday card I made for one of my girlfriends who's  furry friends are at the top of her stack no matter what day it is.   I thought this Picket Fence Cats Are Family stamp was super cute and fitting for her.  

I colored the image with my Copic markers and added the 'years' with one of the Copic multi-liners.  I added the Who's counting? and vertical Celebrate stamps from others in my stash, then matted with a purple liner and a patterned yellow paper.

Be sure to check out Double Trouble Paper Crafting's Challenge #90 that is currently in progress.  The 'cat' theme is hilarious and the blog is filled with witty cat puns!  Part of their extra drawing is to submit a photo of ourselves and our pet.  Well it would be as they said "PAW-dom me, are you Kitten me?" if I posted that type photo!  Better yet, I'll be posting the Happy Birthday girl with her newest little kitty Archie!

 Now that's one handsome fireball! 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.

  1. What a fun card pam - I love it!! I also love the photo you shared - the wee kitten is so much like what my boy must have looked like at that age - I got him when he was 4-5 months old, having been 'rescued' from a semi-ferral pack of cats in town. He's now a big boy at 4.5 years old, and spoilt (er loved?), but still that soft caramel colour.
    Stay safe
