Out For A Stroll

I have a 'just for fun' card today.
I saw this inspiration palette at 
and just had to play along
being the cat lover I am...lol!


I have quite a few cat stamps (dogs too) and cannot resist a challenge
that includes them IF I can find the time.
Well, I am making the time today!

I created a VERY CAS card with a tiny bit of humor in it..lol.

I embossed a tree, added a few birds to it, for a bit of color.

I stamped the cat stamp with Versamark then Black  Detail embossing powder
from Sparkle N Sprinkle.....I love how it looks a little 'furry'.

For a tiny bit of the humor I mentioned above,
I popped a little birdie on the cat's tail...
(and I am sure he is not even aware of it...LOL)
I wonder where that cat is going, he looks like he is on a mission!

This stamp has a date on it of 1991...YIKES...that's 26 years old
(I must of purchased it when I was 2....hahahahaha)!!!

Entering the following challenges:
The House That Stamps Built ....Inspiration Palette (above)
Pile It On ....Humor/Puns
Stamping Sensations .... Close To Nature (x)
Cards In Envy .... Black and White
Retro Rubber .... ATG (1991 Stamp) (x)
Make My Monday .... White Embossing (4/01)

OMG, I must have been stamping when I was 2, also! That's a pretty kitty, though, and an awesome embossed tree. Too funny with the bird hitching a ride. Kinda reminds me of my Marvin when he was older. He probably wouldn't have minded.

This is super cute! I love that embossed tree; it looks fabulous. And that little birdie on the tail really makes this card! Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.

Such a lovely use of a very neutral colour scheme. I love the wee bird on the cat's tail. If it was a magpie, it would be poised to take revenge as it looks a bit as though the cat has a bird in his mouth. Maybe it's just his exuberant whiskers! The stamp might win a prize for 'most retro stamp of the challenge' :-) Thanks so much for joining us at Retro Rubber for our Anything Goes challenge.

A super card, I love how you have created a story with only a few stamps along with the embossed tree. I love the addition of the small birds, including the one on the cat's tail. Thanks for joining us at Make My Monday. Good luck. Caz DT.
