What's Mew?

With their qualities of cleanliness, discretion, affection, patience, dignity, and courage, how many of us, I ask you, would be capable of becoming cats?" -Fernand Mery Her Majesty the Cat

If like me you are a cat person, you will love the recently released Crafty Secrets stamp set: Cutie Cats. This was one of the three stamps I chose as the lucky random winner of Crafty Secrets July Linky Party.. Thank you Sandy for sponsoring such a great opportunity that offers such wonderful inspiration from so many crafters as well as the chance to add more Crafty Secrets goodies to our stash.

I began by printing the patterned papers from Crafty Secrets first CD and stitching them together. Then I stamped, cut, and colored the sweet kitty; then propped him over the postcard.  A stamped bracket from French Mail in the corner and embellishements with the sentiment complete the  card, ready to send to a cat- loving friend.

Our own sweet Lucy spent Monday night at the pet emergency clinic. Her heart rate was dangerously high and she was dehydrated. After many tests, the vet believes she has mild pneumonia. She is home now and is moving around some and eating a little today. She even stood at the French doors which is her signal she wants to go outside, but her nurse/mommy is keeping her inside and feeding her disgusting delicious salmon pate cat food and trying to get water in her with a medicine dropper.

  1. Adorable, Cammie! This card is so sweet & pretty! The kitty is such a cutie and I love the soft colors and bit of stitching. And Lucy looks quite pretty herself. Hope she gets better soon and that you don't have to struggle much with the medicine dropper!

  2. Hello Cammy,
    I came on over from the Linky Party and had to say what a pretty card you created. I love your feminine twist. Don't you just love all the Crafty Secret images, and you got to win some too, I have been trying for a while.
    You must have been very worried about your furry child and I am glad to hear she is on the mend.

  3. Hi Cammie, your card turned out so sweet and I love the stitching you added and papers used!
    Thanks for the nice compliments, and for posting in our Aug Linky Party and good luck!

  4. Hi Cammie, I tried to view the post for The Cameo Spotlight but it isn't visible. I think you have to re-post it. I've been having the same issues.


I truly appreciate your comments. Thanks for taking the time to leave one.
