A Valentine for My Valentine

My husband who never had a cat for a pet, gave me a kitten when we were dating many years ago, and thus began his love of cats. Today we have two sweeties, Lucy and Gus. This little girl sitting in the tree looks much like sweet Lucy since I added those black markings to this stamped image. Lucy has some odd markings, but she also has the sweetest face. Her beau sitting beside her may be from her past when she was a stray. He is not Gus who is black ( a little too difficult for me to color), although Gus says,"I'd date Lucy if she wasn't my big sister because she sure is pretty."

This cute pair are from Crafty Secrets Cutie Cats stamp set, colored with Prismacolor pencils.

I mounted them with dimensional tape on to a heart pocket cut with a Silhouette. I used these Silhouette files: 24996 and 37803. This is ready to slip my Valentine note  into the pocket for my heart's love.

I 'm linking this to the Crafty Secrets Linky Party here. Be sure to check out the other entries.
