Happy Birthday Packet!

Hi folks....

so....some of you may know that my dearly beloved and I do not have children - but we do have two fur-babies. Well, today is our oldest cat's fourth birthday - Happy Birthday Packet!! (yes, that is a computer geek name - and please, don't mind the half-painted walls behind him in this pic - I'm a bit of a procrastinator when it comes to painting).

Isn't he a handsome puddin'? And yes, Crazy Cat Lady that I am, I made him a birthday card. Here it is!

Yes, I will really put it in with his birthday present - cat treaties and cat toys.

Anyways, some details about the card.

The stamped image is Surprise Cheer from PaperWorksCo and is coloured with Copic Markers (B21, B24, B00, B000, E00, E31, E33, R20, R24, YR00, YR02, YR04, E25, E27). I thought a mouse on his card would be kind of fitting since he IS a cat and two of his presents are electronic mice toys.

The papers are CTMH You Rock and the sentiment is from the CTMH From Me To You set (D1247).

Challenges for this card:
  • sketch is this week's Sunday Sketch from PaperWorksCo
  • PaperTake Weekly Challenge: 3-2-1 Recipe (I used 3 DPs, 2 buttons and 1 image stamp)
  • PaperCrafts Connection Challenge: Pleats (I pleated a strip of DP to create a nice little effect across the bottom panel).

Anyways, maybe later there will be pictures of him getting into his prezzie and sharing his birthday dinner with his younger sibling, Newton.

Hope you all have a great day!
