The Mind of a Cat

     Those of you who think you own a cat and those of you who fully understand that you are owned by a cat (or cats!) will appreciate the reality of this sentiment while the rest of you will find humor in  it.  That's a good thing since this card was done for Humor Me Wednesday at Catch the Bug, another of my Guest Designer creations.  Of course, if you and your fur babies live in cold country, this is just the first sign of spring!  lol

     I used "Bobblehead Farm Cat" from Bugaboo Stamps and it's only a dollar!  Can you believe that?  Go check it out; I've given you a link directly to it.


     I colored the image with ProMarkers, adding a floor and wall so that it's obvious he's inside.  I die cut him with a pinpoint, rectangle die from Memory Box and I cut the frame with another, larger die from that same set.

     The dp is a scrap which originally came from a "Linen Closet" stack by DCWV.  It's embossed and glittery.  I used the very last bit of some sheer, gold ribbon I had and added another of those accordion fold bows I like to make.

     I first saw bows like these in the embellishments section of my local scrapbooking store but they were very expensive!  I decided to try making them myself and bought three large rolls of beige fabric ribbon about an inch wide.  Once I conquered how to make the accordion fold (I use my bowmaker and wrap them around the middle), they were a snap to make.  I made several over the long weekend and had some left on the craft table so grabbed one for this card.  I think I used one on yesterday's card, too.

Such an adorable card. The sentiment is spot on also speaking for another cat person. Cats definitely have a mind of their own. Thanks for playing long with us at PIP Challenges.
