Out of the Box

Sometimes, as crafters, we have to create somewhat "out of the box", or at least, out of our own comfort zone.  I will admit it, my friends, I'm NOT a cat lover.  I'm a dog person.  However, my dear friend, Sue, is a cat lover.  So, when it came time to make her Birthday card, I had to think "Outside the Box".  I used a vintage cat image to make this little card for her.  She just loves all things cats.  I hope she loves this card.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Lily Pad Cards is celebrating their blog's 1st Birthday.  They have a fun blog hop taking place.  I hopped through it today and had a lot of fun.  You might want to check it out as well.  There are lots of great prizes.  I'm entering this card in one of the challenges on their blog:

Simon Says Stamp is another great challenge blog.  I am entering this card in this week's challenge at their lovely blog as well:

I'd also like to invite everyone to stop by Word Art Wednesday and link up a creation.  We're trying to building up this challenge blog, and we would greatly appreciate YOUR participation.  Please take a moment to check it out and link up your creations this week.  We're blessed when YOU join us.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a blessed week.

My Cup Runneth Over,
Karen

  5. Ambition has but one reward for all: A little power, a little transient fame; A grave to rest in, and a fading name travel
