Me-ow! My-oh! Mymessage Card …

I made for the current Hero Arts “mymessage” challenge. Ironically, it was raining last night when I made this card…and it’s still drizzling this morning.

The "window" is stamped using a HA shadow stamp from a boxed set of 4 stamps. The “windowsill ledge” is a folded scrap of cuttlebugged cardstock.

I used a foil top from my favorite Greek yogurt for the silver “cat-tag”. I’ve been hanging onto these foil tops ‘cause I love to recycle and knew that...one-day...I would be able to re-cycle them into my craft!

While rummaging around in my blue embellishment tray, I found these ‘rain dots’ that I had purchased a while back but never used. (I see now that I probably should have placed one or two under the windowsill ledge.)

Close-ups of the ledge...

another view...

I used a combination of letter sets: All Night Media’s DJ Chunky Clear Alphabet Stamps (My oh); Inkadinkado Cattitude clear stamp set (Meow!); and Martha Stewart Halloween Typeface clear stamps (for the - and !).

The “under the weather” sentiment is by A Muse and the cat ‘out on the ledge’ by Judi-Kins.

This was fun!

Thanks for stopping by...

Too cute! Love the dimension on this and that cat is hilarious! Fun use of the recycled material too. Thanks for visiting my blog, and yes I am a Michael Franks fan but my favorite version of the song is Diana Krall's
