Happy Anniversary Deb & Alistair!

I have a couple of anniversary cards to do this month and this is the first. Sis-in-law, Deb, spotted me doing a bit of stamping this afternoon (in the kitchen) when she popped in to give hubby a lift up to the Hospital. 'Oho I like that one', she said, pointing to some singing cats. and so, while they zoomed off to see their mum, I made Deb and her hubby Alistair, an anniversary card as it's their anniversary today! (which was quite handy really!)
Not the normal card for an anniversary, singing cats, but they do like cats. They have two. Bruce and Wallace. No prize for guessing where Alistair comes from!
I've used Pink Petticoat papers. I've had these for ages, and can't ever remember ever using them. I've inked the edges with a bit of blue chalk ink, added faux stitching and Stickles glitter. The cats were stamped out twice, coloured with Promarkers and then 3D-ed. (that way you still keep the whiskers!)
The sentiments were all done on the computer. The fonts are all freebies. The 'me-ow' is called DayDream. The cats are singing 'Happy Anniversary to you-ooo' and that font is called Ck_alis_hand_Official and the sentiment I've used inside the card is called Huntson and the image inside the card is from Pepper and Friends, so cute!

  14. A beautiful creation.... those colours are so delicate! And don't we all love it when a few cats get together to sing! Thanks for joining our For Fun challenge!

  15. I'm sure your cats LOOK better singing than they SOUND. I say this from personal experience because there are a couple of moggies around here who just love to keep the neighbourhood awake with their cat-erwauling.

    However, having said that, I love your picture. It made me smile. Thanks so much for taking part in the Muses challenge this week.

  16. I think cats are perfect for an anniversary card...thanks so much for playing along with us at FFC!


Thank you so much for your comments! They make my day!!
