You're Purrr-fect!!.

Good morning! And a very happy, blessed Sunday to you all! We didn't really do too much yesterday. My father-in-law has a hip that is acting up and my husband twisted his back a bit and he has been hurting. So, we stayed home today and relaxed. The only time we went out was to get a new graphics card for hubby and to take and pick up my son from work. I did cook today.. which is rare! LOL I really don't enjoy cooking! But I put a roast into the slow cooker, added some celery, onions, potatoes and carrots and a bag of onion soup mix and let it cook all day. That was dinner and it was really nice.

I did sign my youngest up for her Fall Season of Lacrosse. She will be with the girls from Allatoona High School playing for HotLanta. She is excited :)  Then in the Spring she will get to play with the actual Hig School Team. She loves it and she is a pretty good goalie :)  I love watching her play and cheering her on! Okay.. enough of that stuff :)  On to the card for today!

I love cats! And this little guy is a cutie! I have made another card with him, but had this other image just sitting there waiting to be used. This is what I came up with this time:

This is all black and white. I have added several different embossing patterns onto this card. Each strip of black has its own design on it. The little kitty is colored with Copic Markers. The sentiment is stamped with white. The stamp is from Paper Smooches. I love their sentiments! This is another image that has been colored in a box just waiting to be pulled out and made into something. My stamp got all smeary :p  Oh well... you can definitely tell it is hand made LOL! With flaws!  I always have a hard time with the white ink for some reason!

Awww . . . how cute! The black and white color scheme is fabulous and the different textures really give some added interest. The smeared sentiment just looks like the chalkboard creations that are all the rage. : ) I always have to let things stamped in white dry for a very long time before trying to attach them to my cards otherwise I have the same problem. Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.

I'm the crazy cat lady, so you know I LOVE this card :) You are correct, it is a cutie!

It is wonderful how all of your embossing textures work together. They make and adorable card paired with your simple embellishment.

I had an issue on my card this week and left it. That is huge for me. I am a crafter with OCD issues. Really tough, but chalked it up to what you can tell it's handmade. If they wanted perfect, they would have bought it in a store.

Thanks for playing at Jo's Scrap Shack!

Happy crafting :)

LOL So funny to see you write that Bridget.. I'm the same way.. serious OCD issues! Normally I would have gone back and fixed it up. It was hard to just leave it! REALLY hard!
