Hit Me, Cupid!

Hey Peeps, hope you're having a great week!

Today, I want to share this Valentine's card featuring this cute kitty image by Penny Black.  It reminds me of our cat Fuzz who we lost a few of months ago.   For this card, I used Spellbinder dies including "Label Three" which I got for Christmas from my cuz (thank you), Copics, heart edge punch by Martha Stewart, DP from my stash, leaves from my blog pal  Dora, flowers and buds by Prima, All Natural Accents, and Wild Orchids, butterfly from stash, sentiment (unknown), ribbon by Offray, pearl pen by VIVA, Stickle, Distress Ink, and bead charm which I made.

Here's a pix our our late beloved kitty, Fuzz.  I used to call her our "Calendar Cat."    She was super affectionate and sooooo tame.  When our sons were little, one of our sons could actually give her a ride on his bike with her back legs on the bar in front of the seat and her front paws on the handle.   They ride down the driveway but she'd fly/jump off when he hit a bump.  At night, she knew which part of the house we were in and she'd be right outside meowing to call us out in her super high-pitched voice.  Sometimes I'd go out to give her gentle neck scratches and she'd just purr with contentment.


I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
The Perfect Sentiment - "PSC64 - Anything Goes with a Die Cut"
Whimsy Stamps - "Challenge #55 - Fancy Edges"
Twisted Tuesday - "Challenge 2TC42 - Anything Goes"
Loves Rubber Stamps - "Have a Heart"

Thanks for poppin' in for a visit.  HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!!!!

What a cute card. The cat on the card is very cute just like Fuzz was. It must be hard for you and your family without Fuzz around. I hope that the fun memories of her comfort you a bit.
