Well, as some of you may know, our oldest son and his girlfriend have 2 kitties.....big kitties. So I thought this Penny Black image would be perfect for our son's girlfriend who recently celebrated her birthday. Of course, I wanted to color this kitty like one of their cats which is gray. And that would be Eli. If you zoom in, you can also see the most itty-bitty bow I've ever made with sewing thread to tie the strings for the balloon.
Ingredients for this card:
"Puffy Clouds" and "Resting Birds" die by Memory Box from Island Scrapbooking
Balloon dies by CC Design
Fence die by Magnolia
Grass punch by Martha Stewart
Sentiment - Laser cut by and from Island Scrapbooking
Thread for bow
And for those who live in Hawaii, especially on the Big Island, we are keeping our eyes on the lava flow and praying for those who are or will be affected as it inches it's way towards Pahoa town. According to the news report I just heard, the front is 50 yards wide, traveling about 300 yards per day, and is currently about 2 miles away from reaching Hwy. 130. It is estimated to cross the hwy. in about 12 days. Alternate routes are being constructed now. This shot was taken from our street. The left side of that line of smoke is the flow front. That is about 20 miles (per hubby) from where we live but we're at a higher elevation.
Thank you for stopping by and HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!
