Have a Purrfect Day

Happy Sunday Peeps!  Hope you're enjoying the weekend.

Well, guess what?  I braved Zippy's on day 2 since their opening and got some yummy Apple Napples (turnovers), malasadas, andagi (Okinawan donut), etc. for the office and home.    YUMMY!!!   Lucky I got there EARLY to beat the crowd.  Today, I stopped by again and I heard one of the worker say to a customer that they ran out of Apple Napples yesterday.  WOW!

Anyhoo, on to my card.  Here's a fun card of a happy cat (by Penny Black) enjoying her "purrfect" day on a branch.  I tend to color cats gray because it reminds me of our late cat.  She had LONG and super soft fur, was extremely tame, and so affectionate.  She used to hang out in a tree sometimes too.  Her pix is on my sidebar.

This is super cute. I love the pearls added to the border and SPARKLES! I am the same way about coloring cat digis....I have three to choose from though, so I get to pick which personality matches the digi the best. Thanks for joining us at Card Crafter's Circle this week!
