Feline Better

Another quick card using a Newton's Nook stamp (Newton's Sick Day).  I don't know about y'all but, as I've said before, I never have a get well type card on hand when I need it.  There's so many cute images in this set I don't think I'll have an excuse not to have one now!

I found this red embossing paste at a store in the city that has since closed it's doors.  Really a VERY bright red and so pretty - and goes on super smooth too!  I used a stencil and embossed the red stripes at the bottom.  The kitty nurse was mainly left white (with touches of gray).  A sentiment added and a bit of twine.  Except for waiting for the embossing paste to dry overnight, it was a really quick card.

I'll enter this in the Simon Says Stamp challenge (Wednesday) (Furry Friends).

Thanks for stopping by.........
Lynn

This is so cute Lynn and I like the punny sentiment. Funny thing that, I never have get well cards either...

NanaConnie said...

OK, you've inspired me to get and use some stencil paste, Lynn. I haven't seen it in the stores but then I haven't really been looking for it. I adore what you did with that bright red paste! Kitty is precious and the twine really 'ties' everything together. (Oh, come on -- you knew someone was going to say that -- it might as well be me. lol)

Super cute, Lynn! Looks like the candy stripers from back in the day! I love how you make CAS cards like none other - I could pick yours out of a line up of 100 they are so unique and beautiful ♥ And we both have cats on our blogs - LOL! Maggie will be over the moon! :)

And there was me thinking that the stripes at the bottom of the card was a piece of DP...but the embossing is lovely and I bet that adds a lovely texture IRL :-)
This cute kitty and fun sentient would be just the trick to cheer someone up if they were under the weather - so lovely :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx

Such a sweet, sweet card. I love those bold red stripes. Newton's Nook has the cutest images. I keep pretending they don't exist. It is easier on my budget that way. This card is great and you are right you never have a get well card when you need it. Darn people need to stop getting sick!!!

nwilliams6 said...
