Cats and GROAN - Another Bird

Two more clean and simple cards.  First off - cats!  This cute little guy is from Newton's Nook and he's going to be perfect for a birthday card for my sister-in-law.  She is very involved in the rescue of cats/kittens.  A very special lady!  The second card.................


There's that damn bird again!  Yikes!  It's ok though......I shot him!  Actually, he promised to leave me alone and I promised to leave him alone for a while.   This is pretty well exactly like a card on my previous post except he's decked out in purple this time.....and yes, there's a reason for two cards with purple on them today!

It's called The Hop To Stop!  This is to help raise awareness for Domestic Violence.  Domestic violence knows no boundaries - it can happen to men or women and be either physical or emotional.  Having worked in the court system for many years, I saw domestic violence on a first hand basis and believe me....it's not pretty.  You can find out all about the hop on Becca's blog.



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

That bird looks a bit concerned. Maybe the cat has got it's eye on him. Fun cards. Hugz

Well, naturally, the first card "he's as cute as a button, I mean kitten", and the second card "there's that ridiculously funny bird (almost as cute as a kitten). Two very pretty cards and I love this shade of purple, it looks like Gypsy from CTMH, and I used that color in my card.

Normally cats and birds would be a bad combination but not with these 2 fabulous designs and they both look sooooooo gorgeous in rich purple :-)

It's great to support such a good cause too.

Gorgeous cards. Love the images and all the pretty purple!

NanaConnie said...

Just got back from being away at a conference and the first thing I see on your blog is a cat! Does Rambo know about this post? Love the card and the image. Too cute.
I also love the bird. Personally, I think you should use him at least twice each and every month. He's very versatile and would work for so many things. :-D Of course, I love the purple on both cards.

Lori Kobular said...

Love both of your awesome cards Lynn!! I just love all the Newton stamp sets and those crazy birds are so much fun!!

Carol L said...

In this instance, cats and birds DO get along! LOL They're both cute cards and I love the purple colors. That bird is hilarious and I never get tired of seeing it, so if you shot him, revive him and bring him back again! I love how you colored him too :)
