So Many of My Smiles Begin With You – Cat Lovers Hop Day 2

Welcome back for day two of the Cat Lovers Hop! There are lots of adorable and lovely projects already linked up – well worth PURRusing!! Perhaps you’ll be inspired to work up a project and join the fun!


It’s amazing how quickly cats can cause disaster, isn’t it?! But sometimes they’re just laugh-worthy, too…


This cute Krafty Kat-astrophe stamp reminds me a little of that silly old Ray Stephens song ‘Stuck on You’ – which also has a cat in it! (If you haven’t heard it and have ever had a super glue catastrophe, you’ll get a giggle out of it. Since I don’t know how to put sound on a post yet, here’s a link where you can listen to it:

I used this month’s Kraftin’ Kimmie challenge sketch:


This was my first try at doing a spotted inky background. It’s funny how hard it is to do random on purpose! lol!

I love how Glossy Accents adds realism to the eyes, Scotch tape, and spilt coffee!


Some more kitty fun from around the house. Becca’s card on the hop yesterday reminded me of this mug that a friend gave me a while back. >^.^<

  1. Hello, D.Ann! Your kitty card is so funny! Cats get into so much trouble, don’t they! I’m still ooohing and aaahing over the blinds on your card from yesterday hehe! I love your KK stamp! The glossy accents on the eyes looks amazing – will have to try that! Beautiful background you made! I have a lot of cat mugs too – I love yours! Thanks for sharing the funny memes!


  2. Oh, your kitty is a mischief maker! Bad, bad, fun kitty! haha The glossy accents on the eyes are awesome looking! And I love the distressed edges … I’m sure kitty did that, too. lol Great card & great take on the sketch. (And that is a cute mug!).


  3. Oh my gosh, I just can’t stop laughing! That card is the cutest design…and adding glossy accents to the eyes and coffee make it even more fun, and those cat posters are waaaaay too hilarious! I am so glad that Janis came up with this hop because this is just the tonic for a dreary day!

  5. awwwww, I had to giggle at your last to pics… soooo funny with Mondays ugly sister and the striped cat…. still giggling with the thought! Your card is fabulous… I’ve had my fair share of naughty cats… and this just reminds me of their funny antics! Love the image.. and the sentiment is true too!


  6. Oh, my goodness…..D.Ann, your post and card have me laughing myself silly!!! I love your card. The glossy accents really give the eyes that gleam that is appropriate for this scene. I don’t think my cats have gotten stuck in the scotch tape, but otherwise that lady could be me…..endlessly removing a cat from my craft table!!!

    I know all about cat-astrophes, though. One time, one of mine stepped on my heat gun on/off switch and turned it on while I was in the shower. Could have burned the house down if I had been gone at the time!! I learned my lesson to unplug it EVERY time….not just most of the time. A few scorched things and melted plastic items were, fortunately, the only damage sustained!!! Whew….

    LOVED listening to the hilarious Ray Stephens song. I hadn’t ever heard it before. So funny!! Thanks for sharing your wonderful cat projects and hilarious cat cartoons. The striped ones make you look thinner……….Hahahahahaha!!!! LOVE it!!!

    Thanks so much for being a part of the Cat Lovers Hop!!!!
