Waiting on Snail Mail – Cat Lovers Hop

Can you guess what kind of card I’ll be posting this evening? Yep! Another Kitty card!

Let’s start first with a question: why are male cats called Tomcats?

Perhaps it was so they wouldn’t be confused with MAIL cats, like this one:


Oh, I know that was a groaner of a joke. Sorry! I get silly this time of day. It’s so hard to get a decent pic of cards with sequins! Let me know if you have found any tricks that work for that. I love this stamp of the kitty waiting around for snail mail! … Or was the kitty himself sent via special delivery? The flag is up, so maybe he’s wanting to go on a trip!

squeee… I was posting this on Instagram and only then happened to notice how the far edged of the bracket border die kind of look like kitties!! Do you see it?!!

Another example of Pareidolia  the human ability to see shapes or make pictures out of randomness

I HAVE to break away on another kitty tangent and show you this ADORABLE Britto style felt glasses case one of my talented friends made:


Isn’t it just adorable?! You can find more of her jewelry making talent at wireandwings.com Speaking of adorable… in case you missed it, check out her mom’s Main Coon Cat, Charlie, that I featured a while back on my blog HERE.

Since you’ve been enjoying my little table scenes, I’ll keep ’em up. That little black kitty is a hand-painted trinket box someone brought me from Poland. So sweet!

What?! You’re still here? I suppose you think I’ll have another meme for you, eh?

Well, alright, since you asked nicely… here are a couple to go with our sleepy kitty…



Yep, that’s me… one crispy critter — wearing a cape!! lol!

  1. hee heee, totally loved the ‘cape kitty’ – that’s so funny! Your card is lovely… and a mail box is exactly the shape and sort of thing a cat would love to laze in! Sweet image!


  2. This is an adorable stamp! I have it in my stash but haven’t used it in ages! So many stamps and so little time! Cute card and beautifully coloured! I love the glasses case made by your friend – so pretty! Glad to see you are enjoying the hop too!


  3. Yes, I do believe that kitty is planning to go on a trip, which is why the flag is up!! Of course, he must be a rather laid back and independent sort because he’s catching a snooze before he leaves, unlike those of us who check and double-check (and then check it all again) their tickets and luggage before departure. As to that border, I DO see the cat faces!!! Of course, by now on the this third day of the Cat Lovers Hop, I’m seeing cats everywhere…so I’m not surprised. Count me as one who is really enjoying your table scenes and cat memes and cartoons. That Super Lazy cat is so ridiculously cute that I may have to repost your meme!


  4. This is a really sweet image. Lovely card and YES, I see kitty faces at the bottom – how funny is that?! (P.S. Who doesn’t read to the end of the post?!?).


  5. You ARE a kitty lover, aren’t you? Loved scrolling down and oohing and aahing and chuckling! Your kitty card has so many interesting embellishments! Thanks for playing along with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!


  6. D.Ann your posts have just been a complete joy on this hop. I am so glad I subscribe by email so I know when you have put another one up!!!

    That kitty in the mailbox is beyond sweet!!! Love it…..and I see the kitty, too!!! It’s funny because I was doing a bunch of die-cutting a few weeks ago and one of my scraps looks just like a tiny kitty taking a nap. I will prob use it on an ATC some time because it is pretty small and would get lost on a card. So much fun to serendipitously find cats. 🙂

    Your cat memes are just the best!! I am still giggling over the super lazy kitty with the cape!!! lol….
    Thanks so much for linking up in the Cat Lovers Hop!!!

    • Forgot to say that I have one of the same mugs as you have in the table display! I also have the reverse one in that set that is mostly blue. Not sure if there are more in that series or not. They are so pretty and elegant. Some of my faves.
