Chocolate Keeps You Safe! Fun Fat Cat Card

Hello again! I’m back with a humorous card for the Cat Lovers Hop.

A few months back our whole family went on a diet and each successfully shed scores of pounds. However, my folks recently hit a plateau. To congratulate them on their accomplishment, and encourage them to keep up the good work with some humor, I send them this fun card:

I think these two cats are safe, don’t you?!! I love how shiny the Brilliance ink is when stamping with it! To help it stand out, I just lightly colored the kitties with some chalks:

The Liquid Pearls make the chocolate look almost edible (if slightly melted)… Gotta love those fun Technique Tuesday Sassy sentiments! : )

Of course, I was so excited to send it to them, I was already writing in it when I remembered to take a pic… just ignore my scribbling (thx)!

I love that stamped sentiment: Did you ever notice there are no recipes for leftover chocolate?! So true! (and you notice the chocolate is gone except for the wrapper and a couple of crumbs)

On the back, there’s a little pocket for a gift card for them to get some new ‘skinny’ clothes:


  • Penny Black: 9 Lives stamp set
  • Technique Tuesday: Sassy Bday & Sassy Hangry
  • Spellbinders: Labels 40 Decorative Accents dies

  1. Too too cute. I can agree with this cutie from Penny Black! Beautiful intricate design with a cute critter and equally cute message. Thank you for playing along with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!
