Take Life One Cup At a Time -The Cat’s Pajamas Get Well Card

I’m closing out today with a sweet kitty get-well card for the Cat Lovers Hop.

This month’s TCP Tuesday Challenge (#351) theme is holiday. This is a stretch, but in Europe saying you’re on holiday means you’re on vacation. Well, where I worked, vacation days and sick days were all lumped together, solving the problem of people calling in sick when they just wanted a day off. Since taking a day off in bed IS a kind of forced holiday, I’m entering this in the challenge…. let’s celebrate getting better!  : )

Ah, yes, sit back and milk it, taking life one cup at a time!

Tip: Take a little Brutus Monroe Alabaster pigment ink on your finger and run it over embossed details to highlight them.

Good ol’ Glossy Accents and a Sparkle Pen jazz things up a little.

And, if you don’t have the right color of faux pearls, take a Copic marker to white ones!

What? You were expecting something here before I sign off? Ok, I DO have another pic for ya….

Bwahahahaha… This is where I’ll take a picture of TOMORROW’s giveaway. You didn’t think I could have a giveaway on EVERY post, did you? The clearance bins were generous this year (plus I didn’t have a blogiversary party), but not THAT generous. Lol! : ) Now that I’ve got the bulk of them posted, there will still be another giveaway posted tomorrow and more on Saturday, so off you pop to play with your four-legged fur-babies and keep an eye out for upcoming posts! Meanwhile, you can comment on this post without having to come up with a specific word. : ) Likes on Instagram and re-pins on Pinterest are still appreciated! Thanks for all your support!!

  1. What a beautiful card base your frame die makes! Love the bright blue color and the cat with the ice bag on her head is awesome! Thanks for joining the Lost Coast Design Challenge!


  2. I love your logic for entering this card into a holiday themed challenge 🙂 You have some seriously awesome frames for making cards – and this lacy one is probably my favourite so far! Your get well card would bring a smile to anyone’s day – the kitty stamps you used on the inside and outside are so cute! (Love the slippers on the tea drinking cat!) The pearl details on the lacy frame are gorgeous too! x

  4. Awk! I thought I had all of the Sprinkles images but how did I miss this Get Well one? It also looks like it’s gone from their website..argh. Love this adorable card and the sparkle gives it even more purrr-sonality!

  5. Gorgeous shape would make anyone feel better. Those kitties are so cute, too. Whenever I took a “mental health” or “purrsonal” day from work, I swear I felt so guilty I did get get sick. LOL xxD


  6. What a magnificent shape, D.Ann! I definitely have to track down that Spellbinders die. It needs to come live at my house. Love the pearls and that sick cat image is just too precious! 😀

  7. I don’t have any of the TCP cats, but wish I did because I really adore this one!!! Super fun get well card. Love the way you tied the bow through the lattice work.
    Thanks so much for being a part of the 2018 Cat Lovers Hop!!!
