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. >^.^<
