Feline Cat-i-tude – Cat Lovers Hop Day 3

Hello again and welcome back to day 3 of the Cat Lovers Hop!


Today’s card is a simple card that involves a little up-cycling. Cats always love to play in paper bags and these two are no exception!


That cute paper bag was cut from a take-out bag from JB’s on the Beach in Deerfield Beach, FL, using the shopping bag die from the Hop sponsor Paper Smooches.


If you’re ever visiting that area, I highly recommend their Fish and Chips… you’ll have plenty left to take some home to kitty! You’ll also enjoy a great view of the beach while you dine (More details and pics HERE).20151001_124431aW

Or, if you choose to go to the west coast of Florida, you can find oodles of cats paws shells on the beaches there! They’re the smaller ones in the picture below. The larger ones are lions paws purchased at a shop.

The glass has Tardar Sauce on it and says: “I didn’t choose the Grumpy Life – The Grumpy Life chose me. Some days I can relate!


The kitten in the photo is one I had when I lived in South America. His name was Gati (pronounced Gatchy). The white kitty on the card reminds me of him.

Ok, I guess I’ve gone off on several tangents. Time to get back to… Oh look – a butterfly!

Materials used:

  • Paper Smooches Shopping Bag die
  • Spellbinders Kitty Play dies
  • The Paper Company Franchise Basketball Paper (the textured orange cat)
  • American Crafts paper #36840 (the words at the top)

  • Misc. Cardstock, washi tape, lace, adhesives

I’m playing along with the following hops and challenges:




And now for today’s funnies… Since the card used the word feline, this one seemed apropos – at least for a science geek:


Not laughing? Purrhaps some puns…

Still nothing? Guess I’ll hafta put on my thinking cap for the next post.
