Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge #52

It's been windy and raining outside today so I'm in my craft room watching movies and looking for a challenge to play along with.

Wee Memories is having the All things adorable challenge today and that sounded like fun so I got right to work searching through my carts to find things that I think are adorable.

For my entry I decided to make a birthday card for my friend Stacy whom I call the cat whipser. I definitely think I got the adorable part right when I made this card. What do you think?

How I did it:
I used the Meow lite cart to cut my cat at 3". I cut the balls of yarn at 1 1/4" then I flocked them to make them look more like yarn.

I made the rug using a piece of scrap paper from my stash and punched the sides with a Fiskars scallop punch. I used DCWV Linen closet cardstock and the cuttlebug textile texture embossing folder for the center piece of the rug. I added some Tim Holtz antique linen distress ink to the embossed rug.

I cut a shadow of the placemat from the country life cart at 4" to use as a blanket then embossed it with Swiss dots cuttlebug folder and used the distress ink. The cardstock is from Cosmo Cricket Material Girl and Garden Variety double deck stack.

I cut one oval from SU small oval punch and the other oval from EK Success 1 1/4" x 2" punch. I crumpled up the larger oval then added distress ink to the top. I stamped the smaller oval with "Celebrate" from The Paper Company Studio's Greetings clear stamp set. I used "Happy Birthday" from this same stamp set on the inside of the card.

The twine is from Martha Stewart and the brad from my stash.

That's it! Hope you have a Sunny Saturday.

Love the flocking on the yarn- it adds a great realistic quality. The card made me smile; it is so cute. (And I am not a cat person.)
