Inspirational kitties

When I sat down to stamp last night, it was with the intention of working on my MIL's birthday present. But I started by going to check out the inspiration challenge on SCS first for a jumping off point and ended up making this card instead. Funny how that happens huh? lol!

My card was inspired by this adorable lamp found on the Pylones website.

I made this card with another oldie but goodie, Bug Me Anytime which is only $5! The little bugs in this set are so darn cute :) Images are colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with OMS except for the middle bee. I paper pieced his body with the same DP used on the card. I'm not sure who makes the DP, I found it in my file cabinet filed under 'Yellow' if that's any help ;) This card also qualifies for this weeks TSG Challenge!!

Inside of card-
Yesterday was a little bit of sad day because our kittens just turned 8 weeks old which meant that it was time to find homes for them. We decided to take them to a great pet store near us that adopts animals out through the animal shelter. We took mama and all 5 babies in so that they could all get their first round of shots/worm/flea & ear mite medicine. Here is the last picture taken of the girls with all 5 babies. You can tell by the look on Chloe's face that she was concentrating pretty hard on keeping those kitties in her lap lol!

Even though I told Kylie that we were going to pick up mama and Ollie (short for Oliver) and Umma was going to come adopt two of the other kitties in the morning, she was still heartbroken that we had to leave them there and was worried about the other two that were going to be left behind and adopted out. The pet shop lady asked the girls if they would like to climb in and give the kitties some love before they had to say good bye. Poor Kylie was crying :(
Hopefully she will feel a little better once we get mama and Ollie back home :)
