Strawberry Basket & a kitty

Hi everyone - a lazy Saturday for me, starting at my local Hallmark store for this year's Christmas ornament premiere. If you're interested, go HERE to see my fave of this year's minis. I love my ornaments and wish I could put my Christmas tree up now - LOL! This afternoon I had a play with a cute die set I bought at Michael's yesterday. I was off to practice chorus music with a small group but still had time to shop - big surprise...

Supplies: DCWV A2 card; Michael's kraft;
Lawn Fawn Spring Perfectly Plaid;
Neenah Classic Crest Solar White
Stamps - Hero Arts CL663 Thanks a Bunch
Dies - Recollections Stay Cool
Hero Arts DI410 Paper Layering Basket;
Our Daily Bread Mini Tags
My Favorite Things Blueprints 20 - retired
Other - Copic Markers, foam tape, May Arts string twine

I bought the Stay Cool set with the idea of making fun summer cards with the icecream treats. Instead I diecut a bunch of strawberries. I liked that they lightly emboss at the same time. Probably would've had more depth had I used an embossing mat and run them through an extra time, oh well. Colored them & decided to pop them into a basket diecut from kraft cardstock and colored lightly with Copics. A little tag for the sentiment and some fun plaid behind - done!

I'm sitting here waiting for my bro & SIL to stop by and pick up their kitty. Misty has been visiting me for a week and I really enjoy having a pet around. Can't resist sharing a photo of her making herself comfortable in the living room.

Misty does so many cute things! I won't bore you with the video I took of her chasing and pouncing on one of her stuffed toys. Then she ran toward me and meowed like "look at me" :) Wish I could've grabbed my phone more often while she was here but she is camera shy! She tends to run when she sees me going for my phone - I'm surprised I was able to get any photos and video.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!!

Your card is lovely, Linda! The basket of strawberries look good enough to eat! I was at my local Hallmark on Saturday getting a couple of ornaments, too! So fun you get to do some "kitty sitting" for your brother!
