I’ve had this All Night Media wood mount stamp for many years, and have used it in its usual manner. (I included a photo of the stamp so you could see what that means.) However, when I found this fun cat related sentiment I knew that I had to use the stamp in an unusual way. A cat dangling from an escape rope seemed like the perfect fit, especially when the sentiment is torn from white copy paper, giving it a “ransom note” look. So fun!
Since you might not be able to read the inside sentiment, I'll provide it here. Because, well, as my Norwegian friends in Minnesota say, "It's a hoot!" (They really do say that!)
Excerpt from the diary of a cat: Day 751- My captors continue to torment me with bizarre dangling objects. They eat lavish meals in my presence while I am forced to subsist on dry cereal. The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of eventual escape-that, and the satisfaction I get from occasionally ruining some piece of their furniture. I fear I may be going insane. Yesterday, I ate a houseplant. Tomorrow I may eat another.
Since I like to give credit when I use an image or sentiment, I spent time researching its source. Didn't find the original author, but from this article, it appears that it is actually from the 1990's.

This card is another entry into Poppy Power’s current challenge-“Copy a Bloomie” i.e. their design team members. This one was inspired by the card posted below that was created by the amazing Kathy Jones! (Kathy uses a lot of Victorian colors and ornate dies in her cards, creating an elegant look that I love.) For my card, I used a free wreath digi from Beccy’s Place and a Fiskars circle punch to CASE her card.

Tiddly Inks current challenge is to create a card with “images that make you feel independent, empowered and positive.” Since art provides me with these feelings, the image (free from Tiddly Inks) and my computer generated sentiment is a perfect fit! I am also entering the card in Artistic Inspirations Challenge to use summer colors in a card. Well, I see summer colors popping out in several places on this card (along with almost every other color under the rainbow!)
