This fluffy kitten was one of my mom’s favorite stamps. So it always makes me think of the many hours we spent stamping and gabbing. She would have loved this "Cat is out of the bag" card… as she had a sweet sense of humor. Am entering the card into a challenge that requires the use of Kraft & White. (Mine has a bit of gray thrown in… because I wanted the cat to look like mom’s favorite little fur ball, “Whatzit.” (My oldest brother named the little guy. Calling him in at night always made me giggle!)

The Less Is More challenge requires the addition of something real on the card. I was happy to help “get rid of” a few Hershey’s kisses so that I could use the wrappers on this fun card. (Note... the fingerprints were made with brown ink. If it was chocolate, I would have licked it off before touching the card!)

Wanted to use this month’s freebie from Beccy’s Place to make one more card before the end of August. I hadn’t planned on adding the vellum banner. However, I needed to cover up a few botched snowflakes (was distracted for a moment and scorched the embossed snowflake that is hidden.) A few embossed snowflakes remain, a few have some added bling from glittler. Just one reason that my cards often have several layers!

Wanted to make one more card to enter into the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge. So… pulled a few embellies out of my stash (note pad and pencil) plus added a sentiment (found here- skiptomylou.org/back-to-school-teacher-gift-tags) and layered all of them on a pre-packaged card (that I picked up at our local Goodwill). The SS Monday challenge also has a school theme, so am entering it in that challenge, too.
