Is The Cat In The Bag???

This is a very special post, a card I made for a friend who is going through treatment for breast cancer.  She had many cats and loves them!  So I decided to make her this card to cheer her up.  The cat in the bag is inside the card.  VLVS has a great love for animals, especially dogs and cats.

Cat's World  - 8077

This card is sort of a file folder, or if turned sideways, a recipe greeting card.  I found some polkadot patterned paper and cut a large label shape.  I adhered that to the card front.  Stamped, colored, and cut the cat in the door and quote about "warm-blooded furniture," and adhered them to the front of the card. 

The inside was done by stamping, coloring and cutting all pieces and layering/adhering them collage style.  Frame, cat, and lastly quotes.  Added a little glittery bird epoxy sticker as a little contrast touch.  "Cat's World quote," is part of a longer quote, I just wanted the 2 words so cut them from the quote after I stamped it.  The quote is mounted on lime green cardstock before mounting on the tab.

As I know first hand, cancer is a tough battle to overcome.  My heart goes out to my friend, she caught it early.  For all those battling challenges in their lives, I send healing thoughts.

Use your VLVS for sentimental, weird, friendship, steampunk, Whatever!  VLVS has it all!!!!

I will see you next month if my DT spot is renewed...keep your fingers crossed :-D
