A little cat card

Good Morning everyone, 

Today im sharing a simple little card to thank a friend who sent something for Suki the cat, Suki is black so thought it was apt trying out my new katzelkraft stamp.  The design is by katzelkraft and just my take on it.  

Ironically as id added the ink splats Suki came to add a helping hand and they turned into drops, so this card was definitely a joint thank you from Suki and I.  Many of you know the state Suki was in when I took her on, a year on and she is an amazing healthy fit cat, so all those vets bills and TLC were worth it, she is also settling down and much less nervous.  

DL white card blank, black patterned paper, white card layer, i found the card easier to roll back after wetting it to soften the layers.  I had stamped the cat first so could get the right placement of the 'tears'  Ink splats and sentiment to finish. 

Items Used:
Katzelkraft Cat - Mini 002
Penny Black - Kool Kats (sentiment)
Distress inks cracked pistachio, tumbled glass & ripe persimmon

As many of you know its my birthday today and i have a lovely big pile of amazing handmade cards to open, so thank you to you all, i will of course get around to thanking you all personally in a few days.  I have blood tests to kick start the morning - what fun, but then its a day with the family, with lunch in a restaurant over looking the beach and sea which im sure we will get down onto afterwards with the children.  

Ive been spoilt with lots of crafty presents too.  

I hope you all have a good day too.  Hugs Emma
