Hello crafty friends!
I haven’t had a chance to share on my blog lately as I’ve been dealing with a very sick kitty. She has had some health issues for quite a while now and had just been diagnosed with feline diabetes in July. Now since then she has had one challenging health condition after another. The most recent scare was labored breathing which an X-ray revealed was due to pleural effusion: fluid around the lungs. This can happen to humans, dogs, cats etc. That fluid puts pressure on the lungs making it difficult for the patient to take a deep breath. It’s heartbreaking to watch a cherished pet go through this. So I called the vet and was insistent that there was a problem and that we needed a solution. They were able to drain the fluid and now she is on medication. Long story short is that the medications can cause problems as well. So we are still struggling to get everything working right.
Now this blog post is focused on my furry family member but I do have a card design to share with you today.
Stampin’ Up’s holiday catalog is out and one of the stamp sets that is geared for Halloween has a perfect stamp image for someone who is on the mend.
The “Trick or Tweet” stamp set is adorable.
I used a marker to ink up all parts of the cat image except for the spider dangling from kitty’s tail. Ink the parts of the image you want to stamp and omit the parts you don’t, “huff” or breathe some warm air onto the stamp and then stamp onto your cardstock. Voila! The image appears as you want it to.
If you like this card please take a quick look at the entire set on my website and tell me what you think.
I created this card for a recent demonstrator swap. I made about a dozen of these (all the same) and the organizer swapped them out so that I now have 11 different cards that others created. It’s a great way to have a variety of ideas.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog and if you are willing to think of my furry family member and send positive thoughts or prayers for my kitty it would be much appreciated.
Have a great Sunday and until next time Happy Stamping!
