Purrfect Birthday!

Hi there!

Happy Sunday to you!  I hope you are having an awesome Sunday! Are you ready for the Oscars?  We haven't seen a lot of the movies that are nominated, but we did see Hidden Figures.  And, we give two thumbs up for that movie!  I will enjoy watching the Oscars with all the glitz and glam.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed for an enjoyable time without too much political!:-)

Anyways, enough of that and on to my card.  I enjoyed making some cards today and made one that fit the challenge over at City Crafter.  I used a couple of stitched dies for the background and sentiment.  The kitten is from a Christmas set, but used it for a birthday.  The sentiment was finally achieved after three tries.  It is from two different stamp companies.  I merely inked up part of the words very carefully.  I was happy dancin' when I finally stamped it!  And, here is my card...

Well, that's all for now!  It's time to pop some popcorn and enjoy the Oscar show!  Thanks so much for taking time to drop by!

  1. Saw a lot of the interviews before the show started & we'll start watching our tape soon. Always do lots of fast forwarding, so don't watch it live--can only take so much--haha! We haven't seen any of the movies, but thought we'd like Hidden Figures so it's on our to see list. Absolutely darling card & hurrah for being able to stamp that sentiment as though it was made that way! Great job, Maria!

  2. Thanks so much for playing at CCCB this week with this super cute card. Loving your little kitty and all of that purple gorgeousness.


  3. How cute!! Love your design! Thanks so much for playing along at CCCB!! Hope you enjoyed the Oscars! What a gaff!

  4. What an a sweet card, Maria! Saw parts of the Oscars--trying to watch another show at one point but feel asleep. Woke up in time to see the most unusual ending of the Oscars!

  5. That is one seriously cool cat, Maria! Hope you had a great time at the Oscars :)

  6. This is so, so cute, Maria! I love your little kitty with his spots, and you really nailed the sentiment combo! The purple prints are super eye catching, too! <3
    I watched the Oscars last night for the first time in a long, long time. Very enjoyable, but I felt so bad for the mix up at the end! OMGosh!

  7. I watched the news this morning and they said there was a mistake by announcing the wrong winner for the best movie. I thought it was a bit hilarious:)
    Your take on our theme is great! I love that kitty and the sentiment made me smile. Thanks so much for joining us at CCCB! So good to have you with us!

  8. Super cute card Maria! Love all the stitched die cuts and darling image!

  9. Such a cutie kitty! The pink and purple are so festive, and third times a charm, because the sentiment turned out great! Hope you had fun watching the awards!

  10. Well I hope you enjoyed the historic mix up at the Oscars!Great background - looks almost like a home-made blanket behind your cute cat. Thanks for joining in at City Crafter.

  11. Your spotted kitty is so sweet and what a fun background you created! Love the hot pink strip with the purple. (The oscars had a bit of an Uh-Oh at the end, huh?)

  12. Your card is adorable! Love the different stitched panels!
