For My Husband

The Cat's Pajamas

I made this card for my husband for Valentine's Day.  I love cats, and I don't think that's a secret to anyone who knows me! He, however, is always saying that he doesn't like them, but I caught him the other day, scratching Elijah under the chin and talking to him. Busted!
He's had to do a lot of cat-related chores since they took my knee out. I use a motorized chair to get around and can't easily get into the laundry room to clean out the litter box, so he's been doing it for about three years. With two cats, that's quite a frequent job!

This fun image is from Rick St. Dennis. He has a lot of cat images to choose from, among other great themes.  He's been wanting to start up a Design Team, but has been having trouble finding the right people to fill the remaining five spots (I'm already on board and waiting for company!).

The inside says:  "If I had nine lives, I'd want to spend them all with you! Happy Valentine's Day!"

Tools: Copics, Prismacolor pencils, Dimensionals, White gel pen, Mounting tape, VersaMark pad, Black ink pad, UTEE, Heat gun, Distressing tool,  Cuttlebug with Heart die
