The Sarah Kay card that Gato ate.... LOL

OH my I was so in love with this card when I finished it late one night last week. I just love this image - This is one of the brand new Stampavie Sarah Kay images - Jean-Luc playing ball with Claude.   I was so excited to ink him up and color him, and then to match him up with some new papers I got from DCWV - Linen Closet. Have you seen this collection? Oh I am so in love with it, I think I am going to need a second stack of this one!

Anyway.. I am babbling... I finished the card really late one night last week, turned out the light and went to bed. At about 2 AM I hear a noise from my craft room. A noise I have learned to HATE... our cat "Gato" she is going through a paper faze.  She loves tearing paper - and I know you understand how horrible that is for me!!! Well besides "paper" she really LOVES mulberry roses! And I was so tired I completely forgot and left this card out. I jumped out of bed ran into my craft room flipped on the light - just in time to see her look up with two of these beautiful roses hanging out of her mouth!!  We will just leave this story that she now is down to 8 lives -  Luckily she hadn't gotten to tearing the card yet, but I did have to add three new roses as she really tore up the first ones... but oh my this cat is really aging me!! Oh and you should see the corner of my new My Minds Eye paper stack!!!! Any ideas how to stop a paper eating cat?

But Jean-Luc is still adorable and I am really happy with how the card came out!

Here is a close up of those gorgeous roses... 

A few quick details about the card - base is Bazzil Dotted Swiss, pattern paper as I said is DCWV Linen Closet. Inked and Sewed down. Image is cut and matted with Nesties Labels dies. Mulberry roses with Martha Stewart frond and leaf punches. Sentiment is from Stamps by Judith, punched out with Stampin Up Word Window punch. And a Satin ribbon tied off with a bow!

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday - Hubby and I are taking Libbie and Autie to the vet for their check ups and "shhh" shots....   Then we are working on the property.. as the weather is gorgeous for the first time in a long time! 

HUGS and -

Hahaha....a paper eating cat!! She just loves what you are also crazy about, this is her way of 'working' with it :-) ! Good luck at the vet. Hugs, Yvonne

Lovely card!!!!

Kittie said...

I love your darling card, Michelle. I was most understanding of your cat story. My big male cat, Toby, has become intrigued with my paint brushes. He loves to throw them around and chew the brush bristles off. Argh!!!!!!!

Caroline said...

Stunning card!!! Love these colours and the image is just so sweet and the flowers are gorgeous. Caroline x

OH goodness! Pets can be so destructive, huh?! I had a kitten who liked to chew on the phone cord. I lived in a small apartment when I first moved out on my own. I didn't have a cordless phone yet so I had a LONG cord for the phone and just took the phone with me around the apartment while I talked. Well, that usually meant the phone cord was sitting on the floor all the time. So, my darn cat kept chewing on the cord. Broke through to the wires!! I replaced the cord 3 times before I finally put hot sauce on the cord...put some on a rag and wipped the rag on the cord...she never did it again!! LOL You may want to try that...leave a piece of paper out for her with a little hot sauce and she if that works!!

Love your card... bad cat! I'm thinking, put her in the laundry room at night and close the door? Glad the weather has improved. No more stuck boots!

Heidi Brawley said...

Awe! this card is Gorgeous!! Glad you saved it before there was anymore damage. I have a hound from hell. She is still a puppy but pretty darn annoying still. Eats EVERYTHING!!!!! I have like 5 SU markers chewed to death. Since I use my copics more I am not even going to bother replacing them. lol
But still irritates me to say the least!!! Hugs, Heidi B.

Ria said...

HAahhaha sorry Michele I had to laugh at the story of your cat cause my Calico Samantha did that always to me to. She started it with kissing and drooling all over magazine, then she went on to cardstock,polymer clay, stealing beads, cards etc. It has been almost 3 years now since she passed away(age 17 yrs) and I always hated it when she destroyed something of mine but I do miss her misschief ;)

No matter how old we will be we will always remember our precious felines :)
Your card is gorgeouss :)
hugs Ria

Kelly Schelske said...

Riet said...

So forgeous papers.

Hugs Riet.xx

Well no wonder she wanted to "help" with this card, it's gorgeous! The flowers look real enough to eat! No help in the "bad kittie" department, since I could never break mine of her bad habits. We don't train them, they train us! Maybe just keep the door shut? Of course that will make it all just that much more tempting when she does manage to get in there, and you KNOW she will! I guess just lots of catnip mousies!

Annie said...

Hi Michelle! I love this cute little chap (and he is on pre-order!) and your beautiful card. The puppies would chew the corners of paper packs (along with chair legs, baskets etc) when they were teething, fortunately they outgrew the habit. Are Gato's teeth ok? could it be that a visit to the dentist might be the solution? If animals have toothache they chew to relieve the pain (unless it's really bad of course).
hugs, annie x

One thing I want to discuss is that fat burning plan fast
can be achieved by the suitable diet and exercise.
Someone's size not simply affects appearance, but also the entire quality of life. Self-esteem, despression symptoms, health risks, in addition to physical ability are influenced in cess weight. It is possible to just make everything right but still gain. Should this happen, a medical problem may be the culprit. While too much food and never enough exercising are usually guilty, common health concerns and widespread prescriptions can easily greatly help to increase size. I am grateful for your post

I needed to write you the little bit of note just to thank you very
much yet again for your nice information you have featured above.

It has been strangely open-handed of people like you to offer unreservedly exactly what a number of us
could have made available for an e-book to end up making some profit
for their own end, particularly considering the fact that you could possibly have done
it in the event you wanted. The basics also
served as a easy way to be sure that other people have the same eagerness really like my personal own to find out a
good deal more regarding this issue. I'm certain there are several more pleasurable moments in the future for individuals that go through g post.
