One Happy Cat

My breast cancer card for today features a smiling kitty sitting inside some frilly lingerie.  This is a Penny Black stamp and I love that it portrays a sense of whimsy and joy.  Joy is hard to come by sometimes.  But if we take time to do something we love or be with someone we love, it becomes easier.

This stamp is a large image so I wanted to keep the rest of the card simple.  I colored kitty and the other elements with Copic markers (yes, it's fun to color even when you're 66!) and matted it with some pretty pink stripe paper.  I finished it off with a strip of another patterned paper and a pink cardstock base.

There are many cancer survivors who deserve peace and calm and joy.  Hugs the ones you love and I hope it gives you much joy.


  1. Such a cute, sweet card. It's sure to bring someone joy!

  2. Adorable, Vicki. That is a cute image and you did a fabulous job of coloring, girlfriend. Love it. It will definitely bring a smile to the recipient! (unless of course you stash it like I do most of mine! LOL) Can't wait for the morning! See you then.
