Don't look, Mom! Hopefully she is too busy packing for vacation to check in.
My mother has always had cats, although my dad really isn't a fan. When we were little, we had many cats. I have cats now too; there is usually one walking over the desk while I am stamping. So, of course, a kitty card for Mom.
Mom is a big calico fan. I never really understood this, because calicos can be aggressive and mean. Wouldn't you know I have a calico and a tortoise-shell in my house now? I based the card layout on Mojo Monday #130, and I used Sarah Wills's idea to sponge on the stamp, using sponge daubers, for a calico effect. I could use a lot more white space though. Guess I will have to practice.
