Cat Lovers Hop Day 6 - Guest Designing - Stampendous

Happy National (International) Cat Day!!! 

Welcome back to Day 6 of 

The Cat Lovers Hop 

This is my second Guest Designer spot for this Hop and its been so much fun! 

This time with a focus on 


Here I've used  

Laurel Burch (Cat and Feathered Friend)   

&   Cat Sayings (SSC1222)

We were really lucky that Blackie was very tolerant of our cockatiel Maggie and our Sparrow Chirp. Chirp used to swoop over him as a tease... truly, Chirp did not know how lucky she was!  

Blackie's thinking was 'Nope, not, Im off'.  Chirp was so confident!

DAY 6 GAME: Where Do Your Cats Sleep? Do they hog your pillow or do they have a secret nest?

Usually on the couch or one of the lounge chairs... here almost on top of each others... LOL, so long as there is a layer of blanket between them!! 

                                                    There's been such fabulous projects shown over at 

The Cat Lovers Hop...

Hope we are seeing yours there.

What an amazing hop its been... and I heartfully thank 


from 'Her Peaceful Garden'

for the mammoth and super job organising and sharing this hop with us along with all the other guest designers and commenters and the beautiful creatives who have shared their inspiring work. 

 I soooo look forward to this hop every year (and its in its 8th year!!)

So thank-you,  I tip my hat to you

A very beautiful and elegant card!!!
Oh birds and cats, that wouldn't work for us because all three cats are very good hunters and also love to hunt birds...unfortunately!!!

Ellibelle said...

Such beautiful work with the gorgeous cat image!
How interesting and fun it must be having cats and birds. Oh my, I think my cats would go insane LOL. They love chasing after birds outside in the backyard. But I can imagine they'd be more tolerant of them when living together.
How cute your cats look all snuggled up for sleep!

Wow, Mandy, you mentioned somewhere that you are not a card maker, but you certainly made a beautiful card! I love it! This kitty stamp looks like fun to colour! I like the shape of this card and the added leaves! Also the stamped pawprints and sentiment! You did a beautiful job on guest designing for the Hop!

Beautiful card and it is amazing that your Blackie tolerated your birds when they were flying loose. Hopping from the Cat Lovers Hop.

I have a set of Laurel Burch cats and I just love them So quirky. Your card is designed so beautifully.

Becca Yahrling said...

This is THE purrrfect card IMO! It has everything I love: it's shaped, it has text, an adorable kitty from Laurel Burch (L*O*V*E her designs!), texture, sparkle, and even a sweet birdie!! One of my very faves of the hop, Mandy!! So happy to see you again this year! And thank you so much for your kind comments on my projects. <3 <3 <3

Oh, I'm so happy that your Blackie doesn't hunt your birds!! The only thing that I hate of cats is that they hunt birds (mine do this and I'm not happy!!! I LOVE birds too!!) Loved seeing your little Chirp so confident! Hope that your other cat is so tolerant too!
Your card is delightful, such fabulous design for the awesome Stampendous cat, so beautifully coloured!!! The gauze under his paws, the frame and the lace leaves are perfect details! Fabulous shape and paper!
Happy Hopping!

Paperesse said...

Love this fabulous card, Mandy!! It's fun to see a card from you, although your Layouts are just magnificent. Definitely my favorite things you make!!
Thank you so much for Guest Designing for us with this lovely Laurel Burch Cat and Feathered Friend! Love all the wonderful details you added! The angled background text stamping is something I hadn't noticed until just now. It adds so much.

Oh this is so cute.. I love the stories about your cates.. Our cat is an outside cat and she sleeps anywhere.. but she does go away into the cat house at night to be safe!!
