Kitty Thoughts of You

Hello there friends,

I haven't had a lot of time to post or create, my 84 year old Mom, who lives with us due to the insidious disease of dementia has been in the hospital with a massive blood clot in her leg.  I just want to give everyone an encouragement here - I know we all love stamping and that usually means we're going to be sitting for long periods of time - try and get out and walk as much as you can each day.  Take stairs instead of elevators when you can.  Move your body, avoid such things as blood clots.  Movement doesn't require workouts at the gym, or anything exhausting, it just healthy for us to do that.  Just throwing that out there.

I've just begun purchasing Copic color markers and I've been playing with my stamps with using them.  It's a long learning curve, but still fun for me.  This card is one I made this week while playing with them and the GKD new stamp set designed by Theresa Momber over at StampTV, called "Purrr-fectly Delightful".  This set just makes me smile all over.

Stamps:  GKD "Purrr-fectly Delightful", by Theresa Momber.

CS Papers:  GKD Pure Luxury White, Vibrant Violet and Ocean Mist.  DP is October Afternoon "Ducks in a Row"

Other:  Copic markers, Prsimacolor Art Markers, CuttleBug Folder "Dotted Swiss", Spellbinder Oval Nessties, Stickles, 3-D Crystal Lacquer (brings out the kitty's eyes), ribbon from GKD.

Have a great day everyone!
