My card features two stamps from one of the upcoming releases, Nine Lives. This set is filled with the cutest cats you can imagine and it comes with super fun sentiments, too! Much like last month's release of Woofers & Tweeters which was perfect for canine lovers, this one will thrill the feline lovers out there.

Our cat has been known to destroy a thing or two with her nails. She wears nail covers now because my husband knows that I will choose the furniture over the cat. LOL I used a punch and two dies to create the ground and the notebook die represents a sort of shredded carpet. The washi tape was a Christmas gift from a cat-lover friend of mine so I'll send this to her as a thank you. Fitting, don't you think? ;)


Thanks so much for stopping by today. Remember to check back here on Saturday to see if you are the lucky winner of Nine Lives!

Love your card! It's so cute!
What's a nail cover? lol.... My cat tries to be naughty sometimes too and scratches.. tho she will stop when I stare at her... she's smart that way... haha. The only time I can't stop her is when I'm asleep. She used to sleep with us but now that I'm pregnant, we are training her to sleep in the living room instead of the bed... :)
