pink, girlie and lethal...

Good morning everyone, I hope your all well and happy...a quick update on the cute little cat who was visiting, its still about but I cant bring it indoors anymore it makes me mad itchy...I was scratching away for two days before it dawned on me what it was, I never knew I was allergic to cats, or maybe its just that little cutie, I rang the cat protection place here but they wont come and collect it unless its injured, so what am I to do with it, well I have taken some photos and I will take them around to the neighbours see if anyone has moved lately or maybe know who it belongs to...my Daughter would love to take it but she is the owner of a sumo cat who would just need to sit on the poor thing lol...it has taken root on my garden chairs, the one in the shade during the day and the others at night...the poor little thing is breaking my heart crying every time I go out...but the itch wont go away I'm afraid...right now onto my card for today which is pink, girlie and was lethal my craft room was a sizzling 34degrees yesterday and I could only manage this one before I had to get out...Phil did suggest a fan but a fan and loose bits of paper, ribbon and loads of layers is not a good combination with a fan is it lol...anyway its using this cute little Sugar Nellie stamp called Mackenzie, would you believe I found this cutie hiding never even been inked...I coloured her with distress inks and paper pieced her dress in the same pink gingham from Craft Creations that I used for the background, I finished with some lush green seam binding from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop, gorgeous colour isn't it... I finished with a mixture of pink and white roses and some tiny leaves...the fab sketch is from the Simply Stampin' challenge but as I didn't use a Stampin up image Im not entering it...I am entering it for the Oh La La Creations challenge and the Squiggles Stamp challenge...I'm off out to Town with my Dad today as he needs new sunglasses and shorts for Sicily, I hope its a bit cooler today as I don't want to drag him round shops in that heat...whatever your up to have a fabulously sunny day

Oh Mina, Pink Gingham, I LOVE it! Love the sweet image and how you've pieced her dress. Fab layout and lovely flowers.
Hope your kitten finds a good home. I never had any allergies until a few years ago started with a sun allergy now its to pollens,
no fun for an avid gardener.

Hi Mina,
Such a sweet and pretty creation!
Love your image and paper piecing!
Mina I would suggest taking the kitten to your nearest vet. I lost my kitten last week and was driven out of my mind with worry. I phoned everywhere where she might have been taken and the vets say they often have strays taken to them. If someone had done that for me they would have traced her to me immediately with the micro chip. She came home to me in the end so all is good now :)

Gorgeous Mina.
I agree with Kim, the vet will be able to scan the micro chip.

Beautiful card Mina, and well done for braving the heat to create it! Love the pink and green. Have to agree with Kim - whip kitty to the vet to see if she is chipped, otherwise I'd suggest Piriton! Hugs Sxx

Oh poor little kitty, hope your still feeding and watering it though??. Maybe it's fleas that's causing u to itch??. I would do as the other have said. Take it to the vets as it maybe have a chip.

Sweet card, love the pink gingham and clever use of ribbon to frame the image.
I've been sharing my yard with a cat for over a year, she won't come near me but loves to sit on the porch and wait for me to bring her breakfast, lunch and dinner to her.

Susan Flynn said...

Hi Mina love your pretty card and what a sweet little image!

We have three cats and still a mingy old stray came last year which we ended up feeding because it was so scrawny and then we found it dead on our chairs outside - oh boy was I upset!! These charities don't want to know do they? I find the RSPCA the worst and as a result won't give then any money anymore!! Well I'll just climb down off this soap box and get back to commenting now lol!! Hugs Susan x

Hi Mina....Beautiful card as always...

My friend had a kitty adopt them..but like you was allergic to it...but she couldnt find its owner so she put a little 'Cat Kennel' in the garden for it to shelter in and Puss has lived there ever since....

Another gorgeous card Mina!!

Rea said...

Cute card and layout. I love pink and green together, so this is perfect. So sad about the kitten, I hope he finds a home. Maybe he just made you itch because he is dusty and dirty. Maybe he needs a bath? Hugs

Heidi said...

love your card, the image is great and I love su too, your colour combo is purrfect. Thanks so much for sharing with us at squigglestamps. heidi
ps maybe cat has fleas and needs treating, in which case you may not be allergic at all.
