Happy World Cat Day!

WoW! It is going to take some work getting through the last day posts! I was caught up when I went to bed last night. Annnnnd yet, I too made a batch of cards last night to upload today. I think I will just split them in two. This batch of waterbrush styled beauties is from Art NekoThese 2 are in a frame die by X-Cutand it covers a half sheet of 8.50x11 paper. It is big. I got the rectangle set too. They must make huge cards in the UK. 

Shapeabilities Art Deco Tags Etched Dies

Nestabilities Art Deco Astoria Decorative Element Etched Dies  Aren't these kitties just adorable? They come in several sizes too.

These lovely layers I did by hand with Mini Perfect Layers. I got both sizes of rulers and the Perfect Squares and  the Perfect Craft Ruler. I do a lot of hand cutting and it also makes me crazy when stuff isn't cut straight. I have had a few slip ups with them. It happens but all in all with a little practice these are wonderful tools to have on hand. 
Ok, off to the next batch...

WOW! these are beautiful stamps and I love how you've colored and matted them with the gorgeous die cuts. Really fabulous work. xxD dlmundinger(at)yahoo(dot)com USA

These sweet calico cats are just beautiful. I chuckled at your comment about cards in the UK being large, because actually I find it to be true. In card making magazines and articles from the UK, they always start with large card bases. I have trouble filling all that extra space so stick to the standard A2 card size that's popular in the US, or even smaller.

I don't know it from personal experience but I've heard they do large cards across the pond. I love the coloring of your calico kittens! So wonderful. I want to pick them all up and squeeze them all.

Each one of these cards is amazing - you've colored those kitties so well, they look lifelike! I would love to know what medium you used to color the cats ~ xo Christi ~ StampinDIva at Yahoo dot com ~ USA

These are just amazing cats and beautiful cards!!! Such gorgeous diecuts and wonderful coloring. I don't know why I haven't thought of contacting Art Neko as a possible sponsor before, but after seeing your lovely work I have them bookmarked to contact next year!

Thank you so much for participating in the 2016 Cat Lovers Hop!!!
