Cat Lovers Hop - Day 4 (Kiwi Bonjour)

Hello, everyone! I'm back again today with another card for the Cat Lovers Hop! Thank you to Janis at Her Peaceful Garden for organizing this fun hop!  Guidelines and FAQ can be found here. I hope you will join! You have until tomorrow - Friday, October 30, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific.


I've been on a blog break and haven't had any time for crafting, but I remembered some cards I made a while back that I haven't shared on my blog. They are my "Honeydew and Kiwi" collection - it's a set of 12 cards, each one featuring either Honeydew or Kiwi (my cats).  I shared one of the cards from the set prior to the hop - you can see it here.  I have chosen 5 cards from this set to share this week in addition to the cards I already have scheduled! This is the fourth one. I want to support the Cat Lovers Hop as much as I can - I am hoping it's a huge success and that it will become an annual event!


This card features Kiwi and he's done a bit of travelling!  I covered the card front with patterned paper.  I stamped the French Village and greeting (both All Night Media) on kraft and layered with black and then green cardstock.  I stamped the French address onto the patterned paper. I fussy-cut Kiwi from a photo and popped up with foam tape. I finished the card with some puffy acrylic butterfly stickers.

I think this card fits well with Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge, where the theme is Butterflies plus N for Numbers. The stamped address contains numbers, as does the patterned paper, so I am linking up over there as well.

I hope you head over to the Cat Lovers Hop and join in!

I would also like to join these 3 challenges:

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

  20. It is really so special to have pics of your darlings on your cards, Kitty!!! And sweet Kiwi looks as if he is really posing for the photo!!! I always struggle to take nice photo's of our siamese, Timothy - he never wants to look at the camera for long enough - by the time I've got him in focus he turns his head again!!! Love the bg you've created - the patterned paper is lovely and the stamped image and address such a good idea!!! The butterflies are so sweet!!!! Beautifully done!!!
