Lauren Rose

Can you remember that it was only last year when I found out that my youngest grandaughter loved CAS cards, well wasn’t that an eye opener for me.

So glad I found out because there’s nothing worse than getting a card which isn’t really your style.

The kitten stamp was still on my desk from yesterday’s make plus Lauren’s birthday is so close that my card below has been designed especially with her CAS style in mind.  She loves cats … the family had four once upon a time but now only have two … so you can see how perfect the kitten stamp was for her card.

Chose red because her bedroom is decorated in different shades of red and looks really gorgeous.

No colouring of the cat as this would have been too fussy for her taste.

Hope she likes this card as much as the one which I made for her last year, see here.

The heart is from a PaperArtsy stamp set … see below … look at the long slim legs in the set.  Only used one of the legs so the heart could dangle from it.

The dangly heart came about because I was going to put a small stamped happy birthday beside the cat but Dot suggested a little heart.

Ran with the idea and the above is what I came up with.  Thanks Dotty.

    Well… most unexpected stamp combination! The uber classic cute cat with the out of this world Zinskis! Full marks for imagination Shirley, I’m sure Lauren will love it, it’s clean but striking, and, who can resist that kitten…

    I love how the spindly leg with the heart attached looks like a kitten’s toy – you know, like a ball of string. A fun card that looks really effective Shirley. I’m sure Lauren will love it, she would love anything that you made just for her.

    I think this is super super cute Shirley and Lauren will love it! It’s in a style that she loves and it’s got her name on it – it’s perfect! That kitten is adorable – I have three cats amongst lots of other animals and I see what Dot sees, a dangling toy to bat!!!! A card so obviously made with love, full of love xxxxx
