Card-a-Copia: Flutter By Wednesday #179 and Crafty Contagion!

This week's challenge at Flutter By Wednesday was a friendship card.  I used this fabulous sentiment - one of a series written by kids - for the feature of my card and added some embellishments.  I am still shooting photos blindly with my malfunctioning camera, so the photo is not as clear as it could be. 

Stamps: Inkadinkadoo
Paper: Sandylion
Ink:  Basic Brown (Stampin' Up!)
Misc.:  flower brad (unknown), ribbon (Stampin' Up!), butterfly sticker (Studio 112), photo corner punch (Stampin' Up!)

The upcoming challenge at Crafty Contagion is Thanks/Thankful.  I am offering a really simple card to do that was a knock-out with my mom.  Built on some awesome Fall colors, it also utilizes Cuttlebug's Swiss Dot folder and a new use for those weird shaped paperclips that came in Stampin' Up's box of metal goodies a few years ago.

Papers: Basic Black and Garden Green (Stampin' Up!)
Inks:  Basic Black and More Mustard (Stampin' Up!)
Misc.:  paper clip and brad (Stampin' Up!), flower (Prima),  Swiss dot folder (Cuttlebug)

After spending a good deal of time this morning brushing cat hair off my clothes in preparation for going to work, I got to wondering how much accumulated time I have spent on cat-related issues that impact me personally.  (See the trampoline reference for the literal "impact" of my cats!)

These all look cute but wish I could read the kitty one better as I am sure I can relate!
