Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop

Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing a very special card I created for National Hot Cocoa Day that I am linking up for the Winter Coffee Lovers Bloghop! You can get all the details and link up your winter coffee inspired card over at the Coffee Loving Papercrafters Blog right here:

I just LOVE hot chocolate, so when I saw this stamp set from Newton’s Nook, I just HAD to have it! It features two of my very favorite things in all the world, hot chocolate and kitties!

But that’s not all! Simply leave a comment and you might be randomly selected as a winner of my very special blog candy!

I try to prepare a coffee themed card or two so I will be ready to celebrate the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop from the very first day, and then post every day! So, as you can see, I have missed a few days. Sadly, I had a very sick little kitty that kept me very busy about a week or so before the hop. On early Friday morning, my sweet 17 year old Felix slipped away and crossed over the rainbow bridge. This is the first card I’ve made since Friday, and of course, I knew it needed to feature a kitty.

Felix spent all his time with me, especially when I was at my computer. He would flop down on top of my keyboard, and I would keep moving it around and working around him, and he would curl up and soak up the sun. usually we could find a nice compromise. He would sleep on my right arm, allowing me to still click the mouse with my right hand, and type with my left. Goodbye sweet Felix, I will never forget you!

Thank you all so much for joining me today, and allowing me to share a little bit about my feline fur baby who meant the world to me.

Live your life in color! Meow!

    Oh no, I’m so sorry, Michelle. I saw your email with this gorgeous card and fell in love but when I kept reading, my heart dropped. Please accept my deepest sympathies – Felix was a beautiful kitty and it’s obvious you loved him very much. Please be gentle with yourself and take time to grieve for your furbaby. I still cry over my beloved Muffin and he’s been gone over 13 years. They leave pawprints on our hearts for sure. Sending big hugs…

    A beautiful card with wonderful images. I love that Newton set too and might have to invest in it soon. But you have my sympathy on the loss of your sweet kitty. I know how much you will miss him.

    Awwww, I was so sorry to hear about your sweet Felix. I lost our last kitty in 2017 and I still look for him in the backyard,until I remember that he’s gone. It’s especially hard when we care for a sick pet before they slip away because we grow even closer to them as we nurse them along. Your card is a wonderful tribute to your cats, past and present. Hugs to you

    Big hugs to you on the loss of your kitty. We always had cats while I was growing up but can’t have them now because my husband is allergic but my two girls and I get our kitty fixes with friend’s cat and always love a cute cat card. This design is so colorful and simple adorable.
