I can’t believe that TODAY is the last day of the 2021 Cat Lovers Hop. Cat Lovers has always been one of my very favorite hops, and I have been playing along for the past 7 years. I remember the very first Cat Lovers Hop, and I am so proud of my dear friend Janis, a true friend of the kitties, who has cultivated and grown this hop every year! I’m already thinking about NEXT year’s hop too!
There’s still time to play along and get one more card entered for another chance to win fabulous cat prizes and find some great kitty inspiration. I know that I have picked up a few new ideas from all of the crafters and card makers who have linked up crazy cat ideas!

For my final cat card today, I am using a fun stencil that I WON in last year’s Cat Lovers Hop, Mini Flying Cat by TCW (The Crafters Workshop). I love this happy kitty, flying through the air! I used pink embossing paste on 6 x 6 inch patterned paper, then added a few tiny balloon die cuts.
Seeing this happy kitty flying through the air reminded me of just how very different my life was a year ago, at the end of the Cat Lovers Hop. Because of the pandemic, my roles at my job had changed, and I was looking forward to getting back to more of the things that I liked best about my work. But then, in the spring of 2021, I was offered a full-time position at a Children’s Museum, and I became the new Education Coordinator! Now my days are spent programming for children, and yes, a flying cat would fit right in! So many things have changed now, and it’s given my whole family cause for celebration!
I’m headed back over to The Cat Lovers Hop to see a few more great ideas before wrapping up my kitty stash this year! See you there!
Thanks for joining us today!
Live your life in color!
