Camping Cats

Hello Crafty Cat Loving Friends!

Today is the LAST DAY of the 2022 Cat Lovers Hop! It’s been a wonderful week, and I’ve had so much fun playing along. You can still link up your cat card today over on the blog, Her Peaceful Garden, and see fabulous ideas and inspiration! I’ve got a few new ideas for next year too! Check it out on Her peaceful Garden right here

I had a little time off before I started my new job, so I did a little cat crafting, cutting out all kinds of kittens, cats, fish, and fun little die cuts. This Camping Cats card was created from some of the extra tiny die cuts I hadn’t used for anything else. It’s a fun little card with a little R&R time for kitties!

This year the 2022 Cat Lovers Hop was a lot of fun, and I was very honored to be asked by our dear friend Janis in Idaho to join in, and be a guest designer for an amazing craft company that I love, Poppystamps! If you haven’t had a chance, check out the special post from Poppystamps on Day 2 of the Cat Lovers Hop, for an extra chance too win the AMAZING Whittle Adorable Kitty Kit! The kitties I used for Camping Cats are from the Whittle Adorable Kitty Kit die set!

Thank you so much for all of your sweet, positive, and joy-filled comments that all of you cat loving visitors have left on my blog this week! I would love it if you would become a blog follower and find inspiration in my projects all year round! I specialize in hand-crafted card design with layers of paper and color!

Of course, there are a lot of cats, too!

Thank you Janis for another great Cat Lovers Hop, and for all of the hard work and preparation you do all year round to give us an October filled with cats! Everybody loves THAT!

Thank you so much for joining us today!

Live your life in color!

    Your kitties are so cute, Michele! I think I remember meeting them in previous years and they are adorable! Your kitty camping card is so fun and creative! What a delicious fish stew they are cooking up (delicious for cats, that is!). Such a fun card, I love it!

    After a leisurely day of fishing, the kitties will be enjoying a nice meal of fish stew! Looks like they ate the meat off of a couple of them before they put them in the pot. πŸ™‚ What a wonderful camping cat scene!! You are a genius at making amazing cards with millions of die cuts!!

    Oh, Michele, I adore all your die cuts. The seafood gumbo is incredible. Very creative! I know the kitties are ready for a bite. Great photos of your precious fur babies, too. Visiting again from the Cat Lovers Hop.
