the old saying

who let the cat of the bag?
that was sort of the jumping off point for my card today! i saw the latest sketch at CAS(E) this sketch! and instantly thought of it!

i used the sittin' pretty stamp set from the alley ways stamps! i paper pieced the cat and fussy cut the ball of yarn! and i particularly tried to stamp the yarn so that it looked like the cat fell asleep after getting all tangled. 

speaking of the cat! it's in a bag! lol! anyone have cats? then you know how much they love to sleep inside of...well anything! but my cat does like to explore paper bags! lol! (he's sort of crazy!) so i cut down a typical bag that i got from whisker graphics to the right size and shape, and then sewed it onto my card! (making sure the little cat was peeking out! :)

i finished off the card with the sentiment stamped right onto the bag, and that's it! 

ps - here's a picture of my little cat, he was stalking me while i was taking pictures of this card, and his 'play eyes' were out in full force! (in our house, play eyes = attack mode). and yes, he did try to take me down by attacking my feet! lol!
