You had me at MEOW

You had me at Meow!, what a cute verse for this Cottage Cutz Cat Peeker die. I also used the Cottage Cutz Pocket die. The key to the pocket die is to remember the directions of the thread on the finished pocket. The die pushes the threads up, so you need to place the paper face UP on the die, in most cases you would face the paper down. I made the cat in pink card stock and highlighted it in hot pink ink and made the hearts in chocolate browns. The pocket was Bazill Bling white which has a cloth/demim look, also highlighting the pocket in the hot pink ink, whiped real fast so the threads would come back white.
I am sorry . . .but no live action with these photos, but I used an item on the cats head so when you hit the ear the head would bobble. The company is AWI at www.actionwobble.com . They were passing samples out last week at CHA. Lori and I split a pack. They work really well for this card. Normally you would have mounted the head behind the paws, but in this case I let the head bobble over the paws. The two clear disc has a plastic spring between them that you just peel the white paper away and there is sticky clear mylar. I think the company produces the springs for adverdising use.. . . . Paper Crafters are not afaid . . . you know if we can stick it!, glues it! or tie it! down in any way. . .we will use it!
On a side note, I had so much fun last week at CHA, Lori from this blog and I were ther doing demos for Cottage Cutz. It was so funny, we had never meet or talked before. . but were setting up for the demo. . she brought her Copic Markers out, . . fanned the cases open. . across the desk. . She held her hands over the markers . . just like over a crystal ball.. . . She gazed into my eyes and SAID. . . DO NOT TOUCH THE COPICS. . . I Said A! A! Yes Mama! . . . Lori is so talented . . .I learned so much from her about Copic Markers and really . . really what a nice person she is. . . . by the end of the stay . . she let me touch ""one"" Copic Marker. . . Thanks again Lori for all your help.

thanks so much for the tip on the pocket. It is a lot easier than having to sit with a pin to try and get the little pieces of paper out !

Just love the card.
