In My Defense Cat card


I can't begin to describe how well this phrase fits my kittens.  Today I found a craft straw hat with a chewed brim.  I cannot supervise them every second but what one brother doesn't think of, the other will.  This is a perfect card to send your favorite partner-in-crime to brighten their day.  I have a few that fit that description.

I'm Here For You Alzheimer's card


Alzheimer's is one of the charities that I do give money to because it did affect my family and I hope they find a cure for this terrible disease.  I've used this Newton's Nook stamp for breast cancer cards and heard on the news it was Alzheimer's & Brain Awareness month and decided to make this card yesterday. I even had some fancy embossed paper that I received as a gift from my neighbor that I used as the background.
