yikes...cats


I must admit that I am very allergic to cats and that in general they make me nervous. They seem so unpredictable to me and the claws sort of scare me. So, today when the gothic arch challenge for the week was announced as cats I thought no way can I do this. Then I remembered this dog and cat stamp I picked up used in my treasure hunting. I love the message on it, so I paired it with some patterned paper that I over stamped with a thank you definition and my friend words. They all seem to go together with this image. So, it's a simple arch this week, but really I'm surprised I did it at all.

Tami, this is gorgeous! I love the patterned paper and stamps. The cat and dog stamp is really neat. I like the dog side best! (I'm a dog person.) Sorry you're allergic to cats. We had one at one time and he was an OK cat. Not great, just ok. He was unpredictable. Sometimes we could pet him and other times he'd bite us.

Glad to see there is someone else who feels like I do about cats. So many gals posts pictures of their cats walking all over their studios and artwork and I just cringe....then I think, instead of auctions saying 'this comes to you from a smoke-free home' it should say cat-free!! lol!

What a fabulous arch, Tami! I'm sorry you're allergic to cats (and that they make you nervous). We have two kitties, and in general, they are very nice!

Oh, this is so sweet! What a great arch--I love the colors you chose.

I love kitties so much--claws and all! I currently have 2 kittens so I have lots of claw marks on my hands, legs, etc. They just don't understand that I am not a climbing tree yet, LOL! But they are so cute I don't even care if I get a couple of scratches!
