New SU Goodies

I wanted to share a picture with you of my new "apprentice" - her name is Maude (she's Harold's sister).  She has always had to be in the room with me, especially if I'm in there alone.  She is not a small cat and she somehow manages to fit her girth on the arm of my chair (which is only about 2 inches wide).  She has to balance herself by leaning on me and while I appreciate the warmth on cold days, it does somewhat limit my movements.  When I got sick, she basically glued herself to me.  She had to be touching me at all times.  You need to understand, this is a cat who hisses and growls at everyone (including me sometimes) and she just mellowed right out when I was not feeling well.  I came into the room the other day and found her like this:



She's that gray ball of fur in the corner next to the keyboard.  


This is the first time she's ever taken over the desk too!  Harold is doing much better and is so much happier without that nasty collar.  He visits the craft cave too but doesn't really hang out there very much.

Stampin' Up! has a new Occasions Mini catalog and an upcoming Sale-A-Bration catalog out right now.  Next week I will be heading to San Antonio for this year's Leadership Conference and they are holding a contest.  So .... I decided to make some cards to enter into the contest!  I am not quite up to making swaps, but a couple of contest cards should be no problem, right?  Here are a couple of possibles, please let me know what you think of them okay?





Funny thing I found in my junkmail folder on New Year's day:


Don't really think it takes a psychic to be able to do this do you?

Thanks for visiting!

Funny how those little critters become "mommies" when we are ill.
My little Shadow used to be so anti-social until we got sick. She became clingy in her last year.
Glad you are coming around.
Your cards are lovely. I really like your first one.

Your cards are beautiful and so is that kitty. I can't imagine a home without a cat, or three.

Hey Chris..stoping by to give some good cheer to you. Won't be back in your area until July...Justin is getting remarried in a ceremony this time around and of course I'll be the mother of the groom and present. They are marrying on their 1st. anniversary. Have fun on your convention and let us know how it goes. Pat

Ooh Chris, what a gorgeous craft cave! Cats are so perceptive they are truly wonderful creatures. I am typing this with Clyde on my knee so I totally understand the restrictions they put on you!!! Jill x

Aren't cats amazing? Mine won't leave my side when I'm in bed with a migraine, and she seems to just 'know' when I'm not well. Maude looks like a lovely comforter! These cards are beautiful Chris! Hugs, Shannah xox
