Yoga ... Wine ...

I'm in challenge mode today, trying to get some things posted before the cut-off.

A few days ago, I got wind of a Cat Lovers' Hop, and it was extended through today. I was already in cat mode due to my guest gig this fortnight with the lovely Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers, so I went with it and made two more cat cards.

Here's the first one:

I've combined a few challenges here. First, the sketch is from a new-to-me challenge, As You See It:

The plaid strip, left over from making this card, is for the current Curtain Call challenge:

And one last entry is Just Add Ink, to use anything with a W. I'm counting the word wine. :)

Here's my card again, since I've loaded up with challenge graphics:

I thought this Paper Smooches cat was perfect for this sentiment that jumped into my shopping basket a few weeks ago. The greenish circle was also sitting on my desk, and the jury is still out on whether it's close enough to the green in the plaid or not. It might be too blue. Oh, well.

I know exactly who's getting this card, too. ;)

I'm off to link up. Thanks for stopping by!

PS: My second cat card is in the next post. Gotta keep Inlinkz happy.

Some of the stuff I used: SU black card stock, Copics (0, RV11, C00, C0), and the following:


  1. Haha, I love this! What a fabulous sentiment! The kitty stamp is adorable! Great sketch too!

  2. Oh, this is adorable! I have a cousin who would love this. I love plaid.

  3. Wine, yes. Yoga, only by accident. Glad you could use that plaid again for this perfect card!

  4. Oh my gosh, I LOVE that fun sentiment! This little Paper Smooches kitty knows what it's all about and the thought of her in yoga pants cracks me up!

  5. Haha! Made me giggle, such lovely and cheerful one! Love the plaid border! Happy fun hopping!

  6. What an adorable cat! and I love the plaid! Thanks for playing along with us this week at As You See It Challenges.

  7. This is a pretty cute card, Leslie. I think the green circle is just the right colour to complement the checked paper. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week!

  9. Exactly! why do yoga when you can do wine? Lovely card, made me smile, made me happy to be alive, made me sad to not have wine, made me realize there is a reason we aren't allowed to have alcohol on campus....!
