Cricut Artistry Kitty Cat card

quick and easy card Monday

Hello, friends!

Today, is the very first day of school and this year my little one starts middle school. Eeeek! I cannot believe that my baby is a middle schooler. It is complete craziness. I have to admit it will be nice to have the house to myself today though. No one will tell me how bored they are!!

Since it is Monday, I have a simple card that I made for the weekly challenge over on the Bitten By the Bug blog. This week, they wanted us to make something with a friendship theme. To me, nothing defines friendship quite like a pet. This Cricut Artistry cartridge has several cats and dogs. They all are in silhouette and have a heart cut out. Cute, right! 

I took one of the circle shapes included with Design Space and made it into a flat oval. I really felt like the kitty need a shadow of sorts. She was kind of floating with out something to ground her. 

If you have a Cricut Explore, here is the file: Cricut Artistry Kitty Cat card

OMG Your son starts Middle School sure doesn't seem possible...Guess time sure does fly by!!
Enjoy your day....and you'll probably still hear the words...."I'm Board" in your head ..LOL
Have a Great Craftabulous day. I love your card it is so adorable...I love that oval that your cat is sitting on...makes me think of the old fashioned oval rag rugs my grandma used to make but it being in gray is just another color for a silhouette shadow. Love how Artistry has the hearts on the fur babies. Thanks for starting my/our week off in a Fabulous Creative, Crafty way Melanie style....and I love your style. YOU ROCK!!

Okay, I cannot believe that E is starting middle school. WOW, wasn't he 6 just last week?

You card is darling. I almost went with a layout featuring the cat cuts, until I saw your card. My layout will show up later this week. You paper choices and COLORS are great. Thank you for inspiring me every single day!

Time goes by in the blink of an eye with kids-I was shaking my head in amazement at mine on the first day of school, driving the older two to high school. I just got that stamp set and can't wait to make something with the adorable kitty from Artistry! Love how your card turned out-it looks just like he is sitting on a rug with the oval! Hope you enjoy your week!
