Kitty Watching for TwoFer

Hi there.  I hope you are having a great day and seeing some signs of Spring!

Here's my Twofer for April



I fell in love with this surprised kitty at the SSAT show last summer.

I think he looks more surprised because he'd sat in the NBUS box
not doing anything for so long.

He played nicely though.

Here's a close up.

I went very CAS with this card. (It will be one of the cards in my May class.)


I put a little more detail into the second one.

The witches hat is one of the Crazy Bird accessories. Another NBUS.
I fussy cut it after smacking it with Versamark and clear embossing it.

This Poppystamps fence was perfect.  I die cut it from a snippet of white
and sponged a little ink on it.

I had lots of fun with this one.




Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

:-) I love your cats! Two great cards and the second card is my favorite! I have 2 cats at home and with the eyes of the imagination I can see how they would look in the wizard's hat ... Unfortunately, I can only see it through the eyes of the imagination, because my cats would sooner eat the hat than they would have put on their heads :-) My cats are real monsters :-))
Hugs,
BożenA

Oh my gosh are these ever fun! Love that image and since I do cards for so many kitty lovers, I may have to have him! Love that expression and what an outstanding job you did on the Halloween card. And no, no spring here and in fact we had snow yesterday. I just wish summer lasted this long.

Marcia HIll said...

OK, that cat takes the cake Bonnie...absolutely LOVE the expression on his face!! And the expression fits perfectly with the sentiment on your CAS card! And making one a Halloween card is definitely stretching the use of the stamp!! Two great cards my friend!! :0)

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Very cute. Love that cat stamp. The witch hat is so clever.

Bobby said...

I can't tell what that cat's expression is so he's perfect for either a scary Halloween card or a snarky birthday. Your twofer is the cat's pajamas, Bonnie.

Karen D. said...

Thanks for the big smile you gave me this morning mf.
Super cute cards...
xx Karen

Kara Lynne said...

You've really capitalized on that cat's expression for both of your card occasions! How clever to use that hat - I just wonder if the look on his face reflects his feelings about being 'costumed'. Such a great way to wish any good friend a happy birthday, straight to the point! Wonderful Twofer, Bonnie! Thanks for joining in the fun with us at the Twofer Card Challenge!

I saw this on the Twofer challenge - had to come by to tell you how much I love it! This is Twofer perfection! I also have this stamp - probably should brush the dust of it...

I just love these cards, Bonnie! They're so adoooooorable, and I fell in love with the surprised kitties too. The green for the eyes is a fantastic choice. The first card is simply a cute CAS birthday card, and the second one is an elaborate fun Halloween card. Love the detail work you've done. Hideko xx

Darnell said...

What a hoot that face is! After you played with him for these tow wonderful and different designs, Bon-Bon, didn't you start thinking of a dozen other fun ways to use him! WTG using NBUS and snippets! I always love your attention to details and how you know just what to add to even the CASest card, like the twine that matches his eyes and the perfect sediment for his expression! On the Halloween card, the embossed hat and the stain on the fence are such wonderful elements!! Thank you so much for playing in Twofer Card Challenge #4! Hugs, Darnell

Anita in France said...

Tee hee ... such an expressive cat, Bonnie! How fun all dressed for his halloween scene ... and very cool with those delicious green eyes, the twine really picks up on the colour beautifully! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Twofer! Hugs, Anita :)
