Hi Nic a fabulous card, what a cute image! Love the way you coloured his fur. Your little fur baby looks so cosy in his new bed! Susan x

Janice said...

Thanks for joining us at MAWTT Nic with your lovely cat card. Think I need that one as Merlot is fairly a oops cat, constantly knocking things over. Love Felux too, I'm assuming he's named after the food as he does really look like the Felix cat!

Amanda said...

Truly gorgeous card, love the blue and grey colour combo. Hugs, Amanda x

Vicky said...

Ingrid Mason said...

Oh Nic, the doleful expression of apology on your kitty's face pulls at my heartstrings. The only time I've had the misfortune to see that expression on my boy Leo's face was when I dropped something that shattered on th kitchen floor. Leo was coming into the kitchen and I was afraid for his paws so I shouted at him to stay out. Poor Leo sat in the doorway with that very same expression and I felt terrible. We did make up but seeing your card has hit the mark wonderfully and beautifully.

Thank you for sharing this lovely card in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )
