Cat Lovers Blog Hop

Welcome to my little crafty puddle for today! I have another purrfect card to share today that is SO pinkalicious! 

The fabulous Janis from Her Peaceful Garden has put together an incredible hop this week with tons of sponsors and so much fun for all of us who love little kittens and big kittens and kittens of all sizes!

Stop by Janis' blog so you can hop along for fun and find out how you can play along TODAY before the hop is over! Plus see all the amazing sponsors and prizes!

I made this sweet pink card with an October release stamp from Stampendous, Laurel Burch A Bunch Of Love. Why pink? It's a reminder for all those battling cancer, celebrating victories and remembering those who fought hard to the very end!

A special treat for you is waiting over on the Stampendous blog with more feline inspiration to see, love and drool over. You're welcome.
