Hi everyone! It’s Day 2 of the 2019 Cat Lovers Hop and I’m popping in to share another cute guy with you this morning! If you’re a fellow cat lover, be sure to come on over and play – Janis has been working hard getting tons of sponsors so that means there are tons of prizes to be won!

I created an adorable kitty love card featuring a peek-a-boo window with an absolutely adorable little guy peeking through! I’ve had the MFT window die in my stash for several years and this is the first time I’ve used it! Not sure how that happens, lol!


The front and inside sentiments as well as the cat and coordinating die are all from Paper Smooches. I stamped everything in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored the cat with my Studio 71 alcohol markers.


I chuckled as I was putting this together and I’m still chuckling as I’m writing this! The sentiment goes purrrfectly with the image, lol! The shiny red foil hearts were in my stash left over from another project.


One more look… I absolutely love how this turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. I can’t believe that window die has been NBUS in your stash, it looks so useful and is great for this pawsomely cute card.


  2. love the cat stamp and the window die you used. great coloring on the kitty too! thanks for joining the lost coast design challenge.


  3. What a purrrty card! :) I am asking for that die for my birthday…..I can’t image you having it for years and not using. Shame! ha-ha It has been on my “want” list for a while….so I “think” hubby can get it for me in November (birthday month). Wink. :)


  4. Hmmm….with that grin, I knew that adorable cat was up to or IN to something!! I suspected he might be surrounded by canary feathers with a naked bird perched on the chandelier on the inside…..but that sweet Purrrty sentiment was even better (and less sinister!!! Ha.)

    That’s a wonderful window die. Thank you for showing us its maiden voyage from stash to desk! It’s purrfect for this fabulous card and I know you’ll be using it a lot from now on.

    Thanks so much for playing along in the #2019CatLoversHop!!!

  5. I want to try this type of card. I have the Paper Smooches Nine Lives set. I inked it up for the first time yesterday. Great card!


  6. Such a lovely aperture card, Leslie. I love the little kitty, but most of all, I adore the sentiments! I must look at Paper Smooches and get myself a set! x


  7. Oh, I really love the way you used the die cut window to make an interactive card, and the sentiments are purrr-fect!


  8. Thanks for linking your card to MTTC blog! You’ve crafted a ‘purty’ great cat-themed card! Becca/DT for MTTC
