Day 3 of the Cat Lovers Hop 2019

Happy hump day everyone!  How are you today?  I’m back with my third post for the Cat Lovers Hop organised by the lovely Janis at Her Peaceful Garden.

2019 CLH Badge1

So far this week I’ve shared projects inspired by Pepper and Mr Darcy and our third cat Pepper is feeling a little left out!  So today I’d like to put him firmly in the spotlight!


Spats is our gorgeous tuxedo cat and he often hangs out with my in my craft room, sometimes sitting on my big shot cutting plates!  He is an independent soul, who doesn’t like cats but enjoys exploring in the garden and eating everything he possible can!  For my project today I used the sketch from the CAS sketch#344 and my Marianne Designs cat die set.  The sentiment is from a Stampendous cat phrase set.


I used a strip of starry paper from my scrap pile and cut a scallop edged piece of gray card.  I’m not very good with CAS cards so I added some paw prints over the gray to add some interest!  I hope you like my mini Spats, he is suitably aloof but I think is inwardly pleased to be included!!  Thanks so much for all of the lovely comments from my fellow hoppers this week.  I’m trying to get round to everyone’s blogs and I’m loving seeing all the talented crafters.

    1. Aw you’ve made my day with your kind comment! It’s a nice sentiment for a card and I think it’s true. Cat’s have a way of making us feel better with a snuggle and a purr. See you tomorrow for sure Nana Connie xx


  4. Hi, Jenny……Your Spats is indeed a very handsome fellow in his smart tuxedo and spats!! Wow…such a beautiful cat!

  7. Congratulations to Spats for getting his own card during the hop, as well he should! He’s a beautiful cat, and that card is so cute. I just want to tickle that chubby little kitten’s belly until he claws and bites me…as you know he will! Cats….. right?
