Love me, love my cat....

Hi guys. 
     Sorry for the missed day there.  I have had a hectic week so far and I am glad that tomorrow is Thursday.  Only one more day and then it's the weekend once again.  lol....
     Ok, I'm not going to dwell on my week thus far as we all have weeks that we just need to get through.  I just wanted to share a couple of really cute stamps that I have had for a while.  This first one is the sentiment stamp (Love me, love my cat...) well, when I picked it up at Crafter's warehouse when we went for our yearly shopping trip I just knew I had to have it due to all these cats we seem to think we can't live without.  lol...  So when I picked up this super cute 'free' stamp from Saturated Canary right before I found myself without Internet I just knew that they were a match made in heaven. 
     When I first started to color her I was in the process of trying out some new hair color combos.  That is the day that I came up with this combo and fell in love with it.  It is my take on the golden blond look and it has now gone into my mini SMASH book for a reference.  lol...Anyway, it took me days to color the rest of her as I just did not want to mess up her hair and her precious face.  (I know get over it, but you all know I am an imperfect human with a I want it perfect human's brain!)  Did that make any sense?  lmbo 
      Moving on.... I finally decided to use the 'pb&j' 6x6 paper pad by BasicGrey that I had laying on my desk and just went for it.  I hope you like her.  I wanted her to look all cutie pie and bring out the white as well.  Tell me what you think.  I am still striving to be perfect and some days it just isn't there.  lol...
     Have a great day everyone.  I will talk at you tomorrow. 
Hugs, Lisa G

Oh, by the way... Let me know what you think of the picture sizes?  I like to be able to see everything, so I put my pictures big.  However it does make for a long post, so let me know what you think about it.  Thanks!

Ok lets see, I love love love that blonde hair combo and this card is just adorable. I always do skin first since it is simple then if I mess up later no big loss. Like the cat prints inside the card too and hope this week is going better!
