Champagne Cocktail anyone?

Living with Vince, cat hair has become a third condiment in this house - salt, pepper, cat hair.  It's very odd having a meal out as it tends to be fur free.  I guess it is another form of fibre in my diet!!  Anyway, this little stamp made me think of that:

Ingredients for this card:
Stamped Image  Crafters Companion Strawberry Kisses - Party Girl
Medium  Tim Holtz Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sentiment  Personal Impressions
Corner Stamp  Lili Of The Valley
Extras  White cardstock edged in Poppy Promarker, red Sakura glaze pen for cherries

There are times, during an evening when I'm sat with a cup of tea beside me, that Vince will sit on the arm of the chair and the tip of his tail dips in the tea (it's never that hot, I can't drink scalding hot tea).  He will then wash his tail.  Wonder what he would do with a Champagne Cocktail??

In his favourite sticky-beak spot on the back of the sofa (with his own duvet throw)!

Hugs, Sxx

Lovely card, Squirrel.
I think you can be addicted to cat hair. I have two beautiful British Shorthair cats, so I recognize the problem!!

I must have this stamp!!! Must have! Too cute. We had a cat who would stick her head into every glass and more often than not knock it over. So you'll see us leave our drinks in glasses up high even though that cat has passed on to the great catnip garden in the sky. We currently have cats who are less interested in drinking glasses than in weaponry. They can launch a cat hair up your nose from the other room. Heck, they can do it from across town! I say put them in charge of national defense!!!!

LOL! Love it! Sir Vincent looks quite regal from his perch. Have to say I've missed the cat hair in my diet...used to have quite a bit of it. Give him a pet for me, would you?

Chrissy said...

Hey, just poking around your blog some. I mean, if you are 3 now I have a lot of back log to peek out. I went and bought this stamp set not too long ago! I haven't used it yet but this card is what made me go track it down.... I love looking at blogs for inspiration, but dang, it is so hard on the wallet!
