Feline Good

4.13.21 Feline Good BL

In my area of the country, we recently had a record-setting blizzard - but then we had record-setting heat!  My indoor cats were thrilled with the open windows and ran from room to room watching birds and squirrels. They spent quite a bit of time at the front door watching the birds on the porch light until I realized I should shoo the birds away before they decided it was a good place for a nest (although my cats would have loved it!)

So when I sat down to make this card and was flipping through my stash, the Grand Madison Window caught my attention because I knew I had a Whittle Cat and some Chirping Birds to re-create the scene in my own home!

I cut three of the windows and layered them for dimension.  Outside the window I added the Swaying Bird and some Chirping Birds (although in brighter colors than we see here in Colorado).  It seemed a little empty so I flipped through my stash again and saw the greenery that is part of the Fern and Easy Pop Up Easel Set.  I cut about a quarter of it and then trimmed it off to fit behind the window and I have a perfect green background.  (As a side note, I adore all of the easel sets.  This one is especially nice because it makes a fabulous easel, but there are also gorgeous flowers, butterflies, and now greenery for my window - all of which I have used by themselves on other cards.  I love dies that have multiple uses!)

If you look closely, I added embossed lines about 1/2" apart on the background just to give it some texture. My strutting Whittle Cat led me to the sentiment.  This cat was definitely "feline good" so I was thrilled when I saw that sentiment in Whittle Love!

The expression on that cat's face is just perfect.  Cats tend to look just like that - a bit haughty and definitely feline good! And if their food bowls are full and there are a few birds singing outside the window, life is perfect! (Of course, the same is true for me!)

Hi Kim, A really lovely 'scene' card, I adore the cute Whittle cat. We have 'haughty' cat and she has trained her 'staff' brilliantly hahaha.
Stay safe, stay well.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
