Hello my lovelies... Happy Tuesday!
 Its time once again for me to post a little inspiration over at the MMCS blog...
 I thought I would use my new stash ( Mft dies and stamps) 
so here's what I came up with...

So , I used the freebie papers I discovered over at Docrafts, and began to put my card together using a Kraft card base.
I stamped out the Kitty from the "I knead you" stamp set & the speech bubble and cut them using the co-ordinating  dies. Then I coloured it in just like my own kitty , lol.... the Kraft base was stamped using the Pawprint background stamp ,and I stamped the sentiment there too , to finish. Kinda cute doncha think..
