Happy Birthday Cat!!

September is a busy month for birthdays and anniversaries in our family. Today is my brother's birthday, as well as my sister-in-law Catherine's...also known as Cat.

If you've seen my post about the drum corps I'm in, you know our 'theme' is cowboys...so when I saw this set from The Cat's Pajamas...I HAD to buy it just for Cat's birthday.

Tonight we have a party for Cat, since it's her 40th, she wanted a big party, and she's sharing her day with my daughter Alexandra - as she turns 1 on Thursday!

So...I know you didn't stop by to read all about my family, so I'll give you a little something to look at :)

Here's Cat's card:

Isn't she cute??? The 'Look Who's' are Thickers from American Crafts, and the '40' are chipboard letters from SU!, covered with Heat & Stick, then chunky and fine red glitter... (though it's not as sparkly as I wanted, because I accidentally melted dome of the chunky glitter when heat setting the heat & stick *oops*

The cowgirl kitty is actually on the inside of the card, I cut a hole out of the front of the card with my craft knife...here's a closer look...



The 'Ms. Sheriff' badge is from the MFT set, 'Ride 'em Cowgirl', it was stamped on Summer Sun CS.

Now for the inside....lovingly colored with my Copics...The 'Happy Birthday' is from PTI's Birthday Basics...

Well, I hope to check in tomorrow with pictures from the party and maybe another card too!

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!!!
