Sleepy Knitty Kitty

Happy Friday, everyone! Are you ready for the weekend? As usual, I have to work tonight, but my dad and step-mom have invited the boys for a sleepover so hubby is going to pick me up after work and we might go to a late movie or something. He's been wanting to see the A-Team.

Before I head out, I wanted to share one last knitting themed card from the set I made for my friend. I thought this one turned out super cute.

The stamp is called "sleeping kitty" from Stampendous, and I just couldn't resist this little guy. I colored him with Copics to resemble a kitty from my childhood, the infamous Orange Peel Hawkeye Superkitty. Now that was a cat! I blew up an extra of the image I used in yesterday's post and cut out the ball of yarn and added that under his paw.

To assemble the card, I started with some cream Bazzill cardstock, and covered it almost completely with this great sketched flower patterned paper from American crafts. I used the blue flipside for some matting, and a sheet from K&Comany's Citronella 4x6 stack directly under the kitty. Love that lemony yellow! And what kitty doesn't love to sleep in the sun? I attached this with dimentionals.

I used another little strip of each of those to mat my sentiment, which I wrote by hand with a black Pilot pen, "eat, sleep, knit" to continue the theme that my friend had requested, and adhered that directly to the card.

For the final touch, I cut two tiny slits in the fold of the card and threaded through some cheapie $.50 pale turquoise ribbon from A.C. Moore. I forget the brand. I tied those in little bows and stuck a mini glue dot behind the knots to hold them in place.

I hope you like it! Have a great weekend everybody!


  1. What a delightful kitty! I have 2 fluffy ginger cats beside me right now :)

    I love the vintage knitting pics in your previous posts - you've done a great job with them!

  2. This is sweet. I think your sentiment is cute. It reminds me of what we say our cats duties are: sleep, eat, pee, poop, play.

  3. Very sweet, love the patterned paper and layout!

  4. This is so cute, love the dp and the image the way you colored is great. Have a great time at the movies.

  5. oh, he is so so adorable!!! The PP you paired him up with is the perfect background. Being a cat lover myself, this card just makes me smile.

  6. What a great card. I LOVE the colors that you used.

  7. What a sweet card! The cat with yarn is adorable, and the background paper seems to suggest a knitting theme, too.


Thank you so much for taking a few moments to brighten my day!
