What's New, Pussycat?

I made this for Leigh O'Briens TCP Tuesday sketch challenge on her blog. All I can say is that MANY pieces of patterned paper and cardstock were harmed in the making of this card! LOL! I finally gave up on making a standard A2 sized card as I just wasn't cutting my paper at the proper angles. This card measures 5 1/2 square and uses my new It's A Mod, Mod World set by The Cat's Pajamas. This set is just so retro and fun! It makes me happy just stamping with it! I've got a couple of other card ideas up my sleeves using this sketch, so I'm hoping to have a couple more posts before Saturday.

I also had to share this super cute photo of my boys from last night. When they were tucked in, they each were in their own beds. When I went in their bedroom to check in on them before I went to bed for the night, this is what I found. I asked my youngest son why he crawled in bed with his brother. His reply was "I wanted to have a sleepover"!

Thanks for stopping by!

What a great card! Love all those layers :)

And the photo of your kiddos is adorable - I wonder if there's something in the CO water, because Jamie had a "sleepover" in Nattie's room last weekend! LOL! The two of them "partied" with Nattie's disco light on...
