I’m often singing “Oh Happy Day,” and Cat must have picked up on it. For those of you who know my Cat (Punch), this won’t come as a surprise. To make a long story short, I’ve been out of town, and Cat was waiting for me in my craft room, sitting in an “O” on my work table. I happen to know this “O” was cut with a Large Letters Die. The “O” was covered with a green and white leafy paper (Whole Lot of Lovely), so I found more of this paper to layer on a Pear Pizzazz colored card base.
Next to him, was an “H” die that he wanted to cut into a sunny, yellow piece of DSP, so the “OH” in the song title would be correct. I’ll go ahead and show you Cat’s design. He’s pretty proud of it, and wanted to show it off in some challenges.
He admitted using yellow wasn’t his idea. There’s a challenge at the Global Design Project with a theme, “Show Me the Sunshine.”
He said this cheery song and yellow paper was as sunny as you could get!
The sunny, yellow paper had to be thick, because he wanted to sit on it, so I glued it to Thick Whisper White cardstock, before cutting the “H.” It was my idea to round the corners with our new Triple Punch, and raise it on Adhesive Strips. Cat was very happy with this idea of elevation. Before attaching his perch, he asked if I could add some grey Gingham Ribbon to match his fur. Why fight the craziness at this point? As you see, he got his way.
To complete the cheery song, I found “Happy Day” in an older stamp set, Perfect Pairings. The die from the Petals & More Die Set was just the right size.
Another confession, the layout wasn’t his idea either. There’s also a challenge going on at Paper Players, and Cat thought this sketch was puuurfect.
We need to hurry and get Cat’s entry posted, because it’s closing soon.
Before I took the photos, Cat wanted to add four yellow Enamel Dots, just to make sure it was sunny enough.
What would I do without my Cat? Looks like he’ll be around a while, because he’s in the new catalog.
I’d better get back to my craft room before Cat gets into all of my ribbon!
