Stampin' Addicts 2016 New Catalog Blog Hop

Yay!!  It is time for the New Catalog Blog Hop!   We each picked a favorite set to use and I went straight for the kitties.  As you can tell from the name of my blog I am partial to kitty cats and have had many many furry friends over the years.  Growing up on a farm we always had plenty of cats and kittens (and very few mice!)   Practically every childhood picture of me has a cat or two (or more) in it.
Our current "kitten" is a 23 pound pure white Norwegian Forest cat.   He is very playful... always popping up when you least expect it.  He has to be a part of everything.
Soft watercolors and hand-trimmed chevron paper
He gets into all sorts of trouble.  (He is a menace in my craft room!)
Baker's twine wrapped randomly around notched oval layer
He loves to sit on a lap.  (But he is so big he does not fit well!)
Lightly watercolored with Smoky Slate reinker
He is very vocal.   (Especially if he thinks you are not paying enough attention to him!)
Hand trimmed along lines of banner pattern.  
Kitty watercolored and popped up on dimensionals.
He is super friendly and bold.  (He has to greet everyone that comes to our house.  He particularly seems to love repairmen... he is right there checking out the dishwasher or the fireplace or whatever is being looked at.)
Just watercolored and mounted on patterned paper.
Kept it simple to highlight the soft watercolors.
