Quirky reminder, It's raining cats and dogs!

I just realised I posted the reminder on Quirky and forgot to put it on my blog, so here I am! For my first card I used Cat on a Window and Kitty Cat Birthday from our sponsor Crackerbox Palace.
I love the Kitty Cat birthday sentiment and I hope my Mum will too, she has a Siamese cat but used to have a blue grey Persian - both rescues. The Mum stamp is a Papermania one and I stamped and heat embossed it.
There is a lot of detail in the Cat on a Window image which I coloured with ProMarkers, there is lots of depth as a result. The red polka-dot ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons, fish bones charm from stash. I die cut the sentiment and scalloped frame with Spellbinders rectangle dies.

For my second card I used Dog Sidney and Dog-gone Special.
I love this cute puppy dog image in his too big collar! I kept it simple and masculine, and added some  of my favourite ribbon by Crafty Ribbons. Again he is coloured with Promarkers and both the image and sentiment are die cut with Spellbinders dies.
