A FURRY GIFT!

Our sweet little cat is no longer with us but when she was, she was so very generous.






Our house is surrounded by woods and in the winter we often have tiny little furry visitors (field mice) who try to get warm in our duct work. Egypt, our cat, was very good at eliminating our house of these uninvited visitors. She would often bring them to me (usually at 2 AM) and would be very persistent in meowing loudly until I got up and acknowledged the "gift". I once found one in my shoe one morning when I refused to get out of bed in the middle of the night in response to her cries.

The GINGER BELL set from THE GREETING FARM reminded me of Egypt and her generosity and the beautiful paper is from the Happy Anyaversary paper pack. I used this wonderful sketch provided by Jessica.

You can use it too and maybe win some free stamps over at the FARM FRESH FRIDAY CHALLENGE!
Club Anya is previewing some fabulous new stamps that will be available on the 15th so jump over there and check out what the design team has created, they are an amazingly talented group and always have fun ideas.

My daughter is in marching band this year so we are off to the football game tonight, have a great weekend!
