QKR Challenge - Include a Dog or Cat

This was a fun card to make.  The calico cat looks like my Ella.  My other is a gray tabby, but I decided to go with yellow.  The image and sentiment is available at QKR Stampede.

I colored this image with copics.  The paper is from my stash.

While I was making this card I heard some noise under my desk.  I knew it was a cat so I just ignored it. Well, I shouldn't have.  I have a large stack of drawers under the desk.  Lucy learned how to open them and pull out the ribbon I had neatly organized by color in several of the drawers.  She just sat there proud as can be with her achievement!

Interesting note.   I learned a few days ago that calico cats are only female because the color combo is carried on the female X genes.  Males with only one X gene cannot have that color combo.  Interesting.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Creative Knockouts  Make it Masculine
Creative Moments  Anything Goes/For the Boys
Little Red Wagon  Animal Antics

Too cute and I simply adore the sentiment! It reminds me of something my parents would say - and probably me too! Cute little kitties and colored just great. Love the calico! I never knew that about calico cats and them being only female!

Those crazy cats! They may have been in a scuffle, but they are still cute. Thanks for the cat info. Did you take a pic of Lucy
