Defining moments...

I haven't liked cats for years that is, until I crossed paths with her:



Isn't she a cutie? She was a stray lingering around a house with no intention to care for her. Her eyes were matted shut and she just reeked of infection, it was actually nauseating to me. Can you believe I was going take her to the Humane Society? I was certain she had Feline Leukemia ans she had to be put down (Shudder I know). Well I had my defining (redefining more like it) and rather than having her destroyed I took her to the vet and had her tested she's negative. She does have an ear infection and a cold so I give her eye drops and antibiotic twice a day, she's worth it! I named her Epiphany she's about 7 weeks old and so sweet, she starts purring when you get close to her. She melts my heart! If you have an outdoor cat you need to spay or neuter them not every kitten gets a chance at life and they go out in a harsh way!



Here is my card for the night, not as cute as a kitten but it will have to do!





I wanted to created a card for several challenges can you guess what the most of them are?
Penny's Challenges *wintry theme with use of gems and ribbon.
Creative Card Crew *doodling
The Pink Elephant *Thankful
Cupcake Craft Challenges*Snow Much Fun
Simon Says* Give Thanks
Cuttlebug Challenges* Thanksgiving or Gratitude

Well I hope you have a great evening, I'm working on a couple cards to post from my awesome kit I received from Torendi called A Taste of Torendi. It's $5.00 off right now and shipping is always and only $5.00! Go check out there other great sales too just by clicking here.

Way to go!!!! I just adopted a small kitten and a puppy. The kitty was found sleeping in a street in what we call the hood and the puppy was left at a lake and he kept running in front of cars! 3 dogs, 3 cats, rabbit and guinea pig! LOL The card is cute but yes the kitty beats it

Great card - love that little snowman and the colour combo. Love that little circle feature, totally brilliant!
Oh, that sweet little kitten and how cool will it sound when you have to throw open the back door and yell 'Epithany' when you want her to come home???? I have just had to turn down the offer of a champagne coloured kitten from my Mom's friend's daughter. It's ok because Fluff will be going to live with Mom's friend, but I did want her to come and live with me, sadly hubby wouldn't play ball.
Have fun, Jo x

Good for you to open your heart and home to such an adorable kitty!!! I just love her name too, so glad she wormed her way into your loving arms!

What a perfect name Beth! She is total cuteness. You are her savior. Your card is darling. I LOVE those little snowmen. Can't wait to see more pictures of Epiphany.

This is my favorite winter stamp set and I love what you did with it!

As for the kitten...what a story. I am a cat person so of course I was hoping for the happy ending. I used to work for Spay & Save in our area and it was heart breaking and rewarding at the same time. Love your name choice!
