Nap Time!

Hi, everyone!

In case you are confused over today's post title, let me explain.  Mr. Brady always has to be upstairs with me when I work on cards.  Since he finds it such exhausting work trying to oversee what I am doing, he usually ends up napping on the chair beside me. (The padded chair that used to be MINE before he claimed it) If he gets really tired, however, he heads for the bed at the other side of the room for a real nap. This bed is always made & there are a couple of stuffed cats I have had forever which sit against the pillow.  Well, when nap time comes, he pushes the stuffed cats to the side, pulls the quilt down enough to lay on the fuzzy blanket underneath & spreads out.  He already has a fuzzy blanket on top of the bed where he is supposed to sleep, but apparently, he prefers the newer blanket underneath.  Can you say spoiled???

He also likes to lay on his back with feet in the air.  All the better to soak up the sunlight coming in the window beside him.  This is 20 lbs. of happy cat!

Back to business!  I have a couple of cards to share with my new Halloween dies.

This one was made with the Witches laundry die from Cheery Lynn and matted with one of the new Spellbinder dies.  I added glitter to the hat band, shoes & cat's eyes.

This is the same die, but I had cut a spooky tree and added some bats & crows from Taylored Expressions Gothic Window accessories.

The color didn't come thru on this one as the paper is actually a brilliant orange, but I used the same Taylored Expressions die for the cat & pumpkin and set them in a Spellbinder window.  

Today I'm working on Christmas again.  Happy Hump Day! Catch you later!


  1. These are just the cutest Halloween cards ever. I particularly like cat that got hung out to dry. Awesome! (Brady too!)

    I love your cards and I knew I would love your dies too! What a great job you are doing with your designs! But I have to say the steal of your blog is Brady. Oh, me, oh, my - he is a cutie!! I want to pet his belly!! He looks so comfy.

    Big Hugs

  3. Okay, smiling ear to ear over Mr. Brady. He must bring you such peace and contentment when he's nearby. I wish my stamp room was big enough for both me and the doggies. LuLu used to lay in there when she was smaller. I'd have to stumble over her or watch that I didn't roll over her, but I loved having her with me. Either dog would take up most of the floor space now.

    Those dies are just fabulous! What fun to make those awesome scenes. LOVE the laundry line with those bright, funky witchy clothes, and it cracks me up that the cat is hung out to dry as well. Tee hee hee!!!

  4. What a beautiful photo of your cat! :)

  5. adorable, cute, colorful cards Sherri! What cute dies and you used the perfect papers with them!

  6. Precious kitty taking a nap-how cute. Love the Halloween card. That die is so cute.
