Purrfect Birthday - IAS #113

 Good morning and Happy Sunday! It's a lovely day here in H Town, but so HUMID! I could barely breath when I went out to feed the kitties this morning. We have been having lots of rain lately, like for the past month or so. Mostly it's afternoon showers from the heat. At least it's not been a deluge like we had a few weeks ago. 

Butterflies are still coming. I have one in the hutch this morning to release later today after its wings dry and it won't have an issue with flying. 

This semester of school is just about over. I have reached a milestone - finished with my Applied Associate's Degree in Family History Research and will graduate on Wednesday, July 21! The graduation ceremony is virtual so I won't be going to Idaho for it.

Now to the issue at hand. Today I have a card to share for International Art & Soul challenge. This is the 113th challenge that we have done for IAS. Our challenge this fortnight is Use Thread or Beads and has been chosen by DT member Josephine. I have really been liking the slimline cards I've seen designers making and have jumped on the bandwagon. 

Materials Used:

  • Images - My Favorite Things - Housecats
  • Sentiment - MFT - Housecats
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Whisper White and black glitter; Xpress It Blending Card
  • Designer Paper - Whimsy Stamps - BW Cat Prints
  • Accessories - WR Memory Keeper - Sewing Thread; Whimsy Stamps Slimline Card Builder Dies
  • Copic Markers - E02, E04; G21, G24; R05, R11; N5

This one was pretty simple to put together. Be on the lookout for more slimline cards.  I hope that you will pop on over to IAS and see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration and then join in the fun. We love to see your own creations and ideas.


  1. What a gorgeous card Maggie - love your wee kitties, and your use of the thread is a wonderful accent.
    Stay safe

  2. Your slimline card is perfect for this scene of kittens - we owned cats for most of our 48 year marriage and our last two died just after my husband. I now have a dog! Different is so many ways. lol Hazel x

  3. Oh, hey, congratulations on your degree! Sorry I'm so late to read this, but you know the story. It's been a mess here lately. I love love your kitty card! Your super fun design is perfect for a slimline.
