Black and White Cat

Another of the cards that I regularly send each week to our Grandson who loves to receive post  addressed especially to him.  I've used the last of the Daisy and  Dandelion cat image ready-stamped designs that came free with Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine. I have also used another of the pre made card blanks I had in my stash.

Coloured using my Graph'it marker pens this time and edged with a silver gel pen.  After colouring I die cut using my Xcut Parenthesis die. Sentiment came as part of  a stencil and stamp set which was a freebie in a Practical Publishing magazine. Punched out using my SU  Extra-large Modern Label.
We were up to the letter P for animal jokes so these are just a few of what I sent in the card.

Q. What do you call a Penguin in the Desert?

A. Lost!

Q. Where do you find Polar Bears?

A. Depends where you lost them!

Q. What is a Parrot's favourite game?

A. Hide and speak.

Well I never said they were going to be funny.

A really cute image and card Valery and what a lovely thing to send a card each week to your Grandson. I bet he looks forward to getting these little gems. With new technology and texting the art of writing and posting letters is going to be forgotten, what a shame.

How very sweet to mail your Grandson cards. This cat is super cute. I have been busy making some simple cards for mailings. I need to get a carrier pigeon instead of the high postage costs these days. LOL
