Happy Post.

I haven't shown of late the Happy Post I send to my Grandson each week. He loves getting his own letters and loves cats. I have gone through all the letters of the alphabet for adding jokes inside his card (was that a huge sigh of relief I just heard!!) so in this card I decided to add a jigsaw of a cat using my Xcut Jigsaw die cut. Just to make it more interesting/difficult I pasted a cat on each side of the card before die cutting.
Here is the card that I made.


The image is a free digi from Sliekjestamps and is number 315. I have coloured using my Promarkers and die cut using a Nellie Snellen Straight Dotted Rectangle. The card base is from a pack in my stash.
Below is the pictures I made into a jigsaw.





Just in case you thought you had gotten away with  it here is a joke from the A card I sent when I wasn't showing them here on my blog.

Q.     What do you call an Aligator in a vest?

A.     An Investigator.

I know, I know, don't give up the day job!!

:D Your Grandson is so lucky having you, Mrs.A!! Your thoughts for him are so sweet, fun and interesting. Surely you help his brain to improve art, language and cinestetics skills. The idea of puzzles is great, those cats are so beautiful and LOVE so much the cute little kitty on the milk packaging. And the alligator joke makes me smile :)
Well done!!
