Stray Valentine Cat

I don't know about your neighborhood, but where we live in a closed community, we seem to have a run on stray cats. The manager who keeps everything in check is always placing cat cages out to try and catch the wild strays and sometimes they are pregnant. I believe last week she was able to capture 16! Talking about wild! She received a couple of good scratches and one bit her when she went to pick up the cage handle and had to go to get a tetanus shot. Okay now that I have set the preface to this card..LOL!!! I couldn't help but look at this image and wonder how could I incorporate it as a joke to give to Mary who has been catching all the cats! A sweet lady from SCS-Glittergal (Linda) was kind enough to send me some of these images when I had such a fit over her card. I colored the cat in with Prismacolor pencils and blended them and then used just a touch of Shimmerz Candlelight to highlight the heart that was by pure coincidence that it ended with a heart. LOL!!! The glasses had to be C-O-O-L looking and of course glitzy. The inside of the card has a typed sentiment that says: "Happy Valentines Day from one COOL Cat you couldn't catch". I think she will get a big chuckle out of it. She loves Coca-Cola so we got her a case of her favorite drink. Hope you enjoy this card as I certainly got tickled many times as I was making it.
