Best Friends

 Once again, my card today combines Tiddly Inks and the Ribbon Carousel challenges...both start today.
This week the Ribbon Carousel has another fabulous sketch for you created by the fabulous Danielle Lounds.  The papers I used are from Echo Park's This & That (Charming) Collection.  I ran a length of Mango Vintage Seam Binding down the paw print border punch as an accent color and then again to hold the dog & cat charms that are tied together with some Lemon Divine Twine.  Hopefully my creation has inspired to you play along with us this week at the Ribbon Carousel Challenge Blogwhere this weeks prize is a $20 gift certificate from this weeks sponsor...The Sweet Stamp Shop.   Your creation can be anything you'd like, just be sure you use ribbon, bakers twine, lace, thread...(anything that comes on a spool) and use this weeks sketch.  

And since Tiddly Ink's newest challenge theme is Best Friends, I was inspired to use 
Silver -  Play Time for my image because of our newest furry family member...

A very innocent trip to the Pet Store (to buy fish food) a few weeks ago resulted in me not being able to leave with out her!!    Isn't she GORGEOUS?!?!  Some of you may remember last year when I posted that we had a new puppy.  Sadly, she was biting and being very aggressive towards the kids.  So after a very tearful family meeting we all agreed that we needed to find her a new home...without children.  (Her new family tells us that she's doing great!) 

 I think people tend to gravitate towards the type of pet they grew up with, don't you?  So with that being said, I would definitely have to say I was a "dog person" and my husband is a  NO pets person (boo!)  BUT... she has totally won us all over (my husband included) and we are now  "cat people".  LOL!!  But more than anything, she has turned out to be a PERFECT fit for our family.  
She's suprisingly very social for a cat, and a total cuddlier who loves being with her "people" and SLEEPING!!  LOL  Every time I see her she's sleeping and one the kids is cuddled up with her in a blanket.    :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Trinket is SO adorable! I've always been a cat person, but don't try to take my dog away from me either (or the guinea pig for that matter). :) LOVING the card and how you colored up Christy's image. Isn't she just the most amazing artist?

Love your card! I always enjoy seeing how you color an image. Trinket is adorable. She looks like my ragdoll kitties. They are bred to be like dogs but in kitty form. They are the sweetest cats I've ever known.
