A thank you, some crazy news, and a card for Sketchy Thursday!

First of all, thank you, and I mean THANK YOU to those of you who listened (read) to me ramble on about how I've just been kinda 'out of it' lately and just not feeling it, if ya know what I mean, and who have bravely come back! I promise not to do that for a long time.

And now for some crazy news: My kitty Titan got hit by a card right in front of our house yesterday evening. Don't worry, he's okay, he only suffered a fat lip (it's pretty funny on a cat), and some lost brain cells, which he obviously didn't have many of in the first place since he went running into the street when a car was coming. The car was going pretty fast, though, which is a completely different issue altogether, I will spare you from my rantings about that! I guess cats really do have 9 lives! Titan is now down to 8.

And now for what you all came here for in the first place, and that is my card for Tracy's sketch challenge! I decided to use another one of my little poppy 'gnomes' for lack of a better word to call them. I just love this little guy holding his little bird on a stick!
Edited to add: OH MY! I can't stop laughing....did y'all notice up there in the post when I was telling you about Titan, that it says he got hit by a CARD?!? I think I've been crafting too much! Well, he actually got hit by a car, not a card, although sometimes when he comes jumpin' up on my craft table, I do swat him with a card!
Thanks for stopping by!

Amanda, I am sorry to hear about Titan. I am really glad that he is doing ok, but how aweful for him to have that happen in the 1st place.
Your card is adorable...I haven't bought any Poppy kids yet, but I think I'm caving after seeing this card:) Beautifully done and a perfect match to the Earth love DP...you rock the Cosmo Cricket! Lovely job on Tracy's sketch challenge...TFS:) Tinla

Such a cute card Amanda! And yes... I did notice! I had to reread it to make sure I was seeing correctly and then I got tickled! Too funny! Glad you seem to be feeling better! :)

Okay you just scared the you know what out of me. For some reason my eyes zero'd in on Titan and car and my heart just sank. I am hoping up & down right now SOOOOO happy he wasn't hurt too bad. You HAVE to send me a picture of his fat lip. That's one I've never seen before on a cat.
LOVE your card. It is toooo adorable. That patterned paper was made for this stamp. I need some of these Poppy stamps. My darn LSS doesn't have them yet. I'm so glad you were able to play along with the sketch. See your mojo is fine. And yes I did notice you said Titan was hit by a card. *wink* GOOD ONE!! See we know what you were thinking!
