Sweet Siamese...Cute Kitten Digi from Doodle Pantry

Hello Friends - WHEW! what a crazy week.  I know you have probably all heard about the east coast earthquake on Tuesday but I just can't help but mention it because it was one of the scariest experiences of my life!  It occurred at 1:51 in the afternoon and Dan and I were off of work because the backsplash was being installed in the kitchen (finally and I love it!  I'll share that in the next couple days too).  I had gone up to my craft room to work on some projects when I realized my desk was vibrating...then it began to shake... I could hear a rumbling, roaring sound but I could not figure out what was happening.  When the shelves started to rock I flew out of my room so fast, just to run into my husband who was coming to get me!  By now the whole house is shaking and we could hear things falling and then...*poof* it stopped.  We ran out to see if the tile guy was ok; he had been outside cutting the tile and he was completely unaffected.  He said a few years ago in his country, there was a 7.5 earthquake making our little 5.9 seem small to him!  That was comforting, actually.  Dan and I headed back in to see what all had been damaged.  Out of all the pictures and things that fell off their shelves, the only thing that didn't make it was the mirror above our fireplace.  Trust me, I have no problem with that - I feel lucky it wasn't worse and I hope to NEVER go through anything like that again!  

*So* on to my kitty card!  I just love the Cute Kitten digi from Doodle Pantry and have had a ball coloring it all different ways.  This little Siamese was one of the first I colored but it has taken me until now to get it on a card and add a sentiment, etc.  My sister loves Siamese cats and has owned a few over the years so I am hoping she likes this little guy :)  He is colored with copics and I used one of the darling sentiments that comes with the digi set.  My design team term with Doodle Pantry ends next week and I sure have had a wonderful time creating with Laurie's wonderful images.

I hope you have a wonderful Friday (and an earthquake-free one, at that)!  <3 Lisa
