A waterfall of cats

Made for Willie's birthday.
Willie loves cats & pink
I was fairly certain that Willie would not have seen a waterfall card before
It's been a while since I last made one, but I remembered how to, although it took me a while as I had to keep resting my wrist. Foolishly, I didn't consider the size of the photos & then realised the card was bigger than I had intended, so I had no envelope for it to fit in, & ended up having to make one with 2 sheets of 12" x 12" lol

The photo above is of Willie's late cat George,
I know Willie misses George hugely, he has told me what a character he was.

The photo above & below are ones I found on the web.
Afterwards, I realised how alike they are, though that was not intentional

This is my cat Mia, who has been up to mischief in the last month & has seemed intent on using her quota of lives up lol
Detail of the Marianne Creatables die I used, with pink grosgrain ribbon for the pull down tab

tfl, & for any comments you may care to leave

It was nice seeing you again to-day, and the card, well, what can l say, except a lot more thankyou's. Wonderful....!
I've a feeling this card will remain on the coffee table for quite a while...Up to Christmas l expect, at least.
Had 26 cards in all, still a bit of a celeb, but yours is absolutely..........oooooO! :-)x
AND....In my own language, Grazie Tantissimo..!
Fantastico.. :)
And, a big X for Mia, for being such a poser, well l should know...lol
