Give thanks for cats!

My friends at Newton's Nook are hosting a fun sketch challenge. Since I have been dropping a bit of cash at my new fav company, I decide to play along.

I started to work on my Thanksgiving cards.mI have at least 30 to make, because I always give each one of my staff a Thabksgiving card to let themknow how much I appreciate them. I needed a fun card that guys might like... so... Newton saves the day. I used the "Autumn Newton" set.

At first I was going with some crazy complicated die cut card and then thought, silly girl, that is so not you- keep it clean, keep it simple!! I pulled out my washi tape which I havent used in a months and the card just came together. The two cats are my Zephry(the gray one- now over the rainbow bridge) and Pinkie (the spunky 18 year old calico). 

I also made the card with kraft.

What are your thoughts? White or kraft? I can't decide.

The Inky Paws challenge runs through Friday November 3 at MN CST if you can find the time to join in.

So glad to be posting and sharing after my blogging drought!

I like both of your super cute cards. I'm always drawn to kraft, but there's just something that really pops about your white card!
