Shopping our Stash #70 - Fur or Feathers?

It's Tuesday, which means this is my second post for today!

Good morning again! Shopping our Stash has a great challenge this week - as usual! We want to see your creations using up some of your stash (natch!) and featuring something with fur or feathers! We're looking for critter pals, and definitely not insects :)

For all that I love my Abby-dog to death, I also love my cats....not for this particular activity, but this stamp is one I've owned for years that I don't think I'll ever be tired of:
Supplies: cat & sentiment stamps from Inkadinkado;
Palette Noir ink;
Sizzix label dies;
orange Fun Flock - Stampendous;
all papers from scrap stash!
As a funny aside, a couple of months ago there was a hairball...with 3 cats this is pretty much a weekly thing. I moaned about it, and Riley said he would clean it up for a penny. I gave him 65 cents, and he cheerfully (!) cleaned it up, and said I had pre-paid for 64 more hairballs. 

I am definitely taking him up on it. He has yet to complain about doing it!

Go check out what my SOS teamies have been up to for this challenge, and don't forget to leave them some love!

oh my gosh, this is just TOOOOOO FUNNY and also totally adorable, which... i have to say... if you had asked me in advance, "would a card with a cat and a hairball be really totally UBER-cute and appealing" i'm embarrassed to say i might have lacked the vision to say, "oh YEAH! totally!!!" lol! i stand corrected, missus!!! ♥

Love your googly-eyed cat! We just found out this weekend that Ryan is allergic to cats:(

Glad you found something to motivate Riley into cleaning the hairballs! Yick!

OMG! I must get this stamp! I'm sure I've said that before on your blog... Need more deets on it though because I can't find it on the Inkadinkadoo site.
