Another Midnight Madness Sketch

This card is based on Sketch #MMSC11 from the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge site. I have to admit I had a little bit of trouble getting started with this sketch. The whole "hanging picture" effect kind of threw me and it took a while to find an image that was the correct size. But, once I picked my floral paper and this Fluffles stamp, it came together pretty quickly. I used a large scallop decorative edge scissor (left over from the decorative scissor scrapbooking craze) for the bottom edge. The scroll at the top is a diecut that a coworker gave me - it was just the perfect color and size for the card. Gotta love when that happens!

Poor Fluffles! He seems a bit unsure about those grasshoppers! Fluffles does seem to get himself in some predicaments... kind of reminds me of a certain curious kitty I know:

There's Tiggy thinking "Oh! That's where the humans keep all the guinea pig stuff!". He likes to eat the guinea pig's hay. Seriously. The cat is weird! We were just waiting for him to fall head first into the chest! (He managed not to.)

Here is being held by "Grandpa". (Since Jessica is his "Mommy" we are prematurely grandparents. As long as this the only kind of grandchild I see any time soon, that's OK by me!) Somehow, Tiger doesn't look too happy about this.... (tee hee).
