Cupboard Love

... or to be more precise, fridge love. Anyone who has ever been owned by a cat will know what I'm talking about. You try to open the fridge silently - and all of a sudden there's a little pair of golden eyes looking up at you imploringly.....

So, for my second entry to Naughty or Nice Challenges Food and Drink themed challenge this month, I thought I would depict that undying love between a cat and a refrigerator. I cut a DL card to resemble a well known brand of fridge, and used peel off letters, in a very similar font to that the brand uses, to label the fridge "FOOD" in the place where the brand name normally goes. The door handle part is cut from a scrap of the peel off waste to make sure it matches.

The sentiment is a Dylusions stamp that I think sums up the situation perfectly, and the hungry cat is stamped with an image from the Katzelkraft "Chats Russes" set and coloured with Promarkers. Are you impressed with the cutting out? I reckon it looks almost as if I'd used a die!

  1. Totally brilliant Jane! I do love your humerous cards :) And that fussy cutting is amazing - I don't always buy the matching dies that many stamps seem to have these days (they're often a lot more expensive than the stamps) but when a stamp is as tricky-woo as this one I would be hoping for a die! Well done you!

    Have you recovered from that thunder and lightning storm last night yet? I feel quite discombobulated today from lack of sleep!

  3. There's not greater love than that between a cat and the fridge... Although the cat and the sofa comes very close! Your card is fabulous, Jane. You are so witty! Thanks for entertaining us at NoN again, Jo x

  6. So very true! Although my cat also loves our fridge because so many of his toys fit under it, then he can watch us dig them out for him. What a great idea to create a fridge-shaped card; and yes, awesome fussy cutting. Thanks for joining us at Naughty or Nice Challenges, sistah!
