Hi, you sweet girls!
When my middle child, Blake, who is 21 now, was 5 years old, he wanted a kitty for his birthday present.

I took him to the local humane society and followed that darling child around the cat and kitten pens two times while he studiously made his decision.
When he had finally decided which kitty he wanted, I asked him what he wanted to name her.
After several moments of quiet contemplation he said in his soft little voice, "I think Sweet and Pretty Kitty".

You know, sometimes you look at something and you can't help but think "sweet and pretty".
That's what I thought when I looked at these cards I finished this evening.

Fabulous papers, beautiful tags, precious girls, rub-on swirls, ribbon, lace and flowers, rick-rack and tiny seed beads {on the card below}.
I wish you could see the detail in the cards better, but, you know what?
I don't have the time nor do I have the inclination to take more photos and all that entails to show you the detail.....just look closer at the pictures. LOL
That's my hint that I'm exhausted and am going to bed.

I am reading a fabulous book *Tiger's Child by Torey Hayden* and my Mary mag is waiting for me to devour it!
So, goodnight, my sweet friends.

Thank you for reading my blog post!
And, if you're a regular reader, thank you for your support.

I think "Sweet and pretty kitty" is a perfect name! I love it! Because of my recent mousing adventures I am seriously considering getting a kitty or two, but need to wait until after I return from Art & Soul in October. Since I always seem to call kitties "Maui" (not because of the place but because of what cats say when they talk) I think that is what I must name one of them.

Of course I love this story, being the big cat love that I am, with one in my lap this very second, I love the tags too.

I hope you are well. Checking in on you because you are in TX and I don't know exactly where, but I hope it isn't anywhere close to the coast.

Have a great weekend and please touch base with me when you can!

Sister, I love your sweet and pretty tags! Did you make them that pink color, cause it is a fabulous shade.

BTW, I'm having a give-away over on my blog in honor of my 100th post (took me nearly 2 years to get here). Come on by!
