Purrrrfecting My Mojo

I just love this Cattitude set by There She Goes, all the more because we own a cat and have seen the sentiments in this set come to life before our eyes :)

I chose this snooty kitty as my focal image and coloured her with Twinkling H2Os so it qualifies for this week's There She Goes challenge of using no Copics or tombows etc..  Had to add some bling to go with the attitude and the horizontal panels looked a bit plain so I added some punched flowers.  I think my daughter (cat and pink lover extraordinaire) will be high jacking this card LOL!

The kids' baptism on Sunday was amazing. I had tears of joy streaming down my face the whole time, which made the filming rather blurry to say the least!  Their heartfelt testimonies of their lives in Christ, and wonderful affirmations by our Children and Youth Pastors were enough to wipe me out emotionally for the rest of the day.  We got e-mails, calls and comments from many affirming their words and baptism.  Thankfully I brought my make up with me as I had to reapply it before teaching the Grade 5/6 Sunday school class right afterward as there wasn't much left on my face LOL!  A very, very special day which I will treasure in my heart forever.  I am truly blessed to have such wonderful children :)

Gotta run, we are off to go Laser Tagging this afternoon - kids beware, mommy has a mean shot LOL!

She's such a cutie Marisa! So fun! I love the rhinestones along the scallops on the bottom too. The prefect touch of bling.

And how amazing to hear of your kids baptism too. What a precious event in their faith journey!
