Love Your Pet Blog Hop, Giveaway too!

IF you are looking for the Link Up Love Party click HERE

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having an awesome Saturday! Today is the Love Your Pet Blog Hop hosted by Abby of Scrapbookaholic by Abby. Abby is a new friend for me, but such a sweetheart. She really has a tender and kind heart. Today she is focusing her tender heart on animals. She said she cried when she saw the ASPCA commercials...(me too Abby!)  Abby says, "Because of those commercials I researched ASPCA and found out that every year the ASPCA has their "Prevention of Cruelty to Animals" during the month of April and encourage people to "Go Orange for Animals"!

Here is a picture of my Orange Mittens--my inspiration--wearing his Mardi Gras beads
Make sure you swing by Abby's blog to check her out if you are just starting out at my blog. She also has a great giveway over at her blog for the blog hop. She has Gelly Roll Sakura Pens and Treasure Box patterns.
If you came from Mari's blog Made by Momo, then you are in the right place..if you missed her, or are just starting at my blog, please make sure you hop over there to see her. Momo is very talented, and I know she has something fabulous for you that you do not want to miss!

My card is a very simple card to celebrate my love for our sweet cat Mittens. Mittens belongs to my oldest son Jasper, and I'm sending this card to Jasper (he is at my mom and dad's finishing up school), from Mittens. I think he will LOVE it! The cats are actually an orange color, but I took this picture really late at night, so it appears tan. I chose to use the flip function on my expression to make one cat the opposite so when I put them together, their tails would form a "heart". I used the Meow Cricut Lite Cartridge. The crochet flower is from Creative Charms.
PS I inked up one of Mitten's paws (with non-toxic ink) and he "signed" the card!

I Love You Once...
I Love You Twice..
I Love You More
than Cats Love Mice!

Update: Mittens has finally awoken from his long cat  nap and graced me with the pleasure of allowing you all to see the letter he wrote to Jasper. (The inside has a **Quick Paw print smudge style signature**)
Dear Jasper,
It's true...I do love you more than mice! I miss you...but these people are so boring and unwitty that I just tolerate them by taking lots of naps. Got to go..the little one is stomping in and might catch me.
Love You, Mittens
