Good Morning and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all you Mom's out there. Patti Ross here with the Getting Cricky post for today.

For my card, I used a really adorable paper piecing from Paper Piecings By Nikki.  I don't own a cat - but this little piecing just cracked me up.  I used my embossing folder and gently inked it for some contrast.  Added some stickles to make that fish look even more irresistible.  Of course, the amazing Kristal Andrews ALWAYS has the perfect sentiment!  The "CAT-astrophe" from All About Animals was the perfect sentiment for this card.  It is such an honor to be a part of this incredible design team.  These ladies are so talented and they constantly inspire me to try new things.  

I rarely do the same card more than once - but I think I might make another one and put another fish in the cat's mouth!  With the face on that cat and the saying "Dreams do come true" from Kristal's "Of Mice and Lil' Men" stamp set, it will be just as cute....   Or perhaps I'll raid my hubby's tackle box for 'dull' hook and fishing line and put that in the cat's mouth and the sentiment "Challenges are just opportunities disguised" from the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set.    If you are lucky enough to already have the All About Animals Stamp set, you know there are a lot of good cat sentiments on that -  "Paws-itively", "Purrfect" ,"Smitten Kitten", "  With Kristal's stamps you are limited only by your imagination.  

While I'm not really a 'cat' person, I have lots of friends who are and I had so much fun with this card.  If I've inspired you to create your own "All About Animals" creation, please stop by the Getting Cricky Facebook Page and post your own creation!  We just love to see what you're doing with Kristal's stamps.  I love being part of this community of inspiration!  

If you haven't heard, Kristal is releasing two more amazing stamp sets....with more to come!   Here's a peek at what they look like:

Thanks so much for taking a look at my project for today.  Have a creative day!
