Who Says There's No Easter Kitty?

I had lots of fun making this one. I used Mini Mono's
for the wording on the inside of the card and also for
the round scallop (I added tiny circles). The kitty,
bunny ears, basket and eggs are from Doodlecharms
(LOVE this cart). The scallop bkgd is from AE. And
the final cart used is Opposites Attract for the Happy
Easter letters. Embellished with a few different ribbons,
ric-rac, gems and buttons! TFL!

Being Tagged sounds fun...

This is what I've seen on Krista Norman's site (who of course I'm going to tag even though she's already been tagged :)

This is what you do:
1. Link to the person that tagged you and leave a comment on their blog, so that their readers can visit yours.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Share 7 Random facts about yourself on your blog.
4. Tag 7 random people at the bottom of your post, linking to their blog. Let each person know by leaving a comment on their blog.

Here's 7 things about me...
1. I live in MA (on the NH line)
2. Would rather live in a warmer area of the country (or Lake Como, Italy) but glad I live on the border of NH since I love to go to Lake Winnipesaukee for fun in the summer
3. I have a goofy kitty named Tyler
4. I finally have a great person in my life, my boyfriend, Scott, we've been together almost 2 years and we still like each other :P
5. I'm about to have the best sister-in-law anyone could ask for. My brother is a very lucky person...
6. I'm a huge huge (some would say obsessive) Mickey Mouse fan!
7. I love all music but have to say Metallica is my favorite band but have been mostly listening to Sheryl Crow, Nelly Furtado and Lisa Marie Presley lately.

Here are the people I'm tagging, I don't know them but admire their work! They are all very talented people!
Scrap Happens
Bella and Aidees Mom
Regina Easter
Sonia Scraps
Jaycee Creations
The Paper Poppy
Tggrfriend (Bouncy, Flouncy, Fun, Fun)

Hope you didn't mind!
