Lilac and Lemon Angel

Morning!

Hope your day is off to a good start...it has to be better than mine! I started the day by getting peed on by our cat! It was his turn to visit the vet and apparently he was pretty upset about getting in the pet carrier so he peed on me and the kitchen in the process. Oh so much fun! Then it was off to the grocery store, another one of my favorite ways to start the day! If anyone has any tips on getting the cat pee smell to go away, please share! I cleaned everything before I left, but I can still smell it now. Ahhh, the joys! With the way this day started it can only get better from here, right?!

I created this card yesterday afternoon to play along with some challenges. I started with this sweet angel image from Whiff of Joy.

I colored her with Copics and added some white gel pen highlights and then some Stickle accents. The papers are new from my local craft store and fit the Lilac and Lemon challenge at Papertake Weekly. I would have never thought to use this combo on my own, but I love it! So soft and feminine. I've used the sketch from Friday Sketchers and then embellished with some flowers. I think this card is perfect for Spring, so it also fits the challenge at The Pink Elephant.

I hope to get some time to craft this afternoon, while my corn beef dinner is slow cooking. By the way Happy St. Patrick's Day! Hope you have some fun things planned with family and friends to celebrate. Have a great afternoon!

Happy Stamping,

Hi! I have several cats and we use this product named Nature's Miracle for pet stains and odors. It's great stuff and has natural enzymes in it that breaks down and neutralizes the odors and stains. It is also safe to be used near kids and pets. We got it at Petco, I think. It has a citrus smell to it that is nice, not like that fake lemon smell some products have. It's more of an orange smell. I hope you like Nature's Miracle.

Oops! I was so anxious to tell you about the Nature's Miracle, I forgot to comment on your beautiful card. Love the lavender and creme color combination you used and the papers are lovely. Great flowers and layout, too. The image is so beautifully done and those Stickles wings are terrific.

Absolutely GORGEOUS card - and as the new owner of a few Whimsy Stamps, I can say I am LOVING this company!

As for cat pee....ick. Can't say I've ever had a cat pee on me - but I had one (she's since passed on) who in her later years, pee'd on my bed. Yeah. Nature's Miracle was the only thing that removed the smell. As one of the other posters stated above, it has special enzymes in it that deal with the ammonia smell produced by cat urine.
