I know it's Saturday, but I'm sharing a card created for  But first, I want to remind you that Topflight Stamps is holding a Moving Sale, so you really ought to pop over there right now to check out all the wonderful products that you can get! Think of it as your good deed for the day. You'll help the store by lessening the amount of stuff that needs to be moved. So it'll be a win for you and a win for Topflight Stamps!

Time to move onto my card. As you might now, I'm a crazy cat lady, What you don't know is that I have a bit of a mouse problem. They get into the house, the cats hunt them, play with them, and I end up having to deal with the result. So, when I saw the Playing Cat and Mouse Clear Set by The Card Hut,  I had to have it. It has cats. It has mice. It has mice turning the tables on the cat. Brilliant!

Here's my card, that I'll likely sent to a fellow cat lady.
