This Week Needs a Friday.....Free Printable Card(s)

This week needs a Friday....right meow!   Fridays can perk you right up - funny how that happens!

Fridays are also great, because that's often when we head off to Wichita to see my daughter and her husband.  I just got back from a quick visit and it was terrific to see them, but guess what?  I got to feel little Louisa rolling around making her presence known!  (In case you missed it previously, my daughter, Lauren, is due in late October and is having a girl - Louisa.)  We spent most of two days stocking up on things that all new babies need - such cuteness!

I've got some cuteness here too.  A cat card printable you can send to a friend, showing a little solidarity with that Friday lover.  Or maybe show a little empathy with someone who needs a break - right now!  

You can print this card twice to create a shaker card and then use the left over pieces to make another card.  Or you can, of course, just print it once and still have a cute card.

The fun sentiment is included in the download.

I just love this cat:  droopy eye, droopy ear and all!  I get all draggy when I need a Friday right meow, so I totally get it.  You can print this guy twice to make a shaker card and have some pieces left over to make another card.

This is the card I made with the left over pieces.  You could, of course, just print it out as is and it would be super cute.  But, if you would like to, here's how to make the shaker card and cat circle card:

I printed mine on 120lb cardstock.  That makes a lovely, stout feeling card.

These are the pieces to set aside if you're making the shaker card first.  (All you need for the second card is to make a card base.  Plus any embellishments.)

For the shaker:

Additional tips:

1.  I used double sticky tape to adhere the craft plastic to the front panel.
2.  I used a paintbrush to paint glue on the circle frames so they would be covered with
     glue.  That way the glue doesn't ooze and the sequins can't sneak out.  (You know they
     want to.)  I used double sticky tape to adhere the circle to the craft plastic.
3.  Place the sequins the middle of the cat so that you don't accidentally glue them to the
     circles.  You can also strategically glue a couple of sequins where you like them.
4.  It's easier to line everything up if the circles are glued to the front panel.  At least, that is
     my experience.

There are many ways to do a shaker card.  This is the easiest for me.

Keep this in mind when you or someone you know needs a Friday right meow!  
Hope we all have a lovely week:  no droopy eyes or ears, please.

  6. Super cute! How exciting to spend time with your daughter, preparing for Louisa's arrival! Baby stuff...such fun! I'm intrigued by the 120 lb. cardstock you use. I checked on (I'm in Canada) and the price was reasonable...hmmmm. Just wondering: do you 'love' it? Worth investing? Let me know if you have a chance!
