Just Magnolia # 27 & Sketch Saturday 73....M-E-O-W...!!!!!

Hey! Hope you are all had a great weekend! Yesterday I had to get up early and clean my house as Kieran had his Psycho-Educational assessment here in the afternoon. He has been struggling with learning to read but he is a real trooper,smile! I think he has Dyslexia just like me and my Mom! Well, I guess they aren't calling it Dyslexia anymore...so he may have a reading disability!
We've been getting the run around from the School Board...since Kieran isn't a behavioural issue at school they are only doing the bare minimum to help him! If I wait for them to do the Psycho-Educational he'll have graduated by then. So, I hired a private Psychologist...he is actually a retired school Psychologist and he does house calls and works on the weekend...how awesome is that!!! Well, the assessment went well although I am sure Kieran would have much preferred to be outside playing with his friends. He will have to do once more as the psychologist will come back again next Saturday to finish it off.
I also spent the weekend making up 48 card kits for my Copic classes at Scrapbook Emporium!Glad that is out of the way! I did get some time to do some fun stamping too! I need 2 B-day cards and so I thought I would play along with the challenge over at Just Magnolia...Bright and Zingy! That works for a B-day card! I used the sketch over at Sketch Saturday but I have to say that this card kinda took on a life of it's own, so I've deviated quite a bit from the original sketch!
Hope it still counts!

I used up scraps that I had of this zingy Baby Safari paper by Little Yellow Bicycle Co. and made a 6x6 cardbase from yellow Bazzill Bling cardstock and used green and orange Bazzill Bling for matting. Again...I used lots of bright Prima flowers and American Crafts ribbon, some yellow velvet trim that I bought at Micheals. I stamped Tilda with Cat on ATS Copic Quality paper and coloured her with my Copics, cut her out and pop-dotted her on the mat. The tag is a QK die and the sentiment is Melissa Frances rub-on.

Here is the inside...I might be the only one who finds this funny since I'm an interpreter! Just so ya know, I don't usually interpret for kitty cats,he,he,he!
Well, thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card! Hope you have stampin' great week!
