Happy Thursday!  Hope you’ve been enjoying the week.  The week has flown by for me.  I was called to be on “grandma” duty for my grandson who was not feeling well but as a four year old does, he recovered quickly!  It was nice to spend a couple of days with him even though he wasn’t his normal, precocious self.
The card being shared with you today was recently given to a friend for her birthday.  Since she’s a cat lover, it seemed most appropriate.  The stamp is from the Giggle Greetings stamp set  (#131062 w, #131065 c) in the current Stampin’ Up! catalog.  It’s a stamp set that is aptly named and is sure to bring smiles to card recipients!
