Hello Again!  I'm back with a bright shaker card today.  What's better than Rainbows and Unicats? Rainbows, Unicats and glitter!  This one was kind of inspired by an old photo and a sweet old lady.  Our great aunt turned 90 New Years Eve and her party was yesterday.  So of course I needed a card. Enter the photo of me and my brother many many moons ago discovering she snuck her cat into her brother's house in her suitcase!

  I took inspiration from my used to be platinum blonde hair- God knew I was meant for fun, time has turned it more sandy brown now😞- and the cat that was definitely magical or maybe it was just the thought of mischief. 
 But I'm sure you aren't here for my memories, so here is the YouTube tutorial and details.

I did have a nice chat with the sweet lady yesterday and how it was just so scandalous to have a cat in the suitcase, in the house no less. She laughed and kinda said I guess it was.  As a 5 year old farm girl, cats were meant to stay outside not in the house and to sneak one in probably would have landed me in really hot water. And here she was doing just that and not a care in the world about it. 

Keep getting inky,
