One Groooooovy Gal


I'm loving the new A La Modes line of cling rubber stamps at My Favorite Things. (And did I spy a *new* Christmas one in my jaunt through blogland this morning? Yay!!) This one is Groovy Girl. How about that oversize peace sign she's carrying and the flower garland she's wearing? Cute! I did my coloring with Copics and Prismacolor pencils. All of the designer papers are from Crate Paper's new Restoration line.

Thank you for the sweet comments yesterday about the missing mojo. I love all the support in this papercrafting community! Some of you asked to see pictures of Rocki, our new kitten. I thought you might chuckle over her making a toy out of the ribbon/cord accent on yesterday's card.



Have at it, sweet girl. I didn't like that card anyway! :P



Here's another one that shows more of her. She isn't what I would necessarily call a "pretty" cat, but she won us over with her sweet personality and her willingness to tolerate all of our crazy chaos :) Our family is evenly divided over changing her name to Roxi to make her name more feminine. (Rocki, even with an "i" on the end, still seems like a boy cat's name) What do you think?

So glad you paid a visit today. Hope your day is blessed!

So pretty Amy! I love your colouring of course and the cards fanned out like that are perfect! Your kittie is super cute and I love the name Roxi!

Amy, I adore cats and think Roxi suits this sweet lil' kitty. Enjoy your time with her, they grow up too fast. I have been following you for a while and I love all your cards!xx

What a sweet little kitten! I love cats, but my hubby is allergic. Love your card too...it's adorable. The card accents are nice and love the bow!

Love your groooovy girl! Super cute! I remember when your son did the same thing to a card, which made me chuckle since mine did the same thing right around that time too. haha! Love that you have a picture of your kitty with your card :)

Your groovy girl is adorable! Totally hear ya on the missing mojo, mine just comes and goes and even though it's sooo sweet to have encouragement, sometimes I've just gotta ride it out. I will tell you though, 100% you CANNOT tell, my friend-your cards have been amazing as always, to me :) Um, your kitty is the cutest freakin' thing I've seen all week! Oh, how precious she is, and that pic is hilarious! Enjoy her! She looks so soft!

Your new little girl is just a beautiful kitty! I adore cats, and she is a beauty! Your card is adorable too. Either name seems to suit her!

Great card, right out of the 70's - Just love your style on everything. Beautiful.

Michelle said...

Well I think she is BEAUTIFUL (the card AND the cat) --I love Roxi --it suits her!

Oliwiaen said...

Fantastic card! Love that vintage feel :-)
And I've never seen a cat like that, with every "cat" colour on it! But Rocki seems to heavy a name for a kitten, Roxi sounds better :-)

She's just adorable Amy (although I'd be having a heart attack that she's getting into your latest card!!!). I'm sure she'll bring so much love to your family!! :)

KathyJ (Wattle) said...

Ooops - forgot to say how fab and funky your card is!!! :)

Tanya said...

Love your card, beautiful as always! Your kitty is a real cutie, I think her little face is so sweet! Roxi is a really cute name.

Leslie Miller said...

A groovy gal and groovy colors and design! And, BTW, I like yesterday's card a LOT, and I think it's nice that you let your pretty little kitty girl enjoy it, too. She looks like a sweetie!

Lynne Phelps said...

The card is super but the kitten is ADORABLE!!! Look at that sweet little face with the black blaze going down the middle! What a cute helper you have. I am sure she was just "fluffing" that bow as Becca puts it!

ladybugg61 said...

As a cat lover, I think ALL cats are adorable, even the ornery older male versions! LOL Roxi, Roxette, Rocki ... whatever you end up naming her, I hope you enjoy her "company" in your craft room - and home - for many happy years to come!

Marisa said...

Nothing like a trip (no pun intended) back to the 60's. Darling card. Love the kitty pictures :) She looks very alert, and I lvoe the picture of her playing with the tag on your card LOL! Yup, all kitten. I love Roxi for a name.

dpkennedy said...

I think Roxi is gorgeous! That big splash of black across her face is so adorable! I love kitties!

Your card is gorgeous! Love the playing cards! How fun!

Now I think Roxi is one adorably cute cat! She has such a sweet face. I have a calico, too, and others may not think she is particularly gorgeous but I think she is one of the loveliest cats ever. Roxi is a perfect name, too.

Lynne Phelps said...

With that sweet splotched face, I would have to name her Inkspot!! Wonderful card too! ;-)

Jessie/knightrone said...

Super cute card and kitty!! Looks like a Roxi to me!!

Lydia said...

She is too a pretty kitteh! I love those crazy looking cats - I have one too. I also love the name Rocki! I'd keep it!

Beautiful card too :)

Amy, your card is exquisite (as usual), I love coming to your blog for eye "candy". Your kitty is totally adorable, I absolutely love the markings on her face. We have a female kitty that is 14 named "Scooter" . . . non-gender name I think . . . LOL! We're losing her, she has cancer. She's been a joy to all of us. She was a gift to Stephen at the end of 1st grade for making straight A's the entire year. Now he's a junior in college . . . where did the time go? I wish you and your family many, many years of joy with your Rocki. {{{hugs}}}

oh amy - rocki is a-dorable!!! i was hoping you'd post a pic. beginning of august i guess we adopted 2 kittens from the shelter - to be a companion to our 14 yr old cat Frankie (we had recently lost our other cat Spencer - so Frankie needed some friends!) we've always adopted older cats so kittens have been sooo fun - crazy and adorable - just like little Rocki! and i like the name just fine - Roxi is a cute name too (our kitties are Willie - the girl and Westley - boy) congrats on your new family member!
