Less is More - week 80 - Fur or Feathers

Mmmm. One layer week at Less is More this week. Not my style at all, though 'Fur' definitely is! We always had cats until a couple of years ago when my last beautiful tortoiseshell cat had to be put to sleep and I couldn't face the heartache again. I absolutely love ginger cats and having had two I know that they are quite different characters from other cats. Hence my choice of orange (actually TH Wild Honey!) for this stamp.
A c6 ivory hammered card base with 'Sleepy cat' by Funstamps (no idea where it came from - I've had it for years) stamped with TH Wild Honey distress ink. Sentiment is computer printed. It's a quote from a favourite poem of mine by Eleanor Farjeon. Faux stitching border stamped in TH Wild Honey and Pumice Stone is part of a set from what was Dimension Fourth (think they've changed their name now).
Off for a day out now though not sure where OH has planned for us.
Thanks to everyone for their kind comments last week.

Hi Di I totally feel your pain about pets as we have just had to have our beloved German Shepherd put to sleep and although I would have another one tomorrow (hypothetically speaking) I really don't want to go through this heart break again go through we also two wonderful cats one of which is a ginger and white one and yes I totally understand what you mean about there personality being different
love your card and I think if I could come back as anything it would be a loved cat getting to sleep all day bliss lol enjoy your weekend

Great CAS card. I love the fact cats sleep anywere. I find my cats strangest places. I always wonder why they choose places that do not look the least comfortable.
I understand what you say about the heartache, there was a time that I didn't want a cat because of that either. But when there came a kitten to live with us 2 years later, I knew I missed that terribly.
