Did Cats Invent Snark?

I think it's entirely possible that cats were snarky long before people ever were. Imagine them, swanning around Egypt, being treated like the royalty they so obviously are. Of course, there is also that bit about being mummified...
Anyway, it seems more than time for the Sisterhood to offer K is for KITTIES as a challenge! 


I have a cat stamp or two (dozen). I pulled out my newest set, though, as it lends itself to snark: 


I used last week's Paper Players sketch as the basis for my design, but of course the challenge ended before I could post. At least that meant I could modify it to my heart's content. After adding the washi tape to the white panel, it still needed a little something, so I ran it though an embossing folder. The grey patterned paper seemed to have a bit of a cat-scratched look to it. And the vellum oval just seemed to set off my grouchy cat perfectly. 
Simon Says Stamp has an Anything Goes challenge, so I'm sending the grump over there. ;) 
Snarky or sweet, we'd love to see your kitty card! My snarky sisters have great inspiration for you, as do our latest guest designers, Leslie and Kathi. Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Halloween! 

Supplies: white cardstock, Echo Park Be Mine patterned paper, vellum, Tailored Expressions If Cats Could Talk stamps & die, Memento Luxe grey flannel & rhubarb stalk inks, Zing clear embossing powder, Spectrum Noir markers, Spellbinders oval & reverse wonky rectangle & Paper Smooches stitched dies, Queen & Co trendy tape, Cuttlebug Seeing Spots embossing folder. pop-dot tape

I like your grouchy cat! He's absolutely catastic! I don't think that I have 2 dozen kittie stamps yet, but the collection is growing!

Love the shape of your card Lindsey, and the snarky sentiment! ;)

Love it! Somehow the addition of flowers behind your cat makes him appear even more snarky!
