Jezebel's Card to Daddy

Jezebel was really bent out of shape this morning because Mommy spent too much time on challenges this week and not enough time (read NO time) making her a card to give Daddy. (Goliath didn't much care because he had a gift but Jezzie thinks she a gift enough but loves to remind Daddy how precious she is. LOL) I printed out this Purrfect Princess stamp from Pixie Dust Studio and colored her with my Copics. The paper is sort of a joke because Jezebel NEVER comes when she's called. The placement of the kitty and the sentiment came about by accident. I wanted the whole "Here Kitty Kitty" to show, but my room is such a mess that I couldn't find my repositionable tape to tape the mat to run through the printer so I grabbed some used stuff that was stuck to my table. It came unstuck and the "From Your Princess" was printed cockeyed at the bottom of the page. CRAP! I was in a hurry and didn't have any more paper so I decided it sort of looked like where a kid would write and I added the "To Daddy" to the top corner. Then stuck a bow on to fill up the empty space on the side. Not too bad.
Both Goliath and Jezebel are Pixie Bob cats, a breed that supposedly has some bobcat ancestry in their background from barn cats breeding naturally with them in the wild. Goliath is a big old sweetie, but Jezzie still has that wild flight instinct and although she comes around to wake us up every morning and purrs around our ankles, when we reach down to pet her she scoots away. She's definitely a Daddy's girl and cries at the door whenever Daddy leaves (even to go out to get the paper). Only occasionally however, does she come up and sit on Daddy's lap. (Forget Mommy, unless she has tuna fish. ) Lately she's been particularly skittish which upsets Daddy to no end, hence the inside sentiment. She found it very amusing.


  1. Fabulous card.. and the sentiment inside is totally hilarious! Hope he enjoys his 'lap dance'!!

  2. Oh Donna, that is definitely not TOO BAD... it's just perfect.

  3. Very cute Donna, I just love your little stories about the cats, so sweet.

  4. What a sweet card! The sentiment inside is so funny! My cat does come when she's called - IF I'm shaking the bag of treats. I enjoyed reading your story!! That's a cat!

  5. What a darling precious card from Jezzie to her Daddy....
    I always love your little stories too.

  6. Donna, you are too funny my friend! Love your card and especially your story behind it. It is just perfect for "Daddy" for his day. The inside is a "hoot", LOL.

    Hugz, xx


  7. Too cute, Donna! And, a "purrfect" example of how a things happen for a how it turned out. You'd never know you didn't plan for it to be designed just as it is! Can't wait for CHA!

  8.'s so cute the cats had cards for daddy! LOL!!! LOVE the sentiment! I wish I could meet Jezebel. She sounds like a real trip!

  9. Love the card, Donna! But, love the story more! Cats are funny little people, aren't they?!

    Have a great week!

  10. Well, Jezebel and Goliath can act however they want!!! We love them too much to do anything about anything they do. My dh says that my lil Buster tries to shove him out of the way for the "man of the house" position and I respond by saying he doesn't have to try...! LOL! Thank God, my hubby can take it!!!

    I am really glad the storm hasn't started yet so that I had this opportunity to get in and see this adorable card without missing it!!!
    Donna, you just never cease to amaze me! Did I tell you I wanted to grow up to be just like you?

    I really do hope you get to come to the CHA!

    Hugs, my friend!

  11. Awwww this is so cute Donna and I love the story that goes along with it! I couldn't help but laugh, we have 2 dogs and our little Maltese is a bit of a snob, she thinks it's always all about her! Isn't it funny how animals are really humans in fur coats!

  12. LOl this is too cute! My doggie forgot to give his daddy a father's day card! ;p

  13. the little heart tiny.

  14. Fab card!! I love the sentiment inside :-)


Thanks for making my day!
