Cheers to You---Pig with Cupcakes Card...

In a few hours, it's the fourth of July, 2012.  Want to wish everyone "Happy Independence Day!"  Well, today, I just want to share this A7 card I made for a friend who celebrated her Birthday recently.  I used a freebie image from Bugaboo stamps that I got a while back and colored it with my ProMarker/Prismacolor markers.  I added 3 different colored glitters (Stickles---namely Turquoise, Orange Peel and Cotton Candy) to the cupcakes.  Got some orange satin ribbon for extra dimension.  The DP's are from my scrap/stash and the glittered DP is from Paper Studio which I also die-cut with my Labels One Nesties.  The CS are 2 shades of brown.  The sentiment is from Studio G stamps and a part of the inside message is from the book "Ultimate Guide to a Perfect Card."  I'm amazed how it turned into a bright and happy card. This Card is entered into the following Challenges:

1.    Sassy Cheryl's featuring "Anything Goes"
2.    Anything Goes Challenge featuring "Birthday with Polka-Dot theme" 
3.    Papertake Weekly featuring "Anything Goes" 
4.    Stampnplus featuring "Anything Goes" 
5.    Shopping our Stash featuring "Triple Threat" (I used Stickles glitter 3 times/different colors)
6.    Chocolate, Coffee & Cards featuring "Anything Goes" 
7.    Stampin' Sisters in Christ featuring "Something New"  (Main image is used for the first time)

CHEERS TO YOU---PIG WITH CUPCAKES CARD WITH ENVELOPE:
  
I got a little sad today because we found one of the stray cats that visits our home in front of our door and before and we can do anything, died  in front of us.  And when we were leaving, we found another kitty close to our house that is laying on the grass, so weak.  We don't know what happened to them as the other day, they were all so healthy and strong.  Since we live in an apartment, the other day, somebody called the office saying that we were feeding the stray cats and told us that because of a complaint, we needed to stop.  But what can we do?  Literally, let these helpless creatures die from starvation and dehydration?  I was made to conclude the world is full of merciless people and while they don't do anything to protect these poor living creatures, they even oppose to those that try and help.  I prayed for every single cats that are in the property to be safe from these kinds of people---those who wants to harm and destroy them.  I know the Lord Jesus has heard my prayer.  I can only hope that when they (selfish people) come to a point where they would need someone to help them, they don't have anything to eat, need a little compassion, that someone will be there for them to do what they have not done...I'm sorry, I just feel very strongly about these matter.   If only I have a place to shelter all of these poor animals, I could have done so (I already own a dog and a cat).  The protection of the Lord be upon them and those that have God's heart to care for them.  Blessings to y'all!
