2 kitties + 2 cards+ a candy!!

I thought I would share these with you...

I sent these two crochet kitties and cards to a sweet friend's daughters while they were recovering from the H1N1 flu a little while ago...

I made the crochet kitties about a year ago in rainbow colors and thought that they might help cheering the two little girls up... I picked the ones that matched their favorite colors and made two cards to go with them.

Big thanks to Donna for those cute Anya images!! They are perfect for girly cards! I put some Stickles on the wings of this Flutter Anya.

I think Ballerina Anya is one of my favorite Anyas! She is so cute and confident dancing!! I traced her tiara and tutus with Stickles as well.

And no, I didn't come up with the pattern for the crochet kitty cats... The pattern is from this cute Japanese amigurumi book. I was really obsessed with making them for a while and made about 18 of them in various sizes and colors!! Unfortunately, they have been "hibernating" in our closet ever since we adopted our two "real" cat children... So I am glad that they made two little girls happy and are getting more attention from their new family!! =)


Now on to the candy!! The super talented Jenn is giving away this candy that's full of Hero Arts and Purple Onion Designs goodies!!!!

But the items that I really want are the "Jenn's Original" card and ATC!!!!!!!!! Please check out her blog to find out how you can win them!
