Look for the small miracles

We get so busy with all the "things" going on in life that we forget to look at the little things that are also important.  At our house we have so many doctor appointments and with teen-agers coming and going it is hard to know who is going to be in or out.  Our cats have an automatic food dispenser, but the other day I noticed that it was low, and that I had not filled it up at night like I usually do.  They still had some food, but I felt bad that I had almost forgotten to fill it.  Since we have four cats, it would have been a big deal and I would have heard from them if that was the case - it is just that there would have been a payback I'm sure.
My first card has a wonderful sentiment from TLC, Create about small miracles.  My second card is for cupcake day which is August 20th and has a great sentiment from TLC, Create.  I added glitter to the frosting.  My third card is using this week's Splitcoast Sketch and a sentiment from TLC, Create.

Lisa Lynn, you never cease to amaze me with the number of wonderful cards you can create! :^) The first two are just darling and the third is very pretty! All are nice takes on the sketches! :^)

Funny about the cats--I remember, when we were raising Persians years ago--that mealtime was noisy!!! And we had a Siamese once that would climb up your back when she wanted her food! Ouch!

ACK! Cat revenge is never, ever pretty. We have 3, so I'm familiar with their tactics, lol :)
I love your cards - the sentiment on the last one made me laugh right out loud. So true. The frosting card with its buttons & polka dot flowers is fun & funky! And the gnome has totally stolen my heart. Look at that beard!
