Advice from the cat

I got this wonderful image at "From the Heart" and it is the stamp for this months progressive challenge also.  I thought it was perfect for the sentiment that was available at TLC.  For this card I used the sketch for this week and I made my own yarn balls using a piece of cardstock and wrapping it with twine.  I distressed the outside edge of the paper with my scissors.  We have 3 Siamese cats and they were rather active today.  I picked up some flowers at the Farmers Market and our male cat Casio loves to chew on flowers so I usually have to hide them.
