I Love/Hate Cats!!

I love little furry creatures. I probably will never have another cat, but I really have fun with those that belong to my friends and family.

The challenge today at SCS is to make a card other than A2, inspired by your favorite musical. My favorite is My Fair Lady. I also love Bye, Bye Birdie, which I saw with Dick Van Dyke on Broadway. I couldn't come up with anything I really liked for the first, and have done a number of birds lately, so those were out.
I have this crazy friend, Cheryl, who has three cats at the moment (she's had more, believe me!), and she's having a birthday shortly. This card is for her.

Now to the Hate part of the story. When Cats was first playing in Boston, we bought outrageously expensive tickets with two other couples. We went to a pricey restaurant for dinner, then to the theater. At the intermission, we talked it over, and all went home. We hated it. The costuming was fabulous, but nonetheless, we hated it. Now I'm sure some of you loved it, but it just wasn't our thing. That's my story about Cats, and I'm stickin' to it!!

And it's snowing! Is eight o'clock in the morning too early to start drinking?????!

I'm a dog person myself! I think it is a riot that you didn't go back for the second part of the show, I'm still giggling. Good for you!! I love a person that knows their own mind.
We have a 15 minute rule for movies, if it still stinks after that long we turn it off. For books it's 50 pages. I'll have to remember the intermission cutoff :)
We are going to NYC next week and have tickets to Billy Elliott on Broadway. Hope it's not a stinker, it was very expensive.
Have a great weekend, Anne!!

Oh, and eight in the morning is not too early to start drinking. Especially a little Bailey's in your coffee or something. I think that is perfectly acceptable :)

I had to chuckle reading your story about the musical today Anne LOL! I've never seen the musical Cats but I do love the furry kind :) Your cat loving friend is sure to adore this super cute card you've made for her!
p.s. Don't feel too bad - it is snowing here also - second day in a row!

Well, with your sweet looking little cat it would definitely be bye, bye to any birdie who happened to get near her.
