A card and the problem with making cards...

First I will talk about the latest card I have. It is for the challenge at Crafter's Digital Art Center (CDAC).  We are now in challenge 11. The theme is 'Love will find a way'.  There were so many adorable images to choose from. I had a really hard time deciding.  I decided to combine two images from Sew Many Cards and Lauretta's Digital Stamps.  I thought it looked pretty cute when you put it all together. And it was fun to color (well, mostly, but more about that below).  It's hard to tell from the pic, but the chocolate ice cream has teeny tiny heart confetti in gold and silver in place of the sprinkles (it was a cover up because I goofed up the sprinkles! Oops!).  Here's the card:
Now on to the problem I have making cards. I was wondering if any of you also experience this dilemma??  I seem to have some issues with coloring every now and again.  It's like a warm fuzzy thing is holding down my hand and I can't color.  Here, I will show you the problem:

Oddly enough - this little fuzzy part is attached to a larger fuzzy part that likes to sleep RIGHT where I am trying to work.  The closer the better.  But just wait until you hear the noise it makes... purrr, purrrrr, purrrrrr.  How can a person get anything done?  And when its not sleeping.. It likes to paw through my box of paper scraps just to see what I have.  Can anyone help me with this?  Here's a pic of the other end.


And just so you can see why I can't just tell her no.. well, check out these pics:
So, has anyone else had this problem??  That's life with Gidget.  Keeps things interesting!! Have a good one!

I completely understand this situation.. my cat(s) do the same thing.. they just want to help.. Mine dig through practically everything on the desk, then plops down right in the middle of my work.. you can't tell them no, especially to such a cute cat like yours.. (does your cat snore like mine does..prring is okay but snoring..) i have learned to live with it.. because remember we are thier staff...hugs..

Ha, I love the pictures of your fuzzy problem. I need to take some of mine. Except every time I bust out the camera he sticks his face right into, such a ham. His favorite is the ribbon bin, he knows when it gets opened and he comes running. He also lays on my laptop when I am trying to work. Good thing they are so cute or they wouldnt get away with all that.

So funny! My furbaby died last year, but I remember him doing the same thing. He would lay right in the middle of every project and would put his paws and tail wherever I would work! As annoying as it sometimes was, It is one of the things I miss the most! Love your baby he is a sweetie!
