It wasn't hard at all to make the kitty. I just stamped the owl, and then the tail of the whale, in Brocade Blue, and then used my handy-dandy Paper Snips to trim off the last swirl of the whale's tail to use as the cat's tail. I then colored in the nose with a Pretty in Pink marker, and made whiskers and colored in the eyes with a Basic Black marker.
You can actually draw little triangle shapes down the side of the inked up owl, with a darker colored marker, and then stamp, to get a stripey cat--it turns out way cute! Use different colored markers to make a tortoise-shell or calico cat. For those of you out there who just don't like to, or can't, cut the little strip of whale's tail out, you can still make a kitty by using the brush end of a coordinating marker and just drawing it on.
The tag on the card was also made from Sneak Peek product--it uses the Modern Label Punch. Believe me, you're going to see this punch everywhere, and you will HAVE to have it on July 1st. In fact, you might want to order it as soon as you can (Noon MST on July 1st) so you don't risk waiting for it on backorder, because I'm sure it is going to be a big hit with everyone! I took a VersaMarker and drew around the inside of the tag, to make it look a little more 3-D, and I even added a couple of score lines around where I put the brads. It gives the label a lot more depth...or at least it seems that way to me.
