Creating while I can

It's President's day so I am graced with the day off!  Which means I can create while I have the extra time even if my laundry is stacked up.  Shhh!  Laundry is overrated!  ;-)  I have two facts to share with you today about past president's of the United States.  


Warren Harding  was a gambler and lost all the White House china in a game.


Andrew Jackson had a parrot that he taught profanity to.  


Why am I sharing these less than admirable facts with you?  Because they intrigued me and left an imprint in my mind. Now moving on.  


My card today is for Paper Playtime.  Our challenge is "Pets" and while I do not have any pets, I did have this really cute cat die cut to create today's card.
I used scraps of paper and wanted to focus on my white space and using pink which are in the kitty's stripes.  A simple card.    :-)
