CAS(E) this Sketch #196

Happy Thursday and welcome to CTS #196! Woo hoo, it's a special week for us as we are CAS(E)ing for a Cause with Karen (  
While using the sketch as a guide, the DT has been challenged to create pet-themed general and thank you cards, which will be donated to the animal shelter and used to write messages to their many donors and volunteers. 
Frantic Stamper's little kitten die (and a pile of entertaining yarn spools!) was just what I had in mind for this thank you card. Lots of white space and color (and a bit of cute)!
We hope that you'll be inspired to play along with us at CAS(E) this Sketch #196.
P.S.-Please welcome our fabulous GD, Lisa!!

Now, it is not required that you participate in our CAS(E) for the Cause to play along with our challenge.  You are more than welcome to just use the sketch and enter your card as normal.  All cards will be considered for the win.  However, if you feel so inclined, we'd love to have you join in the fun.  Here's a few details about the CAS(E) and you can visit Karen to read more.

They are looking for mostly general and thank you pet themed cards (no wild animals please).   Some birthday, sympathy and anniversary cards are welcome too.  Please leave the inside of the cards blank for the humane society to write personal messages.  Please include envelopes.  No plastic sleeves.
