Kitty with a Mustache

It is not obvious but this card is a back to school card. Seriously.

Explanation:  my granddaughter just got a kitty (her first) last week.  Now she will be heading off to school, leaving kitty behind.  So my card to her is to let her know that she will be on my mind the first day of school.  But as she reads the sentiment, she may think that the kitty is on her mind or that she is on the kitty's mind.  See, I covered all the bases with one sentiment!  which is by Verve.
The kitty image is by Doodle Pantry.  The kitty is black with a white mustache and white paws but has to be on the gray side to show up on the card. Here is the Doodle Pantry set:
I used the Mojo Monday sketch:
And for those of you who follow me on a regular basis, you will know that from time to time, I try to get shabby.  So this is another attempt.  The background paper is a piece of October Afternoon Field Trip paper which has school related drawings and words.  The other designer papers are just pieces in my stash, distressing most of them. Base is Kraft.  I used a flower from Close to My Heart and a heart charm that has been in my stash for years.
