Masculine Get Well Lazy Laptop Cat card

Masculine Get Well card featuring free Sliekje Lazy Laptop Cat digi, by Paperesse.

I needed a get well card for a friend of my husband's who was ill a while back. Do you know it's down right difficult to find a suitable get well digi for a man? I finally settled on this Lazy Laptop Cat from Sliekje's free digital stamps. Sliekje has some great animal digis (check out the Panda on this Valentine's Day card).

Normally, you wouldn't associate a 'kitty' with a guy, but this is a gender neutral kitty. That laptop on his tummy makes this good for anyone and as the recipient was laid up for a while, I thought it eminently appropriate.

To keep the masculine vibe going, I used a gray and blue color scheme. Ribbon and enamel dots dress it up just a bit, not too much. The sentiment ('Get well soon' in French), was created with Dancing Script font.
