1 Pesty Cat = 1 Early Mojo

He doesn't really meow.  He makes this very annoying "aaat" sound, over and over and over.  And it's especially annoying at 4:30 am!  He jumps up on the bed, spreads out right next to me with his head rubbing the corner of the pillow and goes, "aaat, aaat, aaat".  If I roll over, he climbs to the other side, stepping on me  of course, and repeats the process, over and over, and over.  Sometimes he lets me fall asleep for 5 or 10 minutes.  But eventually he returns to his annoying "aaat, aaat, aaat".  If I pet him several minutes, he quiets down.  When I stop, he's back to "aaat, aaat, aaat".  I should have just responded to the initial, "aaat, aaat, aaat" by getting out of bed and letting him outside.  But by the time I did, I was thoroughly awake.  There might have been a slim chance or returning to sleep, had I not sneaked a peek at today's Mojo Sketch.  Then the wheels start turning and next thing I know.... I'm cutting paper.

Lately, when I don't need a card for something specific, I try to make an "Any Hero" card for Operation Write Home using the Mojo Monday Sketch.


Great Impressions is having a great blog hop this month to support OWH and a sketch challenge of their own.  Since I was up early, I had time to make 2 "Any Hero" cards this morning and do their blog hop.  

This is the OPW sketch I followed.
 If you ever need a sketch, OPW has hundreds on their blog and all with measurements.

Note to self:  Shut bedroom door tonight or duck tape cat's mouth shut!
