Something New for Crafty Calendar

Hello lovely peeps

It's the first Saturday of the month, which means it is time for a new challenge at Crafty Calendar.
The theme this month is 'Something New', and there are two sponsors

Lawn Fawn

Bugaboo Stamps

My 'Something New' is one of the new release stamps from Bugaboo called Bug Cat 6.

I love this stamp, it reminds me of our cat Millie. She was our 'Something New' in January 2010 when we adopted her from the local RSPCA branch. After she's eaten (or sometimes for no apparent reason) she runs around the house like a complete loon, with eyes like saucers.

The stamp has 6 panels, but I've split them up and made a little concertina book. I printed the image onto 3 different papers (2 Tail Wags patterned papers from Nitwit and plain white) then paper pieced each panel.

The sentiment is from the Wilfred and Wally set by Hobby Art. I inked up the words individually and stamped straight onto the printed panels.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
 Show us Your Pussies-Cat Only Challenge #14 Furry-thing Goes
Allsorts #397 Cats or Dogs
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper  Anything goes with Patterned Paper
