Love Card Using Imagine That Mailbox Kitties and CTMH Hopscotch Paper Pack

Hello friends.  I hope everyone is keeping warm.  I am so sorry that most of the US is so cold with snow and ice.  I couldn't believe it was 91 here in LA area last week; with 80 degrees difference between the East and West coast.  

My mother had her home evaluation this week; so they can check out her home before she is allowed to be released from the nursing home.  MO has ice and several inches of snow on the ground, with more to come.  She was a little depressed the last couple days; because she is afraid it will cause a delay in her release.  She is so ready to go home mentally; but not quite there physically.  The evaluation went fine; but she was exhausted after just walking from car to house.  I don't know how she is going to live there alone.  

I saw this Imagine That Mailbox Kitties Pre-Colored version and just had to use it for a card.  Aren't they adorable?  Kris did a fabulous job in creating these images with the sentiments.  Be sure to check out Imagine That Progressive Challenge; so you can get the free digi set each month.  I purchased this one first for a reduced price; so next month will be free. I created this card for my sister and her husband.  My sister, Alice and her husband Kenny do as much as they can for mom; but Alice's health isn't that great at times.

I am entering this card in Path of Positivity Laughter Challenge. I find myself laughing each time I watch kittens play.  They are so creative and joyful to watch.  Puppies are also entertaining; but kittens are the most fun for me to watch.  I hope you enjoy this card.
