Very cute! I love the way you say 'slice a piece of carrot into a cat like shape' - I know I just couldn't do that without the involvement of a few plasters:)

SO SWEET, Simone!! You are very talented!

That's really clever, Simone!

You must have to slice the carrot very finely...

What a sweet and happy cat! Never thought to use a carrot to stamp with. At first I thought the cat was made with a finely sliced piece of dried carrot.

Love it! My first cat was orange and white. She did not possess the sweet nature of your carrot cat, however. Good job.

Hi Simone, how cool your new blog layout!
What has happened to your cooking blog? Is that you talking about car insurance or a nasty spammer?!

Ann said...

Now what on earth made you think of turning a carrot into a cat! :o) Just too clever - and so cute!
