About Me: GOT KITTIES? Then this is the store for you! KONTINENTAL KITTIES is a conglomerate of CAT CARDS which I've created based on my own two Domestic Shorthairs. They are BUD & TONY two of the main stars of this trunk show. They're groovy cats with Cattitude & Spunk, & love to entertain anyone who'll share their offbeat style of adventures. Mixed in you will find more traditional cat paintings as well, but BUD & TONY are still the Big Cats On Campus. FOLLOW THEM ON TWITTER AND FACEBOOK!
My Interests: Being a proud guardian of kittehs, World travel, hanging with family and friends, gardening, singing in the shower, power walking, cooking, playing the ukulele, doing all things creative, and coming up with playful or clever verse, and oh yes... Animal Planet's Jackson Galaxy, Dr. Oz, Castle & ALL THINGS KITTEH.
Hello and Welcome to my store! Please note YOU CAN CUSTOMIZE THE INSIDE OF ALL MY CARDS OR KEEP THE VERSE AS IS. Remember, a Card in the mail from a caring relative or friend is always GOOD KARMA!
BUD & TONY ARE MY TWO COMICAL AND CURIOUS KITTIES SHARING THEIR WILD ADVENTURES. They leave a tiny 'PAW PRINT' in each of their adventures. So look for their little 'MARK' in each illustration!
Hi Betty, I love your Bud and Tony cards! I really like the detailed illustrations and the fun activities you have them doing on each card. Very nice! ~ Cathie

I love your style, Betty! It's always a pleasure to see when you put a new card up! Recently, I created a Squidoo lens that talks about artists who draw cats on GCU, and I've included you on my list. Hope you don't mind! You can see the lens here: http://www.squidoo.com/the-best-cat-greeting-cards-on-greeting-card-universe :-) Cheers! Heather

Betty, Congratulations on your Design of the Day!
The places the adorable Bud and Tony take us, now to middle school!
In honor of our feline friends, wanted to share that today I committed to adopting a kitten and she can come to our home one week today.
Keep up your beautiful work Betty.
Best wishes always,

From one cat artist to another - I love your cards and the very personal touch that Bud & Tony bring to them. Since losing Samson, my number one model a few years ago, it has been a comfort that his character in my cards lives on and is still enjoyed by so many. I wish you every luck.

Betty, your cat greeting cards are so adorable. You should also put your felines on other products like coffee mugs and calendars for all the cat lovers out there who just can't get enough:) I also love the Hawaiian theme cards since I live on Kauai.
Best of luck on your greeting card line.
