A Pillow for Alicia

My daughter Alicia's birthday was March 2nd, so I was a little late on getting her gift to her. She had mentioned that she needed pillows, so her being the cat person she is, (she like has 100 cats, well, maybe not 100 but probably 6 or 7 or ?), I thought I would make her a pillow with cats, to add to her collection of live cats.
I started making one with a stencil and it didn't turn out to my liking so I tossed it. I didn't take a picture of it either...oh well.
I got out my handy dandy cricut machine (which I love!!), used some cotton fabric that I cut to 12" x 12", ironed on some interfacing to the back of it, opened up a picture of these cats on my computer and put a marker in the cricut and this is what it drew (kind of funky, whimsical cats, don't ya think?) :

I added some black cotton fabric for a border, added another piece of black fabric for the back and put a pillow inside and this is what it looks like:
Happy Late Birthday Alicia!!!
