About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.

Show us your Pussies challenge 17 - furrything goes with optional twist Easter

Show us your Pussies (cats only) challenge 17 - furrything goes with optional Easter.

My youngest daughter Angela's two youngest daughters Emily 20 and Brianna 8 are drawing together today.   They are drawing pictures to send to me for my birthday in a few days time.  They rang me as Brianna wanted to know what was my favourite animal.  The first thing I thought of was cat.
Emily has done this lovely drawing of a purple and pink cat (my favourite colours) and sent it by facebook.
It is such a love fun drawing I had to make it into a card for the challenge.

I have layered Emily's drawing onto paper from We are 3 Pretty Kitty paper collection and added sentiment from We are 3 Sunshine Sentiments collection.
Added flowers and butterflies from Digital Scrapbooking Studio.

I would also like to add this card to the following:

613 Avenue Create 196 - anything goes with optional twist anything spring

Crafting with an attitude 26 - anything goes
