Puurrfect Day!

Hi, and welcome!

How are you on this bright and breezy Saturday, then?
I'm pleased to say it's a little cooler today, here in the North West of England.....thank goodness!
Still good for hangin' out the wash, because there's a lovely breeze......and I do like to have me smalls a little wind-blown...haaa!

It's not at all like me to be posting at lunch-time.......I usually have to wait until the evening to get on me little netbook, and have a chin-wag with you, but I've got a back-log of crafty stuff to get going on, so I need to plan time a lot better than I usually do......just sayin'.......

I'm not really one for making animal cards of any kind, but this kitty image was a freebie, and just tickled me, so I thought I'd give it a whirl........

I used a white card blank and layered up with Nitwits Nitwits!.......and chose pinks. browns and greens.....very restful!

I thought I'd try a bit of doodling around the edge of the image......good job doodling doesn't involve straight lines, haa.......and coloured up this little guy with Promarkers.......the brown lacy border is cut with a Martha Stewart border punch.........

The flowers are from docrafts and I added a piece of pink Card Candi in the centre with die-cut foliage in brown.......I saw these at The Range and they somehow fell into my basket...heehee....

Don't laugh at my attempt at doodlin' a sentiment........did 3 versions, and this was as good as it got....haahaa!
Do you like the little kitty?  If you'd like to grab a whole sheet of kitty-doings FOR FREE!, then here's the link
Just click on the DOWNLOADS tab at the top of the'll find two versions of the freebie in black and white and a coloured version.........very cute!

Hope you have a great day!

  15. Spooky - I just bought the mentioned magazine on Saturday (yes we are a little behind here)... my philosophy is to get lots of inspiration to cards and photos these days - which makes me a bit sad that I am still unable to craft.
