I'm back in my office which is my craft room after nearly a week of being poorly with a bad cold. Aren't they so stupid? They knock you for six for something which seems so trivial but you feel so ill. I couldn't face anything - shows how bad I was that Hubby cooked twice lol!
Anyway today I'm feeling a bit stronger and wanted to try and be creative. To give me a bit of a mojo boost, I thought I'd have a go at the Addicted to CAS challenge which is pets. I love my pets - I have two dogs and two cats and love them both for their own personalities but I think I will always have cats and not necessarily always have dogs as I get older.
My favourite cats are black or black and white - and its sad that they are so often overlooked as people are superstitious about them. I always think of them as lucky black cats and my little cat Jet is a treasure!
Here he is looking guilty - he had been in the sink licking a Valarian tea bag I had just used. Apparently Valarian is like catmint for them and he loves it!
Here's my card for the Challenge. I used the Beautiful You set - which is the lovely background stamps in the set. Just goes to show you can use sets outside of the main images that are in them.
I didn't really have an animal stamp and suddenly remembered my Foxy Friends punch and set which I haven't used in a while. I punched it out in black and embossed the face in white embossing powder.
The little Hello is from a Project Life set Date It - also often overlooked as stamp sets but this one has 82 stamps in it!!!!!
The colours I used for the background were Watermelon Wonder, Tangerine Tango and Crushed Curry.
As usual all products can be purchased direct from my store and don't forget SALE-A-BRATION is still on and you can get FREE stamps if you qualify.
