My favourite stamp

Good morning all - its definitely rainy here in Hornby this morning but thankfully the snow that has been forecast for some parts of the country hasn't come here .......yet! You never know - I'm just hoping I wasn't a little rash in putting the sweet peas out when I did.

Enough of my mind meanderings - I've got a card to load up here before I have to dash out with my children to my mum's - hooray for Nanny!

I've only recently got this stamp but am totally in love with it at the moment - of course its from Gorjuss - I've coloured her in using promarkers and left the cat white - just like my own little furbaby - although she has a black tail! Anyway, The papers I've used are from the Nitwit collection and the lace came from dunelm mill. The swirl stamp I've used is an old one from creative expressions - might be a sheena one - can't remember. I've used some chiffon ribbon and followed the sketch from the sweet stampin challenge.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Totally Gorjuss: Swirls and whorls
