more cats!

Hello there - well it was Penny's birthday yesterday - she had a lovely day despite being at school!Thanks for all the well wishes and a big thanks to Rebecca for your card - it was beautiful and Penny loved it!!!

Well the card I've made to show to you today is another one featuring cats - its for my friend Sandy who has been adopted as mum by 5 wonderful cats - so when I was lucky enough to enjoy a win at Eureka stamps I knew I had to have this particular image.

I've coloured my image with promarkers - and distressed around the edges with tumbled glass DI. The die is spellbinders. The brown paper is from a pad of Graphics 45 colour core -dinations  paper that I've sanded to reveal the pattern and distressed around the edges - the patterned paper is from the wonderful engraver pad by Prima that I bought at bunny zoes. The twine and charm are from a win a long time ago.

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

pennyschallenges: Anything goes
TPSthepapershelter: Celebrations
craftsandmechallenges: Add a charm
ilovepromarkers: 4 legged friend

Hope you're having a good day - I'm taking my mum to do her shopping today! But then I'll be back to the exercise tonight with aerobics followed by boxercise! Woo hoo! Looking forward to that!

Have a fun day and thanks for dropping by!

Big Hugs
