Cat Bath


Firstly i would like to thank : KayJulesChristine / TillyClairSandraAnn and Janice for their fabby birthday cards.  I had a lovely birthday at RHS Harlow Carr, where we did a Easter Egg Hunt, whilst in Yorkshire we went to Xscape  and Elsecar Heritage Centre ( had to squeeze in a craftshop 'The Craft Box'), we came home on Sunday night, to avoid the madness on Monday !!

Has anyone upgraded their blogs yet ?, as i keep getting a message to upgrade, only thing is i had a wee look at it, and i prefer the old system.

I've used an old stamp today - dated 2000, it was put onto a transparent set, but i prefer the wooden   one, as it's a bigger design. The papers are also an old K & Co - 'Amy Butler Belle', the dies i've used are new : Labels 10 and Memory Box - 'Madera Corner', that i've added pearls too.

Todays Card and Challenges :

Paper Sundaes - where Challenge No: 115 is a 'Sundae Bar' - Kraft, Lace, Die Cut and Charm - the 2 i've used are Die Cut (Labels 10 and Madera Corner) and Lace

Allsorts - where Challenge No: 149 is 'Colour Bingo' -
I've gone for top row : Green, Lace, Pink and Diagonal : Pink, Stripes, Pearls

Totally Gorjuss - where Challenge No: 115 is 'It's A Sketch' and a fabby at that

CES - where Challenge No: 80 is 'Swirls and Pearls'

Image - Penny Black - 'Cat Bath'
Sentiment - Sentiments 4 You
Papers - K & Co - 'Amy Butler Belle'
Corner Die - Memory Box - 'Madera Corner'
Nesties - Label 10
Lace and Pearls from stash

Thanks for looking, Luv Sam
