Merry Kitty


We had a lovely weekend, both weather wise and doing things.  I have one very tired 5 year old at the moment and half term cannot come soon enough.

I loved the picture over at Winter Wonderland and it inspired me to make a card using contemporary colours - i found this cutie stamp playing with a bauble, then had a look at my Xmas papers and found DCWV - 'Rose Tinted Christmas Stack', the border is by Memory Box - 'Frostyville Border' highlighted with Papermania Gems, the snowflakes are Marianne D and the middles are Dovecraft brads.

Today's Card And Challenges :

Beautiful card Sam & I love the colour & all those die cuts. Poor H wouldn't have lasted the pace here this weekend if he is tired already, parks, castles, lunch out, and swimming + crafty time and the Garfield DVD - good job they get up early or we wouldn't have fitted everything in! Jx
