It's been a bit of a rough week

On Sunday evening my dearest darling cat disappeared. I've been out searching and dropping leaflets through the doors of my neighbours but to no avail. I have always been somewhat obsessed by cats (don't worry, I'm not some freaky cat lady with cats everywhere) I've never been able to pass one in the street without saying hello. It used to take me an hour to walk a quarter of a mile home from the bus stop as I had to stroke all of the cats on the way down the hill. They all used to lie on the wall of their front garden ready and waiting - LOL! Needless to say I'm somewhat heart broken and very lost without my kitty to cuddle. When I spoke to the vet on Wednesday, they informed me that 2 other cats had gone missing in the previous two days which is a good indication that someone has snatched him. Fingers crossed he is found soon and if someone has stolen him to sell on, hopefully he'll have nice new owners that'll be responsible and take him to the vet for a check who'll find his microchip and he'll be brought home to me. Got to think positive!! He's a pic of my beautiful Sampson aka Sammy. So let me know if you see him on your travels -LOL!

Anyway onto happier things...

I've made a card for this weeks challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps 'How Charming'. After missing last week's deadline I was determined to get this one done with time to spare.

I've used the brand new and fabulous Florence for this card. I did a car boot sale on Sunday and made a whopping £94. I decided the week before the car boot that if I made £100 I would treat myself to a new stamp. I figured 94 was close enough and I couldn't resist this beauty. As soon as I saw it on the previews I thought of my Banana Flip-Flop paper from Imaginisce and flip-flop charm from Bunny-Zoes and this is the result. I've also used some ribbon from my stash, but you figured that out from the pic - right! Florence has been coloured with my copics and the beach as been added with chalks.

Thank you for stopping by and for your help in my quest for finding my kitty.

Time for tea with Kraftin Kimmie

Howdy! Long time no see ;)

The challenge this week over at Kraftin Kimmie was anything but a card. A fair few weeks ago I got upset about something that I really shouldn't have and my dearest darling friend Jen made everything all better. At the time I had intended to make her a card to show her just how much I appreciate her friendship. Needless to say with one thing and another I didn't get round to it. Upon seeing the challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie, I had the brainwave of making her a nice gift box filled with her favourite vanilla tea featuring the spring tea party stamps and volia!

I created the box using my fantabulous Scor-Pal. I've used Gabrielle, Giselle, Lisette and Nadie stamps from the one and only Kraftin Kimmie Stamps along with the co-ordinating 'You're Tea-rific' from Kimmie's Tea Sentiments. I've coloured the lovely ladies with my copics. The beautiful flowers are from Ladybug and friends which have been finished with some crystals. I've finished the top of the box with my absolute favourite MS punch -Simple!

Lovely to see you all as always. Hopefully I'll see you again before this gloriously hot weekend is over. Thanks for stopping by.

Edited to Add: PC went doolally so I missed the deadline for KKS challenge = gutted!

Angry Ballerina goes purple.

Last week I went to see my lovely mum down in Oxford. She's just had an op so we all went down to visit for a mini holiday and to help her around the house etc. I got to see my cousins, aunt, uncle and granny whilst I was there. It's amazing what the lure of a little person will do to people schedules - LOL

There's been all kinds of excitement going on with the elections. I know its not everyone's cup of tea, but I've really enjoyed watching everything unfold. Let just see how the conservative libdem coalition works out...

Anywho, back to cards - wooo! I managed to spend a couple of evenings colouring at my mums. It was a matter of sitting on the floor at the coffee table, but the pain is worth it - right?!?

I coloured up my Angry Ballerina stamp from Kraftin Kimmie. I've gone with a purple combo, mainly because I don't have much in the way of pink copics. What can I say I'm not a pink girly girl. I've mounted her on some plain bazzil cardstock and added a ribbon from my stash. I'm pretty sure I got it in hobbycraft. To be totally frank I think I would prefer it without the bow (much to my husbands annoyance, seeing as he lended me his fingers in order to create it!), but I had a slight ink splodge from when i inked up the stamp so I was just hiding it.

And joy of joys my prismacolour pencils have arrived, only a month after I ordered them (damn volcano!) I can't wait to give them a go. If anyone has any tips or hints I would welcome them as I've only got youtube to teach me.

See you soon.
